Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a regularly occurring mistake to make. And what you want to do about it is based on an assortment of factors. In the event that you want to find out what it is advisable to do about it then please read on.
These are the key factors to consider when making a decision whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol did you put in the Peugeot, considering that the fuel capacity of the Peugeot 207 Hdi is usually about 50 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Petrol, something like 2.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 207 Hdi will in most situations not be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities less than 2.5 litres (5% of the entire fuel tank) is quite often able to be sufficiently diluted simply by totally filling the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's rather unusual to come across a vehicle having problems with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to find. You will discover some vehicles that won't stand any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.5 and 5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has confirmed that as many drivers get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding on whether to risk it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is much like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything more than 5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 207 Hdi ought to straightaway be removed as your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in fifty - truly big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance issues ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your 207 Hdi? In that case, get it removed regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a car that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will definitely bring about increasing amounts of harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    In that case get it emptied. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of risk affiliated with running a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Possible consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you observe any of them stop and have it drained right away.

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.
