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 depends upon a number of factors. If you want to find out what it is best to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Here are the most crucial factors to think about whenever determining whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Chrysler New Yorker is probably about 68 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, something like 3.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol New Yorker will in most cases not really be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 3.4 litres (which is roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank) is usually capable of being adequately diluted by means of wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's quite rare to encounter a vehicle going through problems with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's infrequently found - certainly not impossible to encounter. You will discover a few vehicles that don't stand any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.4 and 6.8 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has proven that as many motorists get away with it as those people who don't. When you are deciding upon whether or not to chance it and basically top it up remember that it is exactly like wagering everything on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 6.8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol New Yorker really should straight away be drained out since your probability of driving with that amount of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you detected any performance difficulties ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the New Yorker? If that's the case, get it emptied regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still running a motor vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will probably definitely be responsible for more and more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you need security?
    Then simply just get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of danger connected to driving a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you detect any of them stop and have it drained right away.

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.
