Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its solution will depend on several different factors. Assuming you would like to know what you should do about this then keep on reading.
Right here are the most important variables to take into account when deciding on whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put into the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Chrysler LeBaron is normally about 53 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, less than 2.65 litres of Diesel in a Petrol LeBaron will in most cases not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 2.65 litres (almost 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is very often capable of being completely diluted by means of entirely filling the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is rather unusual to encounter an automobile experiencing problems because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very rare - in no way impossible to find. There are actually certain cars that won't stand any quantity of contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 2.65 and 5.3 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those who don't. Any time you're deciding whether to chance it and basically top it up consider that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 5.3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol LeBaron should really immediately be drained out seeing that your probability of driving with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in 50 - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems since putting the bad fuel in your LeBaron? If so, have it emptied no matter the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination can only result in more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like security?
    You should get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some degree of threat connected to operating a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most common Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you observe any of them stop driving and have it drained right now.

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.
