Jeep Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Jeep is a fairly typical error. And what you want to do about it is based on an assortment of things. In the event that you want to know what you should do about this then keep on reading.
Right here are the key variables to think about whenever determining whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in the Jeep, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Jeep Compass CRD is most likely approximately 51 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, as little as 2.55 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Compass CRD will in most situations not really be a big problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 2.55 litres (which is close to 5% of the total fuel tank) is usually able to be adequately diluted through completely topping the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's relatively rare to come across a motor vehicle going through difficulties due to lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very infrequently found - not impossible to find. You will discover some vehicles that will not endure any level of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 2.55 and 5.1 litres of Petrol in the Jeep (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has revealed that as many people get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding on whether to chance it and simply fill it up bear in mind that it is much like gambling it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 5.1 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Compass CRD should really as soon as possible be drained seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is probably less than one in fifty - truly big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Jeep and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance concerns as a result of putting the bad fuel in the Compass CRD? In that case, have it emptied regardless of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running an automobile that is now beginning to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination will just result in progressively more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    In that case get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of danger resulting from driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Possible consequences of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you observe any of them stop driving and have it removed 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.
