Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a regularly occurring mistake. And its remedy is dependent upon a few factors. If you want to find out what it is advisable to do about this then continue reading.
Listed here the most important factors to keep in mind whenever choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Peugeot, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot Bipper Tepee is normally around 45 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, something like 2.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Bipper Tepee will usually not be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that quantities less than 2.25 litres (approximately 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is quite often able to be adequately diluted by thoroughly topping up the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It is pretty uncommon to come across a car having issues due to less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is infrequent - certainly not impossible to find. You can get some automobiles that will not stand any degree of contamination at all.
    2. In between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has confirmed that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. When you are deciding whether to risk it and simply top it up consider that it is the same as gambling all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 4.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Bipper Tepee should really right away be drained out since your likelihood of driving with this level of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance issues since putting the incorrect fuel in the Bipper Tepee? In that case, have it drained no matter the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive driving a car that is currently starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will probably only bring about more damage being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is always some degree of threat linked with operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible consequences of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you recognise any of them cease driving and have it drained as soon as possible.

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.
