Lamborghini Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini is a usual problem. And its solution varies according to a few things. If you would like to find out what it is advisable to do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here the main factors to keep in mind when figuring out whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Lamborghini, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is in most cases around 90 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Aventador LP 700-4 will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4.5 litres (which is about 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is oftentimes capable of being adequately diluted by thoroughly filling the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's quite rare to encounter a car going through issues due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is unusual - not impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of automobiles that don't stand any quantity of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Lamborghini (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has revealed that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. Any time you're trying to decide whether or not to chance it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is very much like betting everything on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 9 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Aventador LP 700-4 ought to straightaway be removed since your probability of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is very likely below one in fifty - truly huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties as a result of putting the bad fuel in the Aventador LP 700-4? If so, get it emptied regardless of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is now starting to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can typically cause increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for peace of mind?
    In that case get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of risk resulting from driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them stop driving and get 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.
