Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a very common problem. And what you want to do about it depends upon several things. If you would like to know what you have to do to fix it then read on.
Listed here are the most important variables to take into consideration whenever figuring out whether to have your car drained:

  1. How much Petrol did you put in to the Fiat, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Fiat Freemont Multijet is in most cases roughly 78 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, as little as 3.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Freemont Multijet will most of the time not really be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 3.9 litres (which is roughly 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is generally able to be adequately diluted through totally filling up the tank with Diesel.
      It's highly rare to find a car or truck having difficulties due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is unusual - in no way impossible to find. There are actually a number of automobiles that will not endure any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 3.9 and 7.8 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has proven that as many drivers get away with this as those who don't. Any time you're trying to decide whether or not to risk it and just simply fill it up bear in mind that it is just like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 7.8 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Freemont Multijet should really immediately be drained out because your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is very likely less than one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems ever since putting the bad fuel in the Freemont Multijet? If you have, have it removed irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running a car that is currently starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination can likely result in even more harm being caused to your fuel system components.
  3. Do you want security?
    Simply get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of threat associated with operating a Diesel engine on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, etc. These are some of the commonest Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and if you detect any of them then cease driving and have it drained immediately.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

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.
