Maserati Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a well-known mistake to make. And its remedy is based on a variety of things. If you want to find out what it is best to do about this then keep reading.
Listed here are the most important factors to take into account whenever deciding whether to get the car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in the Maserati, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Maserati Quattroporte is usually roughly 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Quattroporte will typically not really be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 4 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of totally topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It is rather rare to come across a vehicle having problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's infrequently found - not impossible to find. There are a number of vehicles that won't stand any degree of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has revealed that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. Whenever you are figuring out whether to risk it and just top it up remember that it is exactly like wagering all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Quattroporte must straightaway be removed as your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in fifty - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you noted any performance difficulties ever since putting the bad fuel in the Quattroporte? If you have, have it drained no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will only be responsible for increasing amounts of damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Simply get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of risk connected with running a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable consequences of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them stop driving and have it removed immediately.

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.
