Maserati Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a very common problem. And what you should do about it is based on a number of things. If you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then please read on.
These are the most important factors to to consider when choosing whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Maserati, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Maserati 3200 GT is normally about 90 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, something like 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 3200 GT will in most cases not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 4.5 litres (roughly 5% of the fuel tank) is oftentimes able to be adequately diluted through thoroughly topping the tank with Petrol.
      It is relatively uncommon to find a car going through difficulties because of below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it's infrequent - not impossible to encounter. There are a number of motor vehicles that will not stand any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has confirmed that as many drivers get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you're deciding whether or not to chance it and just simply fill it up remember that it is exactly like wagering everything on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything more than 9 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 3200 GT really should immediately be removed seeing that your probability of driving with this quantity of contamination is more than likely below one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance concerns ever since putting the wrong fuel in the 3200 GT? If so, have it removed regardless of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive driving a motor vehicle that is starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will probably likely end up in even more damage being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for peace of mind?
    Simply get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably a certain level of threat associated with operating a Petrol engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and the like. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop and get it drained immediately.

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.
