Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a fairly typical mistake. And exactly what you want to do about it varies according to several factors. Assuming you want to find out what it is advisable to do to fix it then please read on.
Listed here the key variables to be aware of when determining whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in the Chrysler, considering that the fuel capacity of your Chrysler Grand Voyager is in most cases about 75 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, less than 3.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grand Voyager will normally not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 3.75 litres (approximately 5% of the total fuel tank) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted simply by wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is very rare to encounter an automobile experiencing issues because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very rare - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of motor vehicles that don't stand any degree of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as those who break down. Any time you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and just simply fill it up bear in mind that it is exactly like gambling everything on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 7.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grand Voyager should really as soon as possible be removed since your likelihood of succeeding with that level of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems since putting the incorrect fuel in your Grand Voyager? If you have, have it emptied no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still driving a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can just cause increasing amounts of damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Then simply just get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always some amount of risk resulting from driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible implications of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you recognise any of them then stop driving and get it removed right away.

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.
