Ferrari Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari is a fairly typical error. And its solution is based on various things. In the event that you want to know what you need to do about this then keep on reading.
Let us discuss the main factors to consider when determining whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put into the Ferrari, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Ferrari F 512 TR is most likely roughly 100 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, less than 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol F 512 TR will in most situations not really be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount less than 5 litres (5% of the total fuel tank volume) is often able to be sufficiently diluted by means of thoroughly topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is rather unusual to come across an automobile going through difficulties because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very unusual - in no way impossible to encounter. There are a number of motor vehicles that don't stand any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Ferrari (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has proven that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. When you are deciding upon whether or not to chance it and just top it up consider that it is exactly like gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 10 litres of Diesel in a Petrol F 512 TR must promptly be drained out seeing that your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is certainly below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari and drove it: Have you observed any performance concerns as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the F 512 TR? In that case, have it emptied irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually running an automobile that is now beginning to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can likely cause even more harm being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    Then get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of threat resulting from operating a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you notice any of them cease driving and have it removed right now.

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.
