Bugatti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Bugatti is a usual mistake. And its remedy is based on a number of things. If perhaps you would like to know what it is advisable to do to fix it then please read on.
Listed below are the key variables to consider when choosing whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in the Bugatti, considering that the fuel capacity of the Bugatti EB 112 is normally about 120 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol EB 112 will in most situations not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 6 litres (approximately 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is very often able to be adequately diluted by means of entirely filling the tank with Petrol.
      It is quite unusual to find an automobile experiencing problems with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. You will discover certain cars that will not stand any level of contamination at all.
    2. In between 6 and 12 litres of Diesel in the Bugatti (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. Whenever deciding on whether or not to risk it and simply top it up remember that it is exactly like wagering your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 12 litres of Diesel in your Petrol EB 112 must promptly be removed because your likelihood of driving with that level of contamination is certainly less than one in 50 - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Bugatti and drove it: Have you seen any performance concerns as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in your EB 112? If that's the case, have it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run driving a vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely lead to progressively more harm being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    You should get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk affiliated with driving a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you detect any of them then stop and have it removed asap.

Diesel in Petrol Questions

When someone has put Diesel in a Petrol car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Diesel in a Petrol 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 Petrol car on Diesel 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 Diesel can I get away with in a Petrol 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 Petrol 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.
