SsangYong Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel SsangYong is a very common error. And its solution is dependent upon several factors. Assuming you want to know what to do about this then read on.
Listed here the most crucial factors to take into account whenever deciding on whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol have you put in the SsangYong, considering that the fuel tank capacity of your SsangYong Kyron LV7 is usually roughly 75 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, as little as 3.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Kyron LV7 will normally not be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3.75 litres (5% of the fuel tank capacity) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted by totally topping up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's relatively uncommon to find a vehicle having issues because of lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it is rare - definitely not impossible to find. You can get some automobiles that won't stand any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Petrol in the SsangYong (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with this as all those who break down. When you are figuring out whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up remember that it is the same as wagering your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 7.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Kyron LV7 must as soon as possible be removed because your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly below one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel SsangYong and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance troubles after putting the incorrect fuel in your Kyron LV7? In that case, have it emptied no matter the amount of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably only lead to more damage being done to the fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Then simply just get it drained. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is invariably some amount of danger linked with operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them stop driving and get it removed asap.

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.
