SsangYong Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong is a regular mistake to make. And exactly what you want to do about it hinges on an assortment of factors. If perhaps you want to know what you need to do about this then stay with me.
Right here are the most important factors to take into consideration whenever deciding on whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the SsangYong, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the SsangYong Korando E is usually approximately 70 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, less than 3.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Korando E will normally not really be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 3.5 litres (which is almost 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is oftentimes capable of being completely diluted by wholly filling the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's quite rare to come across a car or truck going through issues with less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it's infrequent - in no way impossible to find. You can get a number of motor vehicles that don't endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.5 and 7 litres of Diesel in the SsangYong (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has revealed that as many drivers get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever figuring out whether or not to risk it and just top it up remember that it is just like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Korando E should really immediately be drained since your likelihood of driving with this amount of contamination is very likely lower than one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong and drove it: Have you observed any performance concerns since putting the wrong fuel in the Korando E? In that case, have it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely be responsible for progressively more harm being done to the fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    In that case get it emptied. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of danger in connection with driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable consequences of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you observe any of them stop and have 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.
