Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a very common problem. And what you want to do about it is dependent upon a few things. Assuming you want to know what you ought to do to fix it then read on.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to to consider when making a decision whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in the Suzuki, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Suzuki SJ Samurai is usually around 40 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, less than 2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol SJ Samurai will more often than not not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities less than 2 litres (5% of the fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be adequately diluted by means of completely topping up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is very uncommon to find a car experiencing problems because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is infrequent - in no way impossible to encounter. There are some automobiles that won't endure any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2 and 4 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as those who break down. Whenever deciding on whether or not to risk it and basically fill it up remember that it is the same thing as wagering it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 4 litres of Diesel in your Petrol SJ Samurai must immediately be removed because your probability of driving with that quantity of contamination is more than likely lower than one in 50 - definitely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you detected any performance problems as a result of putting the bad fuel in the SJ Samurai? In that case, get it drained irrespective of the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continually driving an automobile that is already starting to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination can only lead to more and more damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of risk linked with operating a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible implications of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them stop and have it removed asap.

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.
