Hyundai Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai is a common mistake to make. And its solution hinges on several different things. In the event that you want to know what you ought to do to sort it out then keep reading.
Let us discuss the most crucial variables to to consider when figuring out whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in to the Hyundai, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Hyundai i10 CRDi is most likely about 35 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, as little as 1.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel i10 CRDi will more often than not not really be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 1.75 litres (which is 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is usually capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of completely topping up the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is rather unusual to find an automobile going through issues because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is infrequent - not impossible to find. You can get some motor vehicles that won't stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 1.75 and 3.5 litres of Petrol in the Hyundai (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has confirmed that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. When deciding upon whether to risk it and just simply fill it up bear in mind that it is exactly like wagering your car on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything over 3.5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel i10 CRDi ought to right away be drained out seeing as your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - definitely huge 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 incorrect fuel in your i10 CRDi? If that's the case, get it drained no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run running a car that is now beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will likely result in increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    You should get it drained. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of danger associated with operating a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop driving and get it drained 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.
