Toyota Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Toyota is a regularly occurring error. And its solution hinges on a number of things. If you want to know what it is advisable to do to sort it out then stay with me.
Right here are the most crucial variables to take into consideration whenever deciding on whether to have it drained:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put in the Toyota, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Toyota Yaris D-4D is probably around 42 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, something like 2.1 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Yaris D-4D will usually not be a major problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 2.1 litres (5% of the fuel tank volume) is in many instances able to be sufficiently diluted through thoroughly topping the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's relatively unusual to encounter a car having difficulties with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is unusual - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a number of automobiles that won't stand any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.1 and 4.2 litres of Petrol in the Toyota (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with it as those who don't. When you are figuring out whether or not to risk it and just fill it up consider that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 4.2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Yaris D-4D should straight away be removed seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly below one in fifty - seriously big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Toyota and drove it: Have you seen any performance difficulties as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Yaris D-4D? If so, have it drained regardless of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely result in more and more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of risk resulting from running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then stop driving and get it removed asap.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Diesel car on Petrol cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Diesel and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
