Fiat Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a common error. And exactly what you should do about it depends on a number of things. If perhaps you want to know what you have to do to fix it then keep reading.
Right here are the key variables to consider whenever deciding whether to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Fiat, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Fiat Qubo Multijet is in most cases approximately 45 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, as little as 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Qubo Multijet will normally not really be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 2.25 litres (which is about 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is quite often capable of being sufficiently diluted by thoroughly filling the tank with the right fuel.
      It is very uncommon to come across a vehicle having difficulties with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's rare - in no way impossible to encounter. You can get a number of automobiles that don't stand any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. When you are figuring out whether or not to risk it and just fill it up recognise that it is the same as gambling your car on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Qubo Multijet should straightaway be removed because your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your Qubo Multijet? If you have, get it removed irrespective of the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can definitely be responsible for more and more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need reassurance?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk caused by running a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you recognise any of them cease driving and get it drained right away.

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.
