Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a well-known mistake to make. And what you should do about it is determined by various things. If you want to know what you ought to do about this then read on.
Right here are the most important variables to take into account whenever making a decision whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in the Peugeot, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Peugeot 2008 e-HDi 92 is probably approximately 50 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, as little as 2.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 2008 e-HDi 92 will normally not be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 2.5 litres (almost 5% of the whole fuel tank) is sometimes able to be completely diluted by means of wholly filling up the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's highly unusual to find a car or truck having issues with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it's infrequent - not impossible to find. You can get a few automobiles that won't stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 2.5 and 5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever figuring out whether or not to chance it and simply top it up remember that it is exactly like betting all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 2008 e-HDi 92 ought to right away be drained seeing that your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is very likely below one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance issues as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the 2008 e-HDi 92? In that case, have it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running a car that is beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can just lead to increasing amounts of harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of danger resulting from operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible implications of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the commonest Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them cease driving and have it removed asap.

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.
