Fiat Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Fiat is a fairly typical error. And what you should do about it depends on a number of factors. Assuming you would like to find out what you must do to sort it out then please read on.
Right here are the most important variables to be aware of when deciding whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put in to the Fiat, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Fiat Stilo Multi Wagon Multijet is normally roughly 58 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, as little as 2.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Stilo Multi Wagon Multijet will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 2.9 litres (close to 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted by wholly topping up the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is rather uncommon to come across a car or truck having problems due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequently found - not impossible to find. There are some automobiles that will not stand any amount of contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.9 and 5.8 litres of Petrol in the Fiat (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever you are deciding upon whether or not to chance it and just simply fill it up consider that it is much like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything over 5.8 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Stilo Multi Wagon Multijet should really promptly be removed seeing as your probability of getting away with this quantity of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in fifty - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Fiat and drove it: Have you noted any performance concerns ever since putting the bad fuel in your Stilo Multi Wagon Multijet? If so, get it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continually driving a car that is beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination can typically be responsible for even more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of risk caused by running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible consequences of driving a car on the incorrect fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, etc. These are a few of the most common Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and if you recognise any of them then cease driving and have it drained as soon as possible.

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.
