Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler is a fairly typical problem. And exactly what you should do about it is determined by a few things. If you want to know what to do to sort it out then stay with me.
These are the most important factors to consider whenever determining whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put into the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Chrysler Vision is usually about 68 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 3.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Vision will typically not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 3.4 litres (which is approximately 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is frequently capable of being completely diluted by completely topping the tank with the right fuel.
      It's highly uncommon to come across a motor vehicle having problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very rare - certainly not impossible to find. There are actually a number of vehicles that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.4 and 6.8 litres of Diesel in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many motorists get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever you are trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up recognise that it is very much like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 6.8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Vision must as soon as possible be drained since your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is more than likely lower than one in 50 - seriously big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any performance troubles as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the Vision? If so, get it drained no matter the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run driving a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will typically bring about more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you need peace of mind?
    Then get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always a certain level of risk linked with running a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving on the incorrect fuel include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, etc. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop and get it drained 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.
