Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai is a usual mistake. And what you should do about it is determined by a number of things. In the event that you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then stay with me.
These are the most important variables to consider whenever figuring out whether to get it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in the Hyundai, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Hyundai Getz CRDi is most likely about 45 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, something like 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Getz CRDi will more often than not not really be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 2.25 litres (which is close to 5% of the total fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being adequately diluted by means of entirely topping the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's relatively unusual to encounter a motor vehicle experiencing issues due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is very unusual - in no way impossible to find. There are actually some automobiles that don't stand any amount of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Hyundai (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever you are figuring out whether or not to chance it and simply fill it up recognise that it is just like wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 4.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Getz CRDi really should straightaway be drained out since your likelihood of driving with this amount of contamination is probably below one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance troubles ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the Getz CRDi? If you have, have it removed regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Still running a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will only bring about more and more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Then get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of threat caused by operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Probable consequences of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them cease driving and have it removed right away.

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.
