Honda Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Honda is a very common error. And what you should do about it is based on a variety of things. Assuming you would like to find out what you have to do about it then read on.
Right here are the main factors to keep in mind whenever choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in to the Honda, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Honda S2000 is probably about 50 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 2.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol S2000 will in most cases not be a significant problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 2.5 litres (which is approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is usually capable of being adequately diluted through wholly topping the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It's quite rare to find a car or truck having issues due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get certain automobiles that won't endure any degree of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 2.5 and 5 litres of Diesel in the Honda (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has confirmed that as many drivers get away with it as all those who don't. Any time you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and simply top it up consider that it is just like gambling it all on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol S2000 really should straight away be drained as your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is undoubtedly below one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Honda and drove it: Have you noted any performance concerns as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the S2000? If you have, get it removed irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run running an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably likely end up in increasing amounts of damage affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you need security?
    Simply get it emptied. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk connected to driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you notice any of them then cease driving and get it drained immediately.

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.
