Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a common problem. And its solution depends on a number of factors. In the event that you would like to find out what it is best to do to fix it then keep reading.
Listed here are the main variables to take into consideration whenever figuring out 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 the Peugeot 4007 is probably around 60 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, something like 3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 4007 will in most cases not be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that an amount less than 3 litres (roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted by means of totally filling the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is extremely rare to encounter a motor vehicle suffering from difficulties because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. You can get some automobiles that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3 and 6 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with it as those who don't. Whenever deciding whether or not to chance it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is much like gambling your car on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 6 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 4007 ought to straight away be removed seeing as your likelihood of driving with this amount of contamination is almost certainly less than one in fifty - seriously long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any performance troubles after putting the wrong fuel in your 4007? If you have, get it removed no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still running a vehicle that is beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably typically end up in even more harm being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Do you need reassurance?
    Then get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of danger resulting from operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and should you notice any of them 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.
