Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a common problem. And exactly what you want to do about it is dependent upon a number of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you should do to fix it then read on.
Listed here are the main variables to take into account when making a decision whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in the Suzuki, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Suzuki Grand Vitara DDiS is usually about 55 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, as little as 2.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Grand Vitara DDiS will most of the time not really be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that quantities less than 2.75 litres (roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank) is generally able to be sufficiently diluted by totally topping up the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty uncommon to encounter a motor vehicle going through issues with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's uncommon - in no way impossible to find. You can get a number of cars that won't endure any amount of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has shown that as many people get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are figuring out whether to chance it and just simply top it up recognise that it is the same as betting everything on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 5.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Grand Vitara DDiS really should as soon as possible be drained because your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems after putting the wrong fuel in your Grand Vitara DDiS? If you have, have it drained no matter the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is now beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can typically lead to progressively more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of risk linked with running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Possible results of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them stop driving and have 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.
