SsangYong Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong is a well-known mistake to make. And its remedy varies according to several things. In the event that you want to know what it is best to do to sort it out then keep reading.
Listed here the most important variables to keep in mind whenever deciding whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in to the SsangYong, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the SsangYong Rexton Rx 320 is normally roughly 80 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, less than 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Rexton Rx 320 will generally not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 4 litres (approximately 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is generally able to be sufficiently diluted by means of entirely filling the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's highly unusual to encounter a car going through difficulties due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is unusual - not impossible to find. You can get a number of motor vehicles that won't stand any degree of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the SsangYong (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever deciding on whether or not to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is much like gambling all of it on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Rexton Rx 320 should really straightaway be removed because your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is probably below one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol SsangYong and drove it: Have you observed any performance troubles as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the Rexton Rx 320? If you have, get it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can definitely bring about more damage being caused to the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably some amount of threat in connection with driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop and have it removed immediately.

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.
