Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a fairly typical error. And what you should do about it varies according to various things. Assuming you would like to find out what you have to do about this then read on.
Let us discuss the key factors to consider when figuring out whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put into the Peugeot, considering that the fuel capacity of your Peugeot 307 Hdi is probably roughly 60 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, something like 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 307 Hdi will more often than not not really be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount less than 3 litres (which is approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is frequently able to be adequately diluted by means of thoroughly filling up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is relatively uncommon to come across a car suffering from difficulties because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are actually certain motor vehicles that will not stand any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has confirmed that as many people get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are figuring out whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up remember that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel 307 Hdi must straight away be removed seeing that your likelihood of getting away with this amount of contamination is more than likely lower than one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues since putting the bad fuel in your 307 Hdi? If you have, have it removed regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running an automobile that is currently starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will probably typically be responsible for progressively more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    You should get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk in connection with operating a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them cease driving and have it removed asap.

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.
