Mercedes Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Mercedes is a well-known mistake to make. And exactly what you want to do about it is determined by several things. Assuming you would like to find out what you ought to do about it then read on.
Right here are the most crucial variables to consider when making a decision whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put into the Mercedes, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Mercedes S600 is normally roughly 100 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, something like 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol S600 will normally not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 5 litres (almost 5% of the total fuel tank) is sometimes able to be completely diluted simply by wholly filling the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is extremely rare to encounter an automobile experiencing issues due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. There are a number of cars that won't stand any level of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Mercedes (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those people who break down. When you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is very much like wagering everything on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything over 10 litres of Diesel in a Petrol S600 really should immediately be drained out as your likelihood of driving with that amount of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Mercedes and drove it: Have you detected any performance issues after putting the bad fuel in your S600? If that's the case, have it emptied irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a car that is now beginning to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably just lead to more and more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is invariably some amount of danger connected with driving a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you detect any of them stop driving and get it drained as soon as possible.

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.
