Cadillac Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Cadillac is a usual error. And its remedy depends upon various things. Assuming you want to know what you have to do to fix it then read on.
Listed here the key variables to think about whenever deciding on whether to have the car drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in the Cadillac, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Cadillac BLS TiD is normally about 58 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, as little as 2.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel BLS TiD will more often than not not really be a major problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 2.9 litres (close to 5% of the fuel tank) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted through completely topping up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is relatively rare to find a car or truck having problems because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's unusual - in no way impossible to find. There are a number of automobiles that will not stand any amount of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.9 and 5.8 litres of Petrol in the Cadillac (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our experience has revealed that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. When you are deciding on whether to chance it and just top it up recognise that it is just like wagering your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 5.8 litres of Petrol in a Diesel BLS TiD should as soon as possible be drained seeing as your probability of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is more than likely lower than one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Cadillac and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues since putting the bad fuel in the BLS TiD? In that case, have it emptied no matter the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continually running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely cause increasing amounts of harm being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of danger associated with driving a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Possible consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop and get it drained as soon as possible.

Petrol in Diesel FAQs

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel 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 Diesel car on Petrol 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 Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel 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 Diesel 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.
