Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler is a regular error. And exactly what you need to do about it is determined by various factors. In case you would like to know what it is best to do to fix it then please read on.
These are the most important variables to be aware of whenever deciding on whether to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in the Chrysler, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Chrysler PT Cruiser CRD is most likely approximately 57 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, as little as 2.85 litres of Petrol in a Diesel PT Cruiser CRD will normally not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 2.85 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted by means of completely filling up the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's extremely rare to encounter a car or truck having problems with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are certain automobiles that will not endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2.85 and 5.7 litres of Petrol in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever you are figuring out whether or not to risk it and just fill it up remember that it is exactly like gambling everything on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything above 5.7 litres of Petrol in your Diesel PT Cruiser CRD must straightaway be drained seeing that your likelihood of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler and drove it: Have you spotted any performance concerns after putting the wrong fuel in your PT Cruiser CRD? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running a vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will definitely result in more harm being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for reassurance?
    You should get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of threat in connection with operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable implications of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the commonest Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and should you detect any of them cease driving and have it drained immediately.

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.
