Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a well-known error. And what you want to do about it is determined by a variety of things. If perhaps you want to find out what it is advisable to do about it then keep on reading.
Here are the most important variables to consider when deciding on whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put in the Fiat, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Fiat Marea Weekend JTD is most likely approximately 63 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, less than 3.15 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Marea Weekend JTD will typically not really be a huge problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 3.15 litres (which is about 5% of the fuel tank) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted simply by thoroughly filling up the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is rather unusual to come across an automobile going through difficulties because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to find. You can get a number of motor vehicles that don't stand any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many people get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are figuring out whether to chance it and just simply top it up recognise that it is very much like wagering your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 6.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Marea Weekend JTD really should straightaway be drained out because your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems after putting the wrong fuel in the Marea Weekend JTD? If that's the case, get it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely cause progressively more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you want security?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably some extent of danger connected with running a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you detect any of them then cease driving and get it drained asap.

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.
