Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its remedy is based on a variety of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you need to do about it then keep reading.
Here are the key variables to to consider when choosing whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in the Peugeot, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of the Peugeot Partner is normally roughly 55 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, something like 2.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Partner will normally not really be a big problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 2.75 litres (which is roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is in many instances capable of being completely diluted through totally topping up the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's relatively unusual to find a motor vehicle experiencing difficulties due to lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it is very unusual - definitely not impossible to find. There are actually some automobiles that won't endure any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Diesel in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has confirmed that as many motorists get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you are figuring out whether to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is very much like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 5.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Partner really should immediately be drained seeing as your probability of driving with this level of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any performance troubles ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the Partner? If so, get it removed regardless of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Still driving a car that is starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will definitely bring about even more harm being done to your fuel system.
  3. Do you need security?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is always some extent of risk associated with driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely results of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you recognise any of them then stop and get it removed asap.

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.
