Lamborghini Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini is a usual problem. And its solution depends upon a few things. If perhaps you want to know what it is best to do about this then please read on.
These are the key factors to consider whenever determining whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Lamborghini, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Lamborghini Diablo GT is usually approximately 100 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, less than 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Diablo GT will usually not really be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 5 litres (about 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is sometimes able to be completely diluted simply by wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's highly rare to come across a car or truck suffering from problems with less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is very uncommon - not impossible to encounter. You will discover a number of automobiles that won't stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Lamborghini (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. When you are deciding on whether to chance it and just simply fill it up recognise that it is just like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 10 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Diablo GT must right away be drained seeing as your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is probably below one in fifty - genuinely huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini and drove it: Have you detected any performance concerns after putting the bad fuel in your Diablo GT? If you have, get it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can typically be responsible for more harm being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Then simply just get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is invariably some degree of threat associated with driving a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible results of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most typical Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you observe any of them cease driving and get it removed right away.

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.
