Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a regularly occurring error. And what you have to do about it is dependent upon several things. If you want to know what to do about it then continue reading.
Listed here are the most crucial factors to take into account when making a decision whether to get the car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Chrysler, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Chrysler Crossfire is in most cases about 60 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, something like 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Crossfire will usually not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 3 litres (5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is usually capable of being completely diluted simply by completely topping up the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's quite rare to find a vehicle experiencing issues due to lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very rare - in no way impossible to find. There are actually certain cars that won't endure any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience demonstrates that as many people get away with it as those people who don't. Any time you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and simply fill it up recognise that it is the same as wagering it all on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Crossfire should promptly be drained out since your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in fifty - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in your Crossfire? If you have, get it drained irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still driving a car that is already beginning to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will probably definitely result in even more damage being done to the fuel system.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some degree of threat associated with driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the engine not starting, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and the like. These are several of the most typical Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you observe any of them then stop and get it removed asap.

Avoid getting any unqualified mechanic to try to drain your automobile. We are Chrysler specialists and have the skills and expertise required to make certain you get back on the road with minimal hassle or worry.

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.
