Dodge Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Dodge is a regular problem. And its solution is determined by various things. If you would like to know what you ought to do about it then keep on reading.
Here are the most crucial variables to to consider when determining whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in the Dodge, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Dodge Caliber is usually around 51 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, less than 2.55 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Caliber will quite often not be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 2.55 litres (which is almost 5% of the overall fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted simply by thoroughly filling up the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's extremely uncommon to encounter a vehicle going through issues with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very infrequently found - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are actually certain automobiles that don't stand any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.55 and 5.1 litres of Diesel in the Dodge (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has confirmed that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. When you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and just fill it up consider that it is just like wagering your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 5.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Caliber should right away be removed since your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is probably below one in 50 - truly huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Dodge and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance concerns as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the Caliber? If so, get it emptied no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive driving a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will likely be responsible for even more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Would you like security?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk caused by operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable consequences of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you recognise any of them then stop and get it removed asap.

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.
