Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a regularly occurring error. And its solution depends upon an assortment of factors. In the event that you would like to find out what it is best to do about it then stay with me.
Right here are the main variables to be aware of whenever choosing whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put in the Peugeot, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Peugeot Bipper Hdi is probably around 45 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, less than 2.25 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Bipper Hdi will typically not really be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 2.25 litres (which is close to 5% of the total fuel tank volume) is very often capable of being completely diluted by means of wholly topping the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It is relatively unusual to come across a vehicle having issues due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very infrequently found - in no way impossible to find. You will discover a few cars that will not endure any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.25 and 4.5 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has proven that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you are figuring out whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up consider that it is very much like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 4.5 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Bipper Hdi should promptly be drained out as your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - really long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance problems ever since putting the bad fuel in your Bipper Hdi? If you have, have it removed regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive driving a vehicle that is starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will only result in progressively more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for reassurance?
    Then simply just get it drained. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some extent of risk connected with driving a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and if you observe any of them then stop and have it drained 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.
