Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a very common error. And what you need to do about it hinges on several different things. If you would like to know what you ought to do to fix it then stay with me.
Listed here the most crucial factors to consider when figuring out whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Suzuki, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Suzuki Jimny DDiS is most likely about 40 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, less than 2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Jimny DDiS will more often than not not be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 2 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted by thoroughly topping the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is pretty unusual to find an automobile suffering from problems because of less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's uncommon - not impossible to encounter. You will discover a few vehicles that won't endure any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 2 and 4 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is the same as betting your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 4 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Jimny DDiS ought to straightaway be removed because your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is very likely lower than one in fifty - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Jimny DDiS? In that case, have it removed regardless of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Still driving an automobile that is beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely result in even more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Then get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably some extent of danger resulting from driving a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable implications of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are some of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them then stop driving and have it removed asap.

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.
