Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai is a very common mistake to make. And its solution depends upon several things. If you would like to find out what you must do to sort it out then keep reading.
Listed here the most crucial variables to take into account when determining whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in to the Hyundai, considering that the fuel capacity of the Hyundai H-1 Travel is normally about 85 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, less than 4.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel H-1 Travel will most of the time not be a big problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4.25 litres (which is about 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be completely diluted by thoroughly filling up the tank with Diesel.
      It's extremely uncommon to come across a motor vehicle going through difficulties with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to find. You will discover certain motor vehicles that won't endure any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 4.25 and 8.5 litres of Petrol in the Hyundai (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has confirmed that as many motorists get away with it as all those who don't. When you are deciding whether to risk it and just top it up recognise that it is the same thing as betting all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 8.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel H-1 Travel should really straight away be removed as your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is certainly below one in 50 - really big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai and drove it: Have you spotted any performance difficulties ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the H-1 Travel? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Still driving an automobile that is starting to suffer the effect of fuel contamination can typically bring about increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you need peace of mind?
    Then get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is always some degree of danger in connection with running a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Likely implications of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them stop and get it drained right now.

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.
