Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a regularly occurring mistake. And its solution hinges on several different factors. If perhaps you would like to find out what you must do to sort it out then keep reading.
Listed here are the main variables to consider when choosing whether to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put into the Peugeot, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot 307 CC is probably approximately 60 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, as little as 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 307 CC will in most situations not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 3 litres (about 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted by totally topping the tank with Petrol.
      It is rather uncommon to find a motor vehicle suffering from issues due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of vehicles that won't stand any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many motorists get away with this as all those who don't. Any time you're trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up recognise that it is the same thing as betting everything on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 307 CC ought to immediately be removed as your probability of driving with this quantity of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in fifty - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in the 307 CC? If you have, have it removed no matter the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still driving a car that is now beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can only be responsible for increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of threat connected to running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and the like. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you notice any of them then stop and get it removed right away.

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.
