SsangYong Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong is a very common mistake. And its remedy is based on an assortment of factors. If you would like to know what it is advisable to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Listed here the most crucial variables to to consider whenever choosing whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the SsangYong, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your SsangYong Korando E32 is usually around 70 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 3.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Korando E32 will normally not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 3.5 litres (which is close to 5% of the fuel tank volume) is in many instances capable of being completely diluted by totally filling the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely uncommon to find a vehicle experiencing difficulties due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it is very unusual - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are actually certain motor vehicles that won't stand any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.5 and 7 litres of Diesel in the SsangYong (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience demonstrates that as many motorists get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever you are deciding whether to risk it and just simply fill it up remember that it is the same as wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything above 7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Korando E32 should straight away be removed because your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly less than one in fifty - genuinely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Korando E32? In that case, get it emptied no matter the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run running a car that is starting to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination can only lead to more harm being caused to the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Simply get it drained. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some extent of risk caused by running a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop and get it removed right now.

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.
