Fiat Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a usual mistake. And what you need to do about it depends on a number of things. If perhaps you want to know what to do about this then read on.
Right here are the key variables to to consider whenever deciding on whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put into the Fiat, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Fiat Marea Weekend JTD 110 is probably about 63 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, less than 3.15 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Marea Weekend JTD 110 will typically not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 3.15 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank) is frequently capable of being sufficiently diluted by thoroughly filling up the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is pretty rare to encounter a motor vehicle having problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very infrequent - certainly not impossible to find. You can get a few motor vehicles that don't stand any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever you are deciding whether to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is the same as betting your car on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything above 6.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Marea Weekend JTD 110 really should straight away be drained out seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably lower than one in 50 - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you spotted any performance concerns ever since putting the bad fuel in your Marea Weekend JTD 110? If you have, have it emptied regardless of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running a motor vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can just cause progressively more damage being caused to your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk connected to driving a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the engine not starting, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and if you detect any of them stop driving and get it drained 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.
