Chevrolet Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet is a very common problem. And its solution hinges on a number of factors. In the event that you would like to find out what you ought to do about this then stay with me.
Listed below are the most important variables to take into consideration whenever figuring out whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. How much Diesel have you put in the Chevrolet, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Chevrolet Trans Sport is usually about 95 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 4.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Trans Sport will generally not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 4.75 litres (which is roughly 5% of the fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being adequately diluted through thoroughly topping the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It is relatively unusual to find a vehicle going through issues because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequently found - not impossible to encounter. You can get some automobiles that will not endure any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4.75 and 9.5 litres of Diesel in the Chevrolet (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has revealed that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you are deciding whether or not to risk it and just fill it up bear in mind that it is just like gambling it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 9.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Trans Sport should straightaway be drained seeing as your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is almost certainly less than one in 50 - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chevrolet and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance issues as a result of putting the bad fuel in the Trans Sport? If you have, get it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will likely be responsible for progressively more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of risk resulting from driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you observe any of them stop and get it drained right away.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
