Kia Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Kia is a well-known problem. And what you have to do about it varies according to a few factors. Assuming you would like to find out what it is advisable to do about this then continue reading.
Right here are the main factors to take into account whenever making a decision whether or not to have it drained:

  1. How much Petrol did you put in to the Kia, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Kia ProCeed CRDi is normally around 53 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, something like 2.65 litres of Petrol in a Diesel ProCeed CRDi will normally not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 2.65 litres (approximately 5% of the fuel tank volume) is oftentimes capable of being completely diluted through wholly topping the tank with Diesel.
      It's extremely uncommon to find an automobile suffering from issues with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it's unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are a few motor vehicles that will not endure any quantity of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 2.65 and 5.3 litres of Petrol in the Kia (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has revealed that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever deciding on whether or not to risk it and basically top it up consider that it is just like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 5.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel ProCeed CRDi ought to straightaway be removed seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - definitely big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Kia and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance difficulties as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the ProCeed CRDi? If that's the case, get it drained no matter the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will just bring about increasing amounts of harm being caused to your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of danger affiliated with driving a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you recognise any of them then cease driving and get it removed 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.
