Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a usual error. And exactly what you want to do about it is dependent upon various factors. In case you want to know what you must do about this then please read on.
Listed here the key factors to think about whenever deciding whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put in the Peugeot, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Peugeot 206 CC Hdi is probably around 47 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.35 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 206 CC Hdi will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 2.35 litres (which is close to 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted through thoroughly topping the tank with the right fuel.
      It's highly rare to come across an automobile suffering from problems with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's unusual - in no way impossible to find. There are actually some vehicles that won't stand any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.35 and 4.7 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our experience demonstrates that as many people get away with it as all those who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether to risk it and just simply top it up remember that it is just like gambling your car on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 4.7 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 206 CC Hdi really should right away be drained because your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in fifty - genuinely huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance problems ever since putting the bad fuel in your 206 CC Hdi? In that case, get it drained no matter the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continually running an automobile that is beginning to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can only lead to more and more harm being done to the fuel system components.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    You should get it emptied. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of threat affiliated with operating a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most common Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you detect any of them stop and have it drained as soon as possible.

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.
