Dodge Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Dodge is a well-known mistake. And what you have to do about it is dependent upon several different things. In the event that you want to find out what to do to fix it then please read on.
Here are the main variables to consider whenever choosing whether to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol have you put in to the Dodge, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Dodge Nitro CRD is in most cases approximately 70 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, something like 3.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Nitro CRD will typically not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has proven to us that anything less than 3.5 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted by wholly filling the tank with Diesel.
      It's rather unusual to encounter a motor vehicle going through problems with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very rare - certainly not impossible to find. There are actually a few automobiles that will not endure any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Between 3.5 and 7 litres of Petrol in the Dodge (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. Whenever deciding upon whether to chance it and simply fill it up consider that it is the same thing as wagering your car on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything over 7 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Nitro CRD ought to immediately be removed seeing as your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably lower than one in fifty - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Dodge and drove it: Have you detected any performance troubles as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your Nitro CRD? If so, get it drained regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continually running a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely bring about more harm being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    You should get it drained. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably some extent of threat connected to operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, etc. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you notice any of them then stop driving and get 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.
