Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a very common mistake to make. And its solution depends on several different factors. In the event that you would like to find out what it is best to do about this then keep on reading.
Listed here are the most crucial variables to keep in mind when figuring out whether to have the car drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put into the Peugeot, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Peugeot 1007 Hdi is normally about 40 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, something like 2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 1007 Hdi will typically not really be a major problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 2 litres (approximately 5% of the whole fuel tank) is often capable of being adequately diluted by means of completely filling the tank with Diesel.
      It is rather uncommon to encounter an automobile going through problems with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very infrequently found - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are a few cars that won't stand any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 2 and 4 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our experience has shown that as many drivers get away with it as those who break down. When you are trying to decide whether to chance it and basically fill it up recognise that it is the same thing as gambling your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 4 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 1007 Hdi really should right away be drained out since your likelihood of driving with this quantity of contamination is probably below one in fifty - seriously big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems ever since putting the bad fuel in the 1007 Hdi? In that case, get it drained no matter the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running a motor vehicle that is already beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination will probably only lead to increasing amounts of harm being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    You should get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of danger affiliated with running a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Likely results of driving a car on the incorrect fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them stop 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.
