Suzuki Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki is a regular error. And its remedy depends on several factors. If you want to know what you ought to do about this then keep reading.
Let us discuss the key factors to take into consideration when deciding on whether to get your car drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in to the Suzuki, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Suzuki Wagon DDiS is most likely roughly 41 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.05 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Wagon DDiS will in most situations not really be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 2.05 litres (approximately 5% of the fuel tank volume) is quite often able to be sufficiently diluted simply by wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's rather rare to come across a car having difficulties with less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are actually a few automobiles that won't endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.05 and 4.1 litres of Petrol in the Suzuki (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with it as those people who break down. When trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up recognise that it is exactly like betting all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.1 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Wagon DDiS should right away be drained as your likelihood of getting away with that amount of contamination is more than likely less than one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Suzuki and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance troubles after putting the bad fuel in the Wagon DDiS? If so, have it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run running a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will definitely cause progressively more damage being done to the fuel system.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of danger affiliated with running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and the like. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them then stop and get it removed right away.

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.
