Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Hyundai is a regularly occurring error. And its solution varies according to an assortment of things. If you want to find out what it is advisable to do to sort it out then keep on reading.
Let us discuss the most crucial factors to consider when making a decision whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Hyundai, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Hyundai Trajet is most likely roughly 65 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, something like 3.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Trajet will more often than not not really be a significant problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities less than 3.25 litres (5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is often capable of being completely diluted simply by totally filling the tank with Petrol.
      It is pretty unusual to find an automobile experiencing problems due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very uncommon - definitely not impossible to encounter. You can get certain automobiles that don't stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.25 and 6.5 litres of Diesel in the Hyundai (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has shown that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. When deciding upon whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is much like betting your car on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 6.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Trajet really should immediately be drained seeing as your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Hyundai and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance difficulties since putting the wrong fuel in your Trajet? If you have, have it emptied no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Still running a car that is now beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably likely bring about increasing amounts of harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Do you want reassurance?
    In that case get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger associated with driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely results of driving a car on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, etc. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then stop and have it drained right now.

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.
