Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai is a well-known error. And its remedy varies according to a few things. Assuming you would like to find out what you need to do about this then read on.
Listed here the most crucial factors to take into account when determining whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in the Hyundai, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Hyundai Accent CRDi is probably roughly 45 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, less than 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Accent CRDi will in most situations not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 2.25 litres (roughly 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be adequately diluted through wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty rare to come across a motor vehicle having difficulties due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's unusual - not impossible to encounter. You can get a few motor vehicles that will not endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Hyundai (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. When deciding whether or not 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 being ok.
    3. Anything over 4.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Accent CRDi ought to promptly be drained since your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - really long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems as a result of putting the bad fuel in the Accent CRDi? If that's the case, get it drained regardless of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running a car that is currently beginning to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will just be responsible for more harm being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want reassurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk linked with operating a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible implications of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the motor not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, etc. These are several of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop and have it removed asap.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

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.
