Suzuki Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a well-known mistake. And its solution varies according to a variety of factors. In the event that you would like to know what it is advisable to do about this then keep on reading.
Right here are the most important factors to think about whenever deciding whether to get it drained:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Suzuki, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Suzuki Alto is normally approximately 35 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 1.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Alto will more often than not not really be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that quantities less than 1.75 litres (close to 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is oftentimes able to be completely diluted by means of totally topping the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It is quite uncommon to come across a car suffering from problems with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. There are actually a few motor vehicles that will not stand any level of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 1.75 and 3.5 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as those people who don't. When you are deciding whether or not to risk it and simply top it up recognise that it is exactly like betting all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 3.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Alto ought to right away be removed seeing that your probability of succeeding with that level of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in your Alto? In that case, get it drained regardless of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will likely result in even more damage being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    Simply get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk connected to driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and 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.
