Hyundai Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai is a regularly occurring mistake to make. And its remedy varies according to a few things. If perhaps you want to find out what you ought to do to fix it then keep reading.
Right here are the most important factors to be aware of whenever figuring out whether to get it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in to the Hyundai, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Hyundai ix35 CRDi is in most cases about 58 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, less than 2.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel ix35 CRDi will normally not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 2.9 litres (close to 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is often able to be completely diluted by means of entirely topping up the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's very rare to encounter an automobile having problems due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequently found - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are certain motor vehicles that won't endure any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.9 and 5.8 litres of Petrol in the Hyundai (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with it as all those who don't. When deciding on whether to chance it and just top it up recognise that it is the same as betting it all on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 5.8 litres of Petrol in your Diesel ix35 CRDi really should immediately be removed as your likelihood of succeeding with that level of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - truly huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Hyundai and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems after putting the incorrect fuel in the ix35 CRDi? If so, get it removed regardless of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running a car that is currently starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can likely bring about increasing amounts of harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    You should get it drained. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some amount of danger associated with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you recognise any of them cease driving and have it removed asap.

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.
