Suzuki Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a well-known mistake to make. And exactly what you should do about it is based on several things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you ought to do to fix it then read on.
Here are the key variables to consider when deciding on whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put in the Suzuki, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Suzuki Ignis DDiS is usually around 39 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, less than 1.95 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Ignis DDiS will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities under 1.95 litres (which is close to 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is often capable of being sufficiently diluted by wholly filling up the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty uncommon to find a motor vehicle having difficulties with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it's rare - in no way impossible to encounter. There are some vehicles that won't endure any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 1.95 and 3.9 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with this as those who break down. Any time you're deciding whether to risk it and basically top it up consider that it is very much like betting your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 3.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Ignis DDiS should promptly be removed seeing as your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is probably below one in fifty - really long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance problems after putting the bad fuel in the Ignis DDiS? If that's the case, have it drained regardless of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still driving a vehicle that is beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can just end up in progressively more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for peace of mind?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of threat affiliated with driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Possible outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, etc. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and if you notice any of them stop driving and have it drained immediately.

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.
