Suzuki Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a regular error. And its remedy is dependent upon several different factors. In the event that you would like to know what you ought to do to sort it out then keep reading.
These are the key variables to take into consideration when choosing whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Suzuki, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Suzuki Sx4 DDiS is normally about 47 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, something like 2.35 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Sx4 DDiS will most of the time not be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities under 2.35 litres (close to 5% of the fuel tank volume) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted by means of entirely filling up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It is quite uncommon to come across a vehicle having problems due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is unusual - in no way impossible to encounter. You will discover certain motor vehicles that don't endure any degree of contamination at all.
    2. In between 2.35 and 4.7 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you're deciding whether to risk it and basically fill it up recognise that it is exactly like wagering all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 4.7 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Sx4 DDiS must straightaway be drained because your probability of driving with this level of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - truly long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance concerns since putting the wrong fuel in your Sx4 DDiS? If that's the case, get it removed no matter the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run driving a motor vehicle that is starting to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably typically cause more and more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    You should get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of danger resulting from operating a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible results of driving on the wrong fuel include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them then stop and get it drained right now.

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.
