Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a well-known error. And what you should do about it depends upon a number of things. In the event that you want to know what to do about this then continue reading.
Listed here the key variables to take into account when choosing whether to have the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put into the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Chrysler 300C is in most cases about 68 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, as little as 3.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 300C will usually not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities under 3.4 litres (which is close to 5% of the fuel tank volume) is oftentimes capable of being adequately diluted by entirely filling the tank with Petrol.
      It is very uncommon to find a vehicle going through problems because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it's rare - certainly not impossible to find. You can get certain motor vehicles that won't endure any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 3.4 and 6.8 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just fill it up recognise that it is exactly like gambling your car on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 6.8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 300C really should immediately be removed since your probability of getting away with that amount of contamination is probably below one in fifty - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you detected any performance issues since putting the bad fuel in the 300C? In that case, have it removed no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still driving a car that is currently starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will definitely result in even more damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    In that case get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is always some degree of risk connected with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them cease driving and get it removed as soon as possible.

Diesel in Petrol Questions

When someone has put Diesel in a Petrol car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Diesel in a Petrol 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 Petrol car on Diesel 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 Diesel can I get away with in a Petrol 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 Petrol 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.
