Isuzu Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Isuzu is a common error. And its solution is dependent upon a number of things. In the event that you want to find out what to do about it then read on.
Here are the most crucial factors to be aware of whenever figuring out whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Isuzu, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Isuzu Trooper is probably around 80 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, something like 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Trooper will in most situations not really be a major problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 4 litres (close to 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is in many instances able to be adequately diluted by completely topping the tank with Petrol.
      It is relatively unusual to come across an automobile suffering from issues due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's infrequently found - not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few automobiles that won't stand any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Isuzu (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has shown that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. Whenever deciding upon whether or not to chance it and just simply fill it up remember that it is exactly like gambling all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Trooper should straightaway be removed because your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is certainly lower than one in 50 - really long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Isuzu and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance difficulties ever since putting the bad fuel in your Trooper? If that's the case, have it emptied regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Still driving a car that is already starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will definitely be responsible for even more harm being done to the fuel system.
  3. Do you want reassurance?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of threat connected to operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you observe any of them then stop and get it removed right away.

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.
