Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a usual problem. And its solution varies according to an assortment of things. Assuming you would like to know what it is best to do about this then read on.
Right here are the most crucial factors to take into consideration when figuring out whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in to the Fiat, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Fiat Doblo JTD Multijet is in most cases approximately 60 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, something like 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Doblo JTD Multijet will in most cases not really be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 3 litres (which is approximately 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is frequently capable of being adequately diluted through totally topping up the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's pretty uncommon to find a motor vehicle having difficulties due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very rare - not impossible to find. You can get some vehicles that won't stand any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has shown that as many drivers get away with this as those people who don't. Whenever figuring out whether or not to risk it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything more than 6 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Doblo JTD Multijet should as soon as possible be drained out seeing as your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in fifty - truly big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance issues ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the Doblo JTD Multijet? If that's the case, have it removed irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run driving an automobile that is starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will likely end up in more damage being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need reassurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some amount of risk connected to operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and should you observe any of them then stop 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.
