Lamborghini Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini is a regularly occurring mistake to make. And its solution is dependent upon a number of factors. If perhaps you want to know what to do about this then keep reading.
Listed here the most crucial factors to take into account whenever choosing whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Lamborghini, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Lamborghini Murcielago is usually approximately 100 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, something like 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Murcielago will typically not really be a major problem. Experience has taught us that an amount less than 5 litres (roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted through wholly filling the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's quite uncommon to come across a car or truck going through problems because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very infrequent - in no way impossible to find. You will discover some vehicles that won't endure any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Lamborghini (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has shown that as many motorists get away with it as all those who don't. When figuring out whether to risk it and just top it up remember that it is just like gambling your car on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 10 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Murcielago ought to immediately be drained seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is very likely lower than one in 50 - definitely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Lamborghini and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance difficulties since putting the wrong fuel in the Murcielago? If you have, get it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will probably typically bring about increasing amounts of harm being done to your fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    In that case get it emptied. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is invariably some extent of risk associated with operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving a car on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you recognise any of them then stop and have it removed as soon as possible.

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.
