Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a common mistake to make. And its remedy is dependent upon various things. If you would like to find out what you need to do about it then stay with me.
Right here are the key factors to think about when figuring out whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in the Suzuki, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Suzuki Liana DDiS is usually around 50 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, less than 2.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Liana DDiS will normally not be a huge problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 2.5 litres (5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be sufficiently diluted by means of thoroughly topping up the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's relatively uncommon to come across a vehicle going through issues due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. You will discover certain automobiles that won't stand any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 2.5 and 5 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding on whether to risk it and just top it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as wagering it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Liana DDiS should really straightaway be removed seeing as your probability of getting away with that amount of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in fifty - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you noted any performance issues as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the Liana DDiS? In that case, have it drained irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Still driving a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will likely cause more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you need reassurance?
    In that case get it drained. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of risk resulting from operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Probable outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them stop and have it drained 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.
