Chevrolet Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet is a well-known mistake to make. And its solution is determined by a number of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you should do to sort it out then continue reading.
Right here are the key factors to keep in mind when choosing whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in the Chevrolet, considering that the fuel capacity of your Chevrolet Blazer LT is normally approximately 72 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, as little as 3.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Blazer LT will in most situations not really be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 3.6 litres (roughly 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is in many instances capable of being completely diluted by thoroughly filling the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is quite unusual to find a motor vehicle suffering from problems with less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. You can get a number of motor vehicles that don't endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.6 and 7.2 litres of Diesel in the Chevrolet (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has confirmed that as many people get away with it as those who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether to risk it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is just like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 7.2 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Blazer LT must right away be drained out seeing as your probability of getting away with that quantity of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet and drove it: Have you detected any performance problems ever since putting the wrong fuel in your Blazer LT? If so, get it removed irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a vehicle that is already beginning to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably just result in even more damage being caused to your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like security?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some degree of danger in connection with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then cease driving and have it removed right now.

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.
