Maserati Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a very common mistake to make. And its solution varies according to various factors. In case you would like to know what you need to do about it then please read on.
Right here are the most important variables to take into account whenever deciding whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in to the Maserati, considering that the fuel capacity of your Maserati Grandsport is most likely roughly 88 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 4.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grandsport will generally not really be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 4.4 litres (5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be adequately diluted by entirely filling the tank with the right fuel.
      It's highly uncommon to find a motor vehicle suffering from issues because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it's rare - definitely not impossible to encounter. You will discover some cars that don't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 4.4 and 8.8 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our experience has revealed that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever you are figuring out whether to chance it and just fill it up consider that it is much like betting it all on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 8.8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grandsport must straightaway be removed as your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - really long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you noted any kind of performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in the Grandsport? If you have, get it removed regardless of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run running an automobile that is beginning to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably just bring about progressively more harm affecting your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for reassurance?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of danger connected with running a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely consequences of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and should you notice any of them then stop and have 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.
