Peugeot Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot is a regular error. And exactly what you need to do about it hinges on a few factors. Assuming you would like to know what you should do about this then please read on.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to take into account when figuring out whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in to the Peugeot, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Peugeot Partner Hdi is most likely roughly 60 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, less than 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Partner Hdi will typically not really be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3 litres (which is 5% of the total fuel tank volume) is often capable of being adequately diluted by means of entirely filling the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's relatively unusual to find an automobile having issues with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. There are some cars that don't stand any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Peugeot (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever deciding on whether or not to chance it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is much like wagering your car on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Partner Hdi must immediately be drained out seeing as your probability of driving with that quantity of contamination is more than likely less than one in fifty - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Peugeot and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties after putting the bad fuel in your Partner Hdi? In that case, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run running a vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination can likely bring about even more harm affecting your fuel system.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger caused by driving a Diesel vehicle on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and in the event that you detect any of them stop and get it drained immediately.

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.
