Maserati Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Maserati is a usual mistake to make. And what you have to do about it is determined by a few things. In the event that you would like to find out what you ought to do about this then please read on.
Let us discuss the most crucial variables to take into consideration whenever making a decision whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What level of Diesel did you put into the Maserati, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Maserati Spyder GT is usually about 88 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, something like 4.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Spyder GT will more often than not not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4.4 litres (which is roughly 5% of the fuel tank) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted simply by thoroughly topping the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is quite uncommon to encounter a vehicle having difficulties due to lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very rare - certainly not impossible to find. There are actually a number of automobiles that won't stand any level of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 4.4 and 8.8 litres of Diesel in the Maserati (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has proven that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. Any time you're deciding on whether to risk it and basically top it up remember that it is much like betting everything on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 8.8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Spyder GT must straightaway be removed seeing that your probability of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is more than likely lower than one in fifty - definitely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Maserati and drove it: Have you noted any performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in the Spyder GT? If so, have it emptied regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is currently starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will only be responsible for more harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of risk in connection with running a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible results of driving on the incorrect fuel include the engine not starting, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them then stop and have it removed right away.

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.
