Seat Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Seat is a regular error. And its remedy is based on several factors. In case you would like to know what it is advisable to do to fix it then read on.
Listed here are the key variables to be aware of whenever deciding on whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Seat, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Seat Toledo Anfora is probably roughly 55 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, as little as 2.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Toledo Anfora will typically not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has taught us that anything under 2.75 litres (close to 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of entirely filling the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's relatively rare to come across an automobile suffering from issues with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is very infrequently found - not impossible to find. There are some cars that will not endure any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Diesel in the Seat (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Any time you are deciding upon whether to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as wagering it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 5.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Toledo Anfora must immediately be removed seeing as your probability of getting away with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - extremely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Seat and drove it: Have you detected any performance issues as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Toledo Anfora? In that case, get it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving an automobile that is already beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will only end up in even more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    Then get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of risk connected to operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable results of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you detect any of them stop driving and have it removed right away.

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.
