Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a very common problem. And its solution is dependent upon a few factors. In case you want to find out what it is best to do about this then keep on reading.
Here are the main factors to to consider whenever making a decision whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put into the Peugeot, considering that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot 307 CC Hdi is most likely around 60 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, something like 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 307 CC Hdi will more often than not not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 3 litres (roughly 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is oftentimes able to be sufficiently diluted simply by completely filling the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's extremely unusual to encounter a car or truck suffering from problems due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very rare - definitely not impossible to find. You can get some cars that will not endure any quantity of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those people who break down. Whenever trying to decide whether or not to chance it and basically top it up remember that it is much like betting all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 6 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 307 CC Hdi should right away be drained seeing that your probability of getting away with that amount of contamination is very likely lower than one in fifty - truly long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance problems after putting the incorrect fuel in the 307 CC Hdi? In that case, have it emptied regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Still running an automobile that is now beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can likely end up in more and more damage being done to your fuel system.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    In that case get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of risk connected to operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Likely outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and the like. These are several of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you recognise any of them then stop and get it drained right now.

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.
