Daewoo Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo is a regular mistake to make. And exactly what you should do about it is determined by several different things. If perhaps you want to know what you should do about this then stay with me.
Here are the most important factors to consider when choosing whether or not to have it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Daewoo, considering that the fuel capacity of the Daewoo Rezzo is in most cases about 60 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, less than 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Rezzo will most of the time not really be a major problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 3 litres (which is almost 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is often capable of being adequately diluted simply by entirely filling up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is relatively unusual to find a motor vehicle suffering from issues because of below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's infrequently found - not impossible to find. There are actually a number of cars that don't endure any level of contamination at all.
    2. Between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Daewoo (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those who don't. Whenever trying to decide whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is much like wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Rezzo should immediately be removed since your probability of getting away with that quantity of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Daewoo and drove it: Have you noticed any performance difficulties after putting the incorrect fuel in the Rezzo? In that case, have it drained no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination can just cause more and more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for reassurance?
    In that case get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of risk connected to driving a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible implications of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them stop driving and get it drained as soon as possible.

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.
