Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Fiat is a usual problem. And exactly what you need to do about it depends upon an assortment of things. Assuming you want to know what you have to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Listed below are the most crucial variables to to consider when determining whether or not to get it drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in to the Fiat, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Fiat Multipla is normally approximately 63 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, as little as 3.15 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Multipla will in most cases not be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 3.15 litres (which is roughly 5% of the total fuel tank) is in many instances able to be completely diluted simply by wholly topping up the tank with Petrol.
      It's highly unusual to find a car or truck going through issues due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is uncommon - definitely not impossible to find. You will discover some cars that will not stand any amount of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Diesel in the Fiat (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with it as those who break down. Whenever figuring out whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as wagering it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything more than 6.3 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Multipla must straight away be drained as your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Fiat and drove it: Have you seen any performance issues after putting the wrong fuel in your Multipla? If so, have it removed irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will just bring about increasing amounts of damage being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of risk connected to operating a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and so on. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you notice any of them stop and get it removed as soon as possible.

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.
