Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a regular mistake. And what you should do about it is determined by an assortment of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then please read on.
Let us discuss the most crucial factors to take into consideration when deciding on whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in to the Fiat, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Fiat Bravo Multijet is most likely about 57 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.85 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Bravo Multijet will generally not really be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 2.85 litres (approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is sometimes able to be sufficiently diluted by thoroughly topping the tank with the right fuel.
      It is extremely rare to encounter a car experiencing difficulties due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to find. You can get some vehicles that won't stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.85 and 5.7 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. When you are deciding on whether to risk it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like gambling it all on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 5.7 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Bravo Multijet must promptly be drained since your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noted any performance difficulties since putting the bad fuel in the Bravo Multijet? If you have, get it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continually driving a vehicle that is currently starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination can only end up in more and more harm being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want security?
    In that case get it drained. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is always some amount of danger resulting from running a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Likely results of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them then stop and get it removed asap.

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.
