Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a regularly occurring problem. And its remedy is dependent upon a few factors. In case you would like to know what you ought to do to sort it out then continue reading.
These are the most important variables to take into account when deciding on whether to have your car drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in the Peugeot, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot 205 Forever D is probably approximately 50 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 205 Forever D will in most situations not really be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount less than 2.5 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is frequently able to be adequately diluted by totally filling the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty unusual to encounter a vehicle experiencing problems with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequent - not impossible to find. There are actually a number of automobiles that won't endure any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.5 and 5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has proven that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. When you are trying to decide whether to risk it and just top it up bear in mind that it is the same as betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything more than 5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 205 Forever D ought to right away be drained out as your probability of getting away with that amount of contamination is certainly lower than one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems since putting the incorrect fuel in the 205 Forever D? In that case, have it removed irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a vehicle that is already beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will definitely end up in increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of threat in connection with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then stop and have it drained 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.
