Fiat Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Fiat is a usual error. And what you want to do about it will depend on various things. In the event that you want to know what you have to do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to think about whenever deciding on whether to get the car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Fiat, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Fiat Stilo Multi Wagon is normally around 58 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 2.9 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Stilo Multi Wagon will normally not be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 2.9 litres (which is about 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted simply by entirely topping up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is extremely rare to find a car or truck having issues with under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is rare - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are some motor vehicles that don't stand any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.9 and 5.8 litres of Diesel in the Fiat (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has revealed that as many people get away with this as those who don't. Whenever you are deciding whether or not to risk it and simply fill it up remember that it is much like gambling everything on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 5.8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Stilo Multi Wagon should straightaway be removed seeing that your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is certainly below one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Fiat and drove it: Have you detected any performance troubles after putting the wrong fuel in the Stilo Multi Wagon? In that case, get it drained no matter the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive driving an automobile that is beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will just end up in progressively more harm being caused to your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of risk affiliated with operating a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you recognise any of them cease driving and have it drained right now.

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.
