Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a well-known problem. And exactly what you need to do about it is based on various things. In the event that you would like to know what it is advisable to do about this then keep reading.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to consider when deciding whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Peugeot, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Peugeot 107 is normally about 35 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, less than 1.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 107 will in most cases not be a major problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 1.75 litres (approximately 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted through completely topping the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely unusual to find an automobile experiencing problems because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequently found - not impossible to encounter. You will discover some motor vehicles that don't endure any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 1.75 and 3.5 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience demonstrates that as many people get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding on whether to chance it and simply fill it up remember that it is just like betting it all on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 3.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 107 should really immediately be removed because your probability of driving with this amount of contamination is more than likely below one in fifty - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance issues since putting the bad fuel in your 107? If that's the case, have it emptied regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually running a vehicle that is starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination can definitely lead to even more harm being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for reassurance?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of threat connected with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely results of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you notice any of them stop and get it drained immediately.

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.
