Chrysler Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler is a fairly typical problem. And its remedy hinges on an assortment of things. Assuming you would like to know what to do to sort it out then keep on reading.
Right here are the main variables to take into consideration when figuring out whether to get the car drained:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in to the Chrysler, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Chrysler Voyager CRD is probably approximately 75 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, less than 3.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Voyager CRD will in most situations not really be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount less than 3.75 litres (5% of the fuel tank) is oftentimes capable of being completely diluted simply by entirely filling the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It is very rare to come across a vehicle experiencing difficulties because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very infrequently found - definitely not impossible to find. There are some vehicles that won't stand any amount of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Petrol in the Chrysler (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with it as those who break down. Any time you are deciding whether to chance it and basically fill it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as gambling your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 7.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Voyager CRD really should right away be drained because your likelihood of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - seriously big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Chrysler and drove it: Have you noticed any performance issues since putting the incorrect fuel in your Voyager CRD? If so, have it drained irrespective of the amount of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running a car that is beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will probably just result in more harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    You should get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of threat connected to running a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and if you detect any of them stop and get it drained right away.

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.
