SsangYong Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong is a very common problem. And exactly what you should do about it is determined by a few factors. Assuming you would like to know what to do to fix it then continue reading.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to be aware of when making a decision whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in the SsangYong, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your SsangYong Musso E32 is most likely roughly 72 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, as little as 3.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Musso E32 will usually not be a big problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3.6 litres (which is approximately 5% of the total fuel tank) is quite often capable of being adequately diluted by means of completely topping up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is very unusual to come across a car or truck suffering from issues because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is rare - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are some motor vehicles that don't endure any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.6 and 7.2 litres of Diesel in the SsangYong (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience demonstrates that as many people get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever you are deciding whether or not to risk it and basically top it up recognise that it is exactly like betting all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 7.2 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Musso E32 ought to as soon as possible be drained out as your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is almost certainly less than one in fifty - seriously big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues since putting the incorrect fuel in your Musso E32? If that's the case, get it emptied irrespective of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive driving a vehicle that is starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will probably only cause even more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is always some extent of danger associated with running a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you detect any of them then 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.
