Jeep Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Jeep is a very common problem. And its remedy hinges on a variety of things. In the event that you would like to find out what you need to do to sort it out then stay with me.
Listed here are the key factors to take into consideration when choosing whether or not to have it drained:

  1. How much Petrol did you put into the Jeep, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Jeep Commander CRD is normally around 78 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, something like 3.9 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Commander CRD will more often than not not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 3.9 litres (which is 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is often able to be completely diluted by entirely topping the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's very rare to come across a motor vehicle going through difficulties because of less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it is very uncommon - not impossible to find. There are a number of cars that will not endure any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.9 and 7.8 litres of Petrol in the Jeep (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise demonstrates that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. Whenever trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just top it up consider that it is the same as wagering everything on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 7.8 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Commander CRD must immediately be drained since your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is very likely below one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Jeep and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Commander CRD? In that case, have it drained regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run driving a motor vehicle that is already starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can typically end up in more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of threat caused by running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most typical Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you observe any of them cease driving and have it removed right away.

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.
