SsangYong Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel SsangYong is a regular problem. And its solution is determined by various things. If perhaps you want to find out what you ought to do about it then keep on reading.
Listed here the most crucial factors to be aware of whenever deciding whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put into the SsangYong, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the SsangYong Musso is most likely around 80 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, less than 4 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Musso will typically not be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 4 litres (5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted by totally filling up the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely rare to encounter an automobile going through difficulties due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. You can get certain cars that will not endure any amount of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 4 and 8 litres of Petrol in the SsangYong (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you're deciding on whether or not to chance it and simply fill it up remember that it is the same as wagering all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 8 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Musso must immediately be removed since your probability of getting away with that level of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in 50 - seriously long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel SsangYong and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems since putting the wrong fuel in your Musso? In that case, get it drained no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive driving an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will definitely bring about more and more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you need security?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably some amount of threat in connection with running a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Probable outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you observe any of them stop and have it removed right now.

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.
