Wrong fuel recovery

We received call from desperate driver that he has put petrol in diesel car London Hayes for Mercedes S Class. As driver explained, he had accidentally taken the wrong pump and put in about 9 litres of unleaded petrol into his Merceded S class Cdi fuel tank. At the beginning, driver calculated that if he will fill up the tank fully, there will be about 70 litres of fuel. He made some calculation and discovered that the contamination would be approximately 13% of unleaded petrol. The main question was if this will damage Mercedes diesel engine? Or he can do this way and continue work.

What we answered to Mercedes driver is that in this case contamination is too high to drive without engine damage and you surely need to do mobile fuel drain.

Basically, if you have put unleaded in petrol in your diesel car, you do not have to consider some solutions or arrange next steps, you just need to remove wrong fuel from the car, clean fuel lines, fill up the car with fresh fuel and continue the road. This is the easiest and most safe way how to deal with this mistake with the least time and money spent.

Do not calculate the percentage of fuel contamination or how old or young the car is, just do the mobile fuel drain and you definitely will save time, money and your nerves.
