Chevrolet Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet is a usual mistake. And its solution will depend on various factors. Assuming you would like to find out what it is best to do about this then keep reading.
Listed here the most important variables to think about when figuring out whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in the Chevrolet, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Chevrolet Beretta GT is normally approximately 57 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 2.85 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Beretta GT will more often than not not be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 2.85 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is often capable of being sufficiently diluted by entirely filling the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's relatively rare to come across a vehicle experiencing difficulties with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's uncommon - not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few automobiles that won't stand any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 2.85 and 5.7 litres of Diesel in the Chevrolet (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you're deciding upon whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up recognise that it is much like betting it all on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 5.7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Beretta GT must right away be removed seeing that your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance concerns since putting the incorrect fuel in your Beretta GT? In that case, get it emptied regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving an automobile that is now starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can definitely result in progressively more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want security?
    In that case get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk in connection with driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible results of driving on the wrong fuel include the engine not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you detect any of them then cease driving and have it drained asap.

Diesel in Petrol Questions

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

I put Diesel in a Petrol 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 Petrol car on Diesel 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 Diesel can I get away with in a Petrol 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 Petrol 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.
