Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its solution is based on a few things. Assuming you would like to find out what it is advisable to do about this then keep reading.
Here are the key variables to be aware of when deciding on whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in to the Peugeot, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot 207 CC is usually about 50 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 2.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 207 CC will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount less than 2.5 litres (which is close to 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is generally able to be adequately diluted through completely filling the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is pretty rare to encounter a vehicle suffering from issues because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is very infrequent - in no way impossible to find. There are certain automobiles that don't stand any quantity of contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 2.5 and 5 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has shown us that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. When you are trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just top it up recognise that it is very much like betting everything on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 207 CC ought to promptly be removed as your probability of driving with this level of contamination is almost certainly less than one in 50 - really big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you detected any performance issues since putting the bad fuel in the 207 CC? If so, get it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run driving a motor vehicle that is already beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will only cause even more damage affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    In that case get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some amount of threat linked with driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible consequences of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you observe any of them then stop and get it removed 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.
