Daewoo Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo is a regular error. And what you need to do about it hinges on various factors. In the event that you would like to find out what to do about this then keep on reading.
Let us discuss the key variables to to consider when choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in to the Daewoo, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Daewoo Leganza Sx is most likely roughly 65 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, as little as 3.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Leganza Sx will quite often not really be a big problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3.25 litres (which is close to 5% of the whole fuel tank) is frequently capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of completely topping the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's extremely uncommon to find a car or truck suffering from problems because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very uncommon - not impossible to find. You will discover a number of automobiles that will not endure any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.25 and 6.5 litres of Diesel in the Daewoo (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you're figuring out whether to chance it and just top it up remember that it is just like betting all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 6.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Leganza Sx ought to as soon as possible be drained seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is very likely below one in fifty - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance problems after putting the wrong fuel in your Leganza Sx? In that case, get it drained no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continually running a motor vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will just bring about more and more harm being done to the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Then simply just get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some degree of risk associated with driving a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable consequences of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop driving and get it removed immediately.

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.
