Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a common mistake to make. And exactly what you want to do about it varies according to several different factors. If you want to find out what you need to do about it then please read on.
Listed here the most important factors to take into consideration whenever making a decision whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in to the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Chrysler Neon is probably approximately 47 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, as little as 2.35 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Neon will most of the time not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 2.35 litres (which is roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be adequately diluted simply by wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is quite unusual to come across a car suffering from issues due to under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very unusual - not impossible to find. There are a number of motor vehicles that don't stand any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.35 and 4.7 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Any time you are trying to decide whether to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is very much like betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.7 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Neon should really straightaway be removed since your likelihood of getting away with this amount of contamination is very likely less than one in 50 - really huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you seen any performance concerns after putting the wrong fuel in the Neon ? If that's the case, have it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still running a vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination can just lead to more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you need peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of danger affiliated with operating a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Likely implications of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor not starting, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you recognise any of them stop driving and have it drained immediately.

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.
