Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a regularly occurring mistake. And exactly what you need to do about it is based on a variety of factors. Assuming you want to find out what you have to do to fix it then keep reading.
Right here are the most crucial factors to to consider whenever choosing whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Suzuki, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Suzuki Baleno is usually about 51 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, as little as 2.55 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Baleno will quite often not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount less than 2.55 litres (almost 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is quite often able to be completely diluted through entirely filling the tank with Petrol.
      It's relatively uncommon to come across a motor vehicle suffering from problems with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a number of vehicles that don't endure any level of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.55 and 5.1 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with it as those people who don't. When you are deciding upon whether or not to risk it and basically fill it up remember that it is just like betting all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 5.1 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Baleno should really promptly be drained out because your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is more than likely below one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you observed any performance problems ever since putting the wrong fuel in your Baleno? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run driving an automobile that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will typically lead to more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of threat in connection with operating a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible results of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, 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 signs and symptoms, and should you notice any of them stop 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.
