Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a regularly occurring problem. And its solution varies according to a variety of factors. In the event that you would like to find out what you must do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here the most crucial factors to be aware of when deciding on whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put into the Peugeot, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Peugeot 106 D is usually roughly 45 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Petrol, less than 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 106 D will normally not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities less than 2.25 litres (approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is very often able to be completely diluted simply by wholly topping the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is quite unusual to encounter a motor vehicle having issues with lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very rare - not impossible to find. You will discover a number of automobiles that don't endure any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those who don't. Any time you are deciding upon whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up consider that it is the same as gambling it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 106 D ought to right away be drained seeing that your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is very likely below one in fifty - truly long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you seen any performance concerns since putting the wrong fuel in your 106 D? If so, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can just end up in even more damage being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk connected with driving a Diesel engine on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them then cease driving and get it removed immediately.

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.
