Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a regular mistake. And exactly what you have to do about it varies according to a few factors. If you want to find out what it is advisable to do to sort it out then read on.
Listed here the key factors to keep in mind when determining whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in the Chrysler, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Chrysler Stratus is probably about 60 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, less than 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Stratus will most of the time not be a major problem. Experience has shown us that quantities less than 3 litres (about 5% of the fuel tank) is generally able to be adequately diluted simply by totally filling up the tank with Petrol.
      It is pretty unusual to encounter a car or truck having difficulties because of less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. There are a number of cars that won't endure any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as those who break down. Any time you are deciding whether to chance it and basically fill it up consider that it is very much like betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 6 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Stratus really should as soon as possible be drained out since your likelihood of getting away with that amount of contamination is very likely below one in fifty - really big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems after putting the bad fuel in the Stratus? If so, have it emptied no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running a car that is now starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will only lead to more and more damage being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like security?
    Simply get it emptied. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is always some amount of risk caused by operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, etc. These are some of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you recognise any of them then cease driving and get it removed right away.

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.
