Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a usual mistake to make. And its remedy is determined by a number of factors. If perhaps you want to know what it is advisable to do to fix it then continue reading.
Let us discuss the most crucial factors to take into account whenever making a decision whether to have it drained:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put into the Peugeot, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Peugeot 106 is in most cases around 45 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, something like 2.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 106 will normally not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 2.25 litres (close to 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is usually capable of being adequately diluted by thoroughly filling up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's pretty uncommon to find a motor vehicle suffering from difficulties due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get some cars that don't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with this as all those who break down. Whenever you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and just fill it up remember that it is just like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 4.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 106 really should straightaway be removed since your probability of getting away with this quantity of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - definitely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you spotted any performance issues as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your 106? If you have, get it drained irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Still running a car that is currently beginning to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will typically be responsible for more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want reassurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of danger connected with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you recognise any of them then cease driving and have it removed asap.

Stay away from getting any unqualified so-and-so to attend your car. We are Peugeot experts and have the accreditation and practical experience needed to make certain that you are back on the road with no hassle or worry.

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.
