Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a regular mistake. And its solution hinges on an assortment of things. In case you want to find out what you need to do to sort it out then keep reading.
These are the key variables to keep in mind when making a decision whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in the Suzuki, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Suzuki Liana is probably about 50 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 2.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Liana will quite often not really be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 2.5 litres (which is approximately 5% of the fuel tank volume) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted simply by wholly topping up the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is rather uncommon to find a car suffering from issues with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very infrequent - certainly not impossible to find. There are some automobiles that won't stand any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2.5 and 5 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has shown that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. When deciding upon whether or not to risk it and just fill it up bear in mind that it is the same as betting all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Liana ought to as soon as possible be drained seeing as your probability of driving with that quantity of contamination is very likely below one in 50 - really long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you detected any performance concerns after putting the bad fuel in your Liana? In that case, get it drained regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive driving a vehicle that is starting to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably likely lead to progressively more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need peace of mind?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk resulting from running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable implications of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them stop and have it removed asap.

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.
