Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy is based on a variety of things. Assuming you want to find out what it is best to do about this then read on.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to take into account when deciding whether or not to have it drained:

  1. How much Diesel have you put into the Suzuki, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Suzuki Vitara is normally about 42 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 2.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Vitara will most of the time not be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 2.1 litres (close to 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted by means of totally filling up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's very rare to come across a vehicle going through problems due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is unusual - in no way impossible to find. You will discover a few automobiles that will not stand any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 2.1 and 4.2 litres of Diesel in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. Whenever you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as gambling all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 4.2 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Vitara ought to right away be drained out as your probability of driving with this amount of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Suzuki and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance difficulties as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Vitara? In that case, have it removed no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still driving an automobile that is now beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will only end up in more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Then simply just get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of risk caused by operating a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you notice any of them stop and get it drained 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.
