Chevrolet Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Chevrolet is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy will depend on a few things. If you want to know what you must do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here are the key variables to take into consideration whenever figuring out whether to get it drained:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in the Chevrolet, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Chevrolet Orlando D is usually around 64 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, as little as 3.2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Orlando D will usually not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that anything under 3.2 litres (about 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted simply by thoroughly filling up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's extremely rare to find a motor vehicle having difficulties due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get a number of cars that won't stand any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 3.2 and 6.4 litres of Petrol in the Chevrolet (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. Any time you are deciding whether to risk it and just simply fill it up remember that it is much like gambling everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 6.4 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Orlando D should promptly be removed seeing that your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Chevrolet and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance problems after putting the incorrect fuel in your Orlando D? If you have, get it drained no matter the amount of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Still driving a vehicle that is now starting to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will typically lead to increasing amounts of harm affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of risk linked with driving a Diesel engine on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are several of the most common Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you observe any of them then cease driving and have it drained right away.

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.
