Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a regular mistake to make. And its solution will depend on a few things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you need to do to fix it then keep on reading.
Right here are the main variables to be aware of when deciding on whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put in to the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Chrysler PT Cruiser is usually about 57 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, something like 2.85 litres of Diesel in a Petrol PT Cruiser will generally not be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 2.85 litres (approximately 5% of the overall fuel tank) is oftentimes able to be sufficiently diluted by means of entirely topping up the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is extremely unusual to find a vehicle experiencing issues with less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequent - definitely not impossible to encounter. You will discover a few automobiles that won't endure any level of contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.85 and 5.7 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you're deciding upon whether to chance it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is much like wagering all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 5.7 litres of Diesel in your Petrol PT Cruiser really should as soon as possible be removed as your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is very likely less than one in fifty - really huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance concerns since putting the bad fuel in the PT Cruiser? If that's the case, get it removed irrespective of the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is already beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will typically cause even more damage being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably some amount of danger linked with driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely results of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and so on. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you recognise any of them then stop and have it removed 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.
