Maserati Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a regularly occurring mistake to make. And exactly what you want to do about it hinges on a few factors. If you would like to know what you ought to do to fix it then read on.
Right here are the most important factors to to consider when deciding on whether or not to get it drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in the Maserati, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of the Maserati GranTurismo is in most cases approximately 90 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, something like 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GranTurismo will in most situations not really be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that quantities less than 4.5 litres (which is almost 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is quite often able to be adequately diluted simply by wholly topping the tank with Petrol.
      It's quite rare to find a vehicle suffering from difficulties with under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's uncommon - not impossible to find. There are actually a number of vehicles that don't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are figuring out whether to chance it and just top it up bear in mind that it is very much like gambling all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 9 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GranTurismo really should immediately be removed seeing as your likelihood of driving with this amount of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - really big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance problems ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your GranTurismo? If so, get it emptied no matter the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving an automobile that is now starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely lead to even more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some degree of threat resulting from operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you recognise any of them stop and have it removed right now.

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.
