Skoda Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Skoda is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy depends on a variety of things. If you would like to know what you ought to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Listed here are the most important factors to consider when deciding on whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put in the Skoda, considering that the fuel tank capacity of your Skoda Yeti TSI is in most cases about 60 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Yeti TSI will more often than not not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 3 litres (about 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is sometimes capable of being adequately diluted through completely filling the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's very rare to encounter a car suffering from issues with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it's infrequently found - definitely not impossible to encounter. You can get some automobiles that don't stand any quantity of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Skoda (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many people get away with it as those who don't. Any time you're deciding whether or not to chance it and basically top it up remember that it is just like betting all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Yeti TSI should really straightaway be drained out because your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in fifty - definitely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Skoda and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance issues ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Yeti TSI? If that's the case, have it emptied regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continually driving a vehicle that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably likely cause more damage being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of threat linked with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are several of the most typical Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them cease driving and have it drained as soon as possible.

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.
