Maserati Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a very common error. And its solution will depend on several different things. If you would like to know what it is advisable to do to fix it then keep reading.
Listed below are the most important factors to take into account whenever determining whether to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Maserati, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Maserati GranCabrio is in most cases approximately 75 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 3.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GranCabrio will more often than not not be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities less than 3.75 litres (close to 5% of the fuel tank) is generally able to be completely diluted simply by entirely topping up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is relatively rare to encounter a car or truck experiencing difficulties due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very uncommon - not impossible to encounter. There are some cars that won't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise has shown us that as many people get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether or not to risk it and simply top it up recognise that it is much like wagering everything on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 7.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GranCabrio should really promptly be removed seeing that your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is probably below one in 50 - seriously big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance problems after putting the incorrect fuel in your GranCabrio? If so, have it removed irrespective of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive driving a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the effect of fuel contamination can only cause progressively more damage affecting your fuel system.
  3. Would you like security?
    In that case get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of danger linked with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, etc. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you observe any of them then cease driving and get it drained as soon as possible.

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.
