Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a common mistake to make. And what you want to do about it hinges on a variety of things. Assuming you want to know what you have to do about this then please read on.
These are the key variables to take into consideration when choosing whether to get the car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Chrysler, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Chrysler Viper GTS is probably roughly 72 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 3.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Viper GTS will in most cases not be a huge problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 3.6 litres (which is roughly 5% of the entire fuel tank) is frequently capable of being adequately diluted simply by entirely topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is quite unusual to come across a motor vehicle suffering from difficulties with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very unusual - not impossible to encounter. You can get a number of vehicles that don't stand any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.6 and 7.2 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has proven that as many people get away with this as those who don't. When trying to decide whether to risk it and basically fill it up bear in mind that it is very much like betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 7.2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Viper GTS ought to straightaway be drained out seeing that your probability of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you seen any performance troubles ever since putting the wrong fuel in your Viper GTS? If that's the case, have it drained regardless of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run running a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can typically be responsible for even more damage being done to the fuel system.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some extent of risk caused by driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop and have it removed asap.

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.
