Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a fairly typical problem. And what you should do about it depends on an assortment of things. If you would like to find out what you should do about this then continue reading.
Right here are the most important variables to consider when deciding on whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in the Suzuki, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Suzuki Swift is usually approximately 40 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, something like 2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Swift will typically not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 2 litres (about 5% of the entire fuel tank) is sometimes able to be adequately diluted by completely topping the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's relatively unusual to find a motor vehicle suffering from problems with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very infrequent - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get certain cars that will not stand any degree of contamination at all.
    2. In between 2 and 4 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are trying to decide whether to chance it and just top it up recognise that it is much like betting everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything over 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Swift should right away be removed seeing as your likelihood of driving with this amount of contamination is more than likely lower than one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you detected any performance concerns after putting the incorrect fuel in the Swift? If that's the case, have it removed irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely be responsible for even more damage being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Would you like security?
    Then simply just get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of risk in connection with running a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are several of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you recognise 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.
