Daewoo Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its solution is based on several factors. Assuming you would like to find out what it is best to do about it then read on.
Right here are the main factors to take into account when deciding on whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Daewoo, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Daewoo Evanda is usually roughly 65 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, less than 3.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Evanda will usually not really be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 3.25 litres (which is close to 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is usually capable of being adequately diluted by means of thoroughly filling up the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's quite unusual to come across an automobile having difficulties due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is uncommon - not impossible to encounter. There are actually some motor vehicles that don't stand any level of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 3.25 and 6.5 litres of Diesel in the Daewoo (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our experience has proven that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. When you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is the same as wagering it all on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 6.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Evanda really should straight away be removed because your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is very likely less than one in 50 - really huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo and drove it: Have you spotted any performance issues ever since putting the wrong fuel in your Evanda? If you have, get it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run running an automobile that is already starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will just bring about progressively more damage being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    You should get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of danger linked with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop driving and get it removed 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.
