Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a fairly typical problem. And its remedy is based on an assortment of things. In the event that you would like to know what it is advisable to do about this then please read on.
Let us discuss the key factors to keep in mind whenever making a decision whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in the Chrysler, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Chrysler Sebring is most likely approximately 61 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 3.05 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Sebring will usually not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 3.05 litres (which is roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is in many instances able to be completely diluted simply by totally filling up the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's very rare to come across a car having issues with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is rare - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of vehicles that don't endure any amount of contamination at all.
    2. In between 3.05 and 6.1 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with this as those people who don't. Whenever deciding whether to risk it and just top it up recognise that it is very much like wagering everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 6.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Sebring really should immediately be removed because your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance problems as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the Sebring? If that's the case, get it removed irrespective of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still driving a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will only bring about more and more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    In that case get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of threat connected with driving a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, etc. These are a few of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then stop and have it removed 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.
