Ferrari Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari is a usual problem. And what you have to do about it depends on a few factors. In case you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here the most important factors to be aware of when deciding whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Ferrari, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Ferrari Enzo Ferrari is normally about 110 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, something like 5.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Enzo Ferrari will generally not really be a big problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 5.5 litres (which is close to 5% of the fuel tank) is very often capable of being adequately diluted by totally topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is very rare to come across a vehicle suffering from difficulties because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's uncommon - definitely not impossible to find. You can get a few automobiles that will not stand any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 5.5 and 11 litres of Diesel in the Ferrari (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with this as those people who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether to chance it and basically top it up remember that it is the same as gambling it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 11 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Enzo Ferrari should as soon as possible be drained since your probability of driving with this level of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance difficulties ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your Enzo Ferrari? If so, get it drained irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continually running a car that is starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can just result in increasing amounts of harm being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    You should get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always a certain level of risk resulting from running a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible consequences of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and in the event that you recognise 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.
