Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a common problem. And exactly what you have to do about it depends upon a number of things. If you want to find out what you ought to do about this then keep on reading.
Right here are the most important variables to be aware of whenever making a decision whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in to the Peugeot, considering that the fuel tank capacity of your Peugeot 1007 is in most cases around 40 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, less than 2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 1007 will normally not really be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 2 litres (roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be completely diluted by means of wholly filling the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is extremely uncommon to come across a car experiencing issues due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very uncommon - not impossible to encounter. You can get a few vehicles that won't endure any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 2 and 4 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever figuring out whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up consider that it is the same as betting all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 4 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 1007 ought to immediately be drained out seeing that your likelihood of driving with this level of contamination is very likely lower than one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you seen any performance concerns since putting the incorrect fuel in your 1007? If you have, get it drained no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a car that is now beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely end up in increasing amounts of harm affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    Then simply just get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of threat linked with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, etc. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and if you detect any of them then cease driving and have it drained asap.

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.
