Chrysler Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler is a regular mistake. And its solution depends on several things. In case you would like to know what you must do to fix it then keep reading.
Right here are the main factors to think about whenever figuring out whether to get it drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put into the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Chrysler Grand Voyager CRD is most likely around 75 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, something like 3.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Grand Voyager CRD will most of the time not be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 3.75 litres (which is roughly 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is in many instances able to be adequately diluted simply by entirely topping the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's quite uncommon to encounter a vehicle having problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is unusual - definitely not impossible to find. There are some motor vehicles that don't endure any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Petrol in the Chrysler (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with it as those who don't. When deciding on whether to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is very much like wagering it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 7.5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Grand Voyager CRD should right away be drained out seeing as your likelihood of driving with this quantity of contamination is probably below one in fifty - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems since putting the incorrect fuel in the Grand Voyager CRD? If so, get it emptied regardless of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continually running a vehicle that is starting to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can just result in increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    In that case get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some amount of danger associated with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the motor not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them stop and have it drained right now.

Petrol in Diesel FAQs

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.
