Chevrolet Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet is a usual mistake. And exactly what you have to do about it is dependent upon a number of things. In the event that you want to know what you have to do to sort it out then stay with me.
Listed below are the main variables to keep in mind when figuring out whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put into the Chevrolet, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Chevrolet Camaro is usually roughly 72 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, something like 3.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Camaro will more often than not not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 3.6 litres (which is approximately 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted by completely topping the tank with Petrol.
      It is rather uncommon to come across a vehicle suffering from difficulties with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequently found - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get certain cars that won't endure any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 3.6 and 7.2 litres of Diesel in the Chevrolet (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with it as those who don't. Whenever you are figuring out whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up recognise that it is just like betting it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 7.2 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Camaro should immediately be drained out seeing that your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in fifty - really big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet and drove it: Have you noted any performance troubles ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the Camaro? If so, get it drained no matter the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive driving an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination can typically result in progressively more damage being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for peace of mind?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of danger resulting from driving a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the motor not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you notice any of them then stop and get 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.
