Lamborghini Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini is a fairly typical problem. And its remedy hinges on an assortment of factors. In case you want to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed below are the main variables to to consider when determining whether to get the car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Lamborghini, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Lamborghini Gallardo is normally approximately 90 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, as little as 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Gallardo will normally not really be a big problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 4.5 litres (about 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted simply by completely topping the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's highly rare to encounter a motor vehicle suffering from issues due to below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is unusual - definitely not impossible to find. You will discover some vehicles that don't stand any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Lamborghini (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you're deciding whether or not to chance it and basically fill it up recognise that it is exactly like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 9 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Gallardo must straight away be drained seeing that your likelihood of getting away with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in fifty - extremely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini and drove it: Have you observed any performance problems ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Gallardo? If so, get it emptied irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still running a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can only end up in more damage being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Then get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of risk resulting from running a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible implications of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are some of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you notice any of them stop and have it drained 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.
