Peugeot Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a usual problem. And its remedy varies according to an assortment of things. In case you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then keep reading.
Listed here are the main factors to be aware of when deciding whether to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Peugeot, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Peugeot 4007 HDi is probably roughly 60 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, as little as 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 4007 HDi will usually not really be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities less than 3 litres (which is approximately 5% of the overall fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted by wholly filling the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is pretty unusual to come across a motor vehicle experiencing issues with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it is uncommon - in no way impossible to find. You will discover a number of motor vehicles that won't stand any level of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as those who break down. When trying to decide whether or not to chance it and just top it up consider that it is the same thing as gambling it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything above 6 litres of Petrol in a Diesel 4007 HDi should really immediately be drained out seeing that your probability of getting away with this level of contamination is more than likely below one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance difficulties since putting the wrong fuel in the 4007 HDi? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the amount of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will likely cause more and more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    You should get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some amount of danger connected with driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Probable results of driving on the incorrect fuel include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them then cease driving and have it removed asap.

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.
