Dodge Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Dodge is a very common mistake to make. And exactly what you have to do about it depends upon a few things. If perhaps you want to find out what you ought to do about this then keep reading.
Here are the key factors to keep in mind whenever determining whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Dodge, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Dodge Viper SRT-10 is normally around 70 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, as little as 3.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Viper SRT-10 will more often than not not be a major problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3.5 litres (approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank) is usually capable of being completely diluted through thoroughly topping up the tank with the right fuel.
      It is rather uncommon to encounter a vehicle having problems due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it's rare - not impossible to find. There are some vehicles that don't endure any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.5 and 7 litres of Diesel in the Dodge (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has proven that as many drivers get away with it as all those who don't. Any time you're deciding upon whether to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is the same as wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Viper SRT-10 should really as soon as possible be removed since your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - definitely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Dodge and drove it: Have you noted any performance troubles after putting the wrong fuel in your Viper SRT-10? If that's the case, have it emptied irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive driving a car that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will probably likely end up in increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    You should get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk connected to operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you recognise any of them stop and get it drained right away.

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.
