Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler is a common problem. And exactly what you should do about it hinges on an assortment of things. If perhaps you would like to know what it is best to do about it then read on.
Let us discuss the most crucial variables to take into account whenever deciding on whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in the Chrysler, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Chrysler 300C CRD is in most cases about 71 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, as little as 3.55 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 300C CRD will generally not be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 3.55 litres (approximately 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is very often capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of totally topping up the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty rare to encounter a vehicle suffering from problems with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few motor vehicles that don't stand any level of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 3.55 and 7.1 litres of Petrol in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever you are deciding whether to chance it and simply top it up remember that it is just like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 7.1 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 300C CRD ought to as soon as possible be drained seeing as your probability of getting away with that quantity of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance concerns as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the 300C CRD? In that case, have it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running a vehicle that is now starting to suffer the effect of fuel contamination can typically end up in more and more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of risk linked with running a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible consequences of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them stop driving and have it removed as soon as possible.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel 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 Diesel car on Petrol 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 Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel 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 Diesel 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.
