LPG & Your Mitsubishi
Several of our Mitsubishi vehicles are LPG compatible, meaning you are able to convert them to a 'dual-fuel' system.
To enable reliable operation and ensure the durability of your vehicle, the LPG conversion must be performed in accordance with certain criteria.
Please ask your Mitsubishi dealer to confirm whether your vehicle's engine contains the internal components that make it suitable to operate on LPG.

Ethanol & Your Mitsubishi
Fuel ethanol is a high-octane, water free alcohol produced from the fermentation of sugar or converted starch. It is traditionally used as a blending ingredient at low concentrations in petroleum (gasoline) or as a raw material to produce high-octane fuel-ether additives. It is made mainly from grains or other renewable agricultural and agro-forestry feed stocks.
Please be aware that the Mitsubishi Diamond Advantage Warranty will not apply in the case of any failure or operational condition attributed to the use of incorrect, contaminated or poor quality fuel in your vehicle. Vehicles with carburettor fuel systems built before 1991 may experience hot fuel handling concerns and may experience a lower level of durability in some fuel system components.
Bio-diesel & Your Mitsubishi
Bio-diesel is a non-fossil fuel derived from renewable feed-stocks such as canola oil.
Diesel fuel mixed with bio-diesel in varying blends is sold in some areas of Australia. These blends are generally marketed as bio-diesel blends according to the amount of bio-diesel used. These include:
- B5 (95% diesel blended with 5% bio-diesel).
- B100 (100% bio-diesel).
Can I use a Bio-diesel blend in my Mitsubishi Vehicle?
All Mitsubishi diesel-powered vehicles can be used with diesel fuel blended bio-diesel provided it meets the requirements detailed below:
1. Amount of bio-diesel must be below 5% volume concentration (i.e. B5 or less).
2. Quality of bio-diesel must conform to the European Standard EN14214.
It is important that prior to using a bio-diesel blend in your vehicle that you ensure it satisfies the above requirements. It should also be noted that bio-diesel has a solvent effect that may release deposits which accumulate on fuel system components resulting in filter and/or injection pump clogging. Failures resulting from the use of any incorrect, contaminated or poor quality fuels are not warrantable defects and therefore the cost of repair will not be covered by your Mitsubishi Diamond Advantage Warranty.
