Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a well-known problem. And what you need to do about it hinges on an assortment of things. If perhaps you want to find out what to do about it then please read on.
Right here are the key factors to to consider when determining whether to have it drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Suzuki, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Suzuki Ignis is most likely around 41 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 2.05 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Ignis will in most cases not really be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities under 2.05 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank) is usually able to be completely diluted by thoroughly topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's pretty unusual to find a vehicle suffering from problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's rare - definitely not impossible to find. You will discover some motor vehicles that don't stand any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.05 and 4.1 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as all those who don't. Any time you're deciding whether to risk it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 4.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Ignis should really promptly be drained as your probability of getting away with that level of contamination is in all likelihood below one in fifty - definitely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance troubles ever since putting the bad fuel in your Ignis? If that's the case, have it emptied no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably just cause even more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    You should get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is invariably some extent of danger in connection with running a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible results of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop driving and have it removed right away.

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.
