Isuzu Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Isuzu is a usual mistake to make. And what you need to do about it hinges on several different factors. In the event that you would like to know what you must do to sort it out then keep on reading.
Listed below are the main factors to consider when choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put in the Isuzu, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Isuzu Trooper DTI is most likely approximately 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, something like 4 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Trooper DTI will generally not be a big problem. Experience has taught us that anything under 4 litres (which is about 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is sometimes capable of being adequately diluted by entirely filling the tank with Diesel.
      It is very rare to encounter a motor vehicle having problems because of lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's uncommon - not impossible to encounter. You will discover certain motor vehicles that will not stand any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 4 and 8 litres of Petrol in the Isuzu (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you're deciding upon whether or not to chance it and just fill it up bear in mind that it is the same as gambling it all on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 8 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Trooper DTI should really promptly be drained as your probability of getting away with that level of contamination is probably below one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Isuzu and drove it: Have you noticed any performance concerns since putting the incorrect fuel in your Trooper DTI? In that case, have it drained no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run running a car that is currently starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will probably typically lead to increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    Simply get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of danger connected to driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the motor not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop and get it drained right away.

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.
