Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a very common error. And its remedy is determined by several different factors. In the event that you would like to find out what it is best to do about it then stay with me.
Listed here the most important factors to think about when making a decision whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put into the Suzuki, considering that the fuel capacity of your Suzuki Splash DDiS is usually approximately 45 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Petrol, as little as 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Splash DDiS will in most cases not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 2.25 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is in many instances capable of being adequately diluted by means of completely filling the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It is highly uncommon to come across an automobile having difficulties because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is unusual - definitely not impossible to encounter. You will discover a number of vehicles that don't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with it as those people who don't. When you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and simply fill it up recognise that it is very much like wagering all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything above 4.5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Splash DDiS really should straight away be removed seeing that your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance troubles after putting the wrong fuel in the Splash DDiS? If so, have it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Still running a vehicle that is starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will only end up in more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    In that case get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of risk associated with running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Probable implications of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you detect 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.
