Did You Put Gas in a Diesel Dodge ProMaster?
A common issue we see with diesel-powered vehicles is drivers accidentally refueling with gasoline. It’s important to understand that if this happens, it can cause significant damage to your fuel system and engine. However, with prompt attention, our skilled team can successfully resolve the issue and prevent further damage–and the need for a complete engine replacement.
Diesel and gasoline have different ignition characteristics; gas needs a spark to ignite, while diesel relies on high compression and temperature to ignite. When mixed, the combustion process becomes less efficient and can lead to a variety of issues including:
- Engine pinging and knocking
- Clogged fuel filters and restricted fuel flow
- Reduced engine performance
- Increased emissions
- Starting issues
- Fuel system failure
- Catastrophic engine damage
If you put gas in your diesel, avoid starting your engine. Call us for a tow, and we’ll bring it to the shop to drain the fuel, replace the filters, and inspect the fuel system. If you’ve already started your engine, shut it off as soon as it’s safe to do so and give us a call. The sooner we see your vehicle, the more likely we can help you prevent major repairs.
