Ferrari Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari is a common problem. And exactly what you need to do about it varies according to a few things. In the event that you would like to find out what you must do to fix it then please read on.
Right here are the key factors to take into account whenever making a decision whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Ferrari, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Ferrari F512 M is in most cases roughly 100 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol F512 M will in most situations not really be a huge problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 5 litres (roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is oftentimes able to be adequately diluted by means of completely topping up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's rather uncommon to encounter a motor vehicle experiencing difficulties due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is very infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are a few vehicles that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Ferrari (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our working experience demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those people who don't. When deciding whether or not to risk it and just top it up consider that it is exactly like betting everything on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything more than 10 litres of Diesel in a Petrol F512 M ought to straight away be drained out because your probability of driving with this amount of contamination is in all likelihood below one in fifty - truly huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Ferrari and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance problems after putting the bad fuel in your F512 M? If so, have it drained irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination can typically result in even more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of danger in connection with driving a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them stop and get it removed immediately.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
