Daewoo Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo is a regular mistake. And its remedy depends on a few factors. If perhaps you would like to know what you need to do about this then read on.
Here are the most important factors to think about when making a decision whether or not to get it drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Daewoo, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Daewoo Nexia GL is probably approximately 50 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, as little as 2.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Nexia GL will generally not really be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 2.5 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted by totally filling up the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely unusual to find a car or truck suffering from problems due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very infrequently found - not impossible to encounter. You will discover some cars that don't stand any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.5 and 5 litres of Diesel in the Daewoo (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has confirmed that as many people get away with it as those who break down. Whenever trying to decide whether or not to risk it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Nexia GL ought to straight away be drained out as your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is probably below one in fifty - genuinely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance problems ever since putting the bad fuel in the Nexia GL? If you have, get it removed no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving an automobile that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can likely lead to even more harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Do you need reassurance?
    In that case get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of threat connected to running a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so on. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you notice any of them then stop driving and get it drained 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.
