Dodge Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Dodge is a regularly occurring error. And its remedy hinges on several things. Assuming you would like to find out what to do about it then continue reading.
These are the most important factors to to consider when choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in the Dodge, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Dodge Avenger is usually around 63 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 3.15 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Avenger will most of the time not be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that anything less than 3.15 litres (almost 5% of the total fuel tank volume) is frequently capable of being adequately diluted simply by totally topping up the tank with the right fuel.
      It's rather unusual to find a car experiencing problems with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's infrequently found - definitely not impossible to find. There are actually a number of cars that won't stand any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Diesel in the Dodge (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with this as all those who don't. When you are deciding upon whether to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is much like wagering all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 6.3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Avenger ought to immediately be drained as your likelihood of succeeding with that level of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Dodge and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance troubles as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Avenger? If that's the case, get it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive driving an automobile that is starting to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will likely bring about more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk resulting from driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely consequences of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them stop and have it removed immediately.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
