Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Hyundai is a very common problem. And what you need to do about it is dependent upon a variety of factors. In the event that you would like to know what you have to do about it then continue reading.
Right here are the key factors to keep in mind when choosing whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in the Hyundai, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Hyundai Getz is most likely around 45 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, something like 2.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Getz will typically not be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 2.25 litres (close to 5% of the whole fuel tank) is often capable of being sufficiently diluted by entirely topping up the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is rather uncommon to come across a motor vehicle going through issues with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequently found - definitely not impossible to find. There are actually some motor vehicles that won't endure any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Diesel in the Hyundai (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many motorists get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you are deciding whether or not to risk it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like wagering everything on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Getz must right away be drained because your likelihood of driving with this level of contamination is more than likely lower than one in fifty - really huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Hyundai and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance difficulties after putting the wrong fuel in the Getz? If you have, get it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually running a vehicle that is beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will definitely result in more and more damage affecting the fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    You should get it drained. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of threat associated with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible results of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop and have it removed asap.

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.
