Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a fairly typical problem. And its remedy hinges on several factors. Assuming you want to find out what to do about this then read on.
Listed below are the key factors to think about when choosing whether to have it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in the Peugeot, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Peugeot 207 CC Hdi is normally roughly 50 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Petrol, something like 2.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 207 CC Hdi will normally not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities less than 2.5 litres (5% of the fuel tank) is often capable of being adequately diluted simply by entirely filling the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is pretty rare to come across a vehicle going through problems due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very infrequent - in no way impossible to encounter. You will discover a few automobiles that will not endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 2.5 and 5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has shown us that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. When you are figuring out whether to chance it and basically top it up consider that it is the same thing as wagering all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything above 5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 207 CC Hdi must straightaway be drained out since your probability of getting away with that level of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you noted any performance problems as a result of putting the wrong fuel in your 207 CC Hdi? If so, have it removed irrespective of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination can definitely bring about increasing amounts of damage being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    In that case get it drained. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk linked with running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you detect any of them cease driving 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.
