Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a usual problem. And what you want to do about it depends on a few things. In the event that you want to know what it is best to do about this then keep on reading.
Here are the most crucial variables to take into consideration when determining whether to get it drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Chrysler 300M is normally approximately 64 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, as little as 3.2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 300M will normally not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 3.2 litres (which is about 5% of the overall fuel tank) is in many instances able to be adequately diluted by means of totally filling up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's highly unusual to come across a car or truck going through problems because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a few automobiles that will not stand any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.2 and 6.4 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has revealed that as many drivers get away with it as those who don't. Any time you're figuring out whether to chance it and simply top it up recognise that it is the same as gambling all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 6.4 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 300M must immediately be removed since your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is probably below one in fifty - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any performance difficulties as a result of putting the wrong fuel in your 300M? In that case, get it removed irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive driving a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will just cause more and more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you want reassurance?
    Then get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of threat resulting from operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them then stop and get it drained right now.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
