Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a usual mistake to make. And its remedy will depend on an assortment of factors. In the event that you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then stay with me.
Let us discuss the most crucial factors to take into consideration whenever determining whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in to the Fiat, considering that the fuel tank capacity of your Fiat Multipla JTD Multijet is in most cases about 63 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, something like 3.15 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Multipla JTD Multijet will most of the time not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 3.15 litres (5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is in many instances capable of being completely diluted by completely topping up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is relatively unusual to come across a motor vehicle suffering from issues with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. There are a few automobiles that don't stand any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has proven that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. When figuring out whether to chance it and just top it up recognise that it is the same thing as wagering everything on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 6.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Multipla JTD Multijet must immediately be removed as your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is probably below one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you observed any performance troubles ever since putting the bad fuel in the Multipla JTD Multijet? If that's the case, get it emptied irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is now beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably typically lead to increasing amounts of harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of danger caused by driving a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with Petrol. Probable results of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, etc. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop and have it drained as soon as possible.

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.
