Suzuki Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a fairly typical mistake. And what you need to do about it is based on a number of things. In case you want to find out what you need to do about this then stay with me.
These are the most crucial factors to consider when deciding whether to have it drained:

  1. How much Petrol did you put in to the Suzuki, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Suzuki Swift DDiS is in most cases approximately 45 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, less than 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Swift DDiS will normally not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 2.25 litres (approximately 5% of the total fuel tank) is in many instances capable of being adequately diluted through wholly topping the tank with Diesel.
      It's quite unusual to find a vehicle experiencing issues due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. There are some vehicles that don't stand any quantity of 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 condition. Our working experience has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. Whenever you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and just fill it up bear in mind that it is just like wagering all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 4.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Swift DDiS must promptly be drained out seeing that your likelihood of succeeding with that amount of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - definitely big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you seen any performance troubles as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Swift DDiS? If so, get it emptied irrespective of the amount of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to run driving a car that is starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely result in more and more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk linked with operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely results of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and if you notice any of them then stop 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.
