Porsche Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Porsche is a common mistake. And its remedy is determined by various things. Assuming you want to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Listed here the main variables to to consider whenever deciding whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in to the Porsche, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Porsche 911 GT1 is most likely around 73 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, less than 3.65 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 911 GT1 will in most situations not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that anything under 3.65 litres (which is roughly 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is frequently capable of being adequately diluted through entirely topping up the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's relatively rare to find an automobile going through difficulties with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequent - not impossible to find. You can get certain cars that don't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3.65 and 7.3 litres of Diesel in the Porsche (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with this as those people who break down. When deciding whether or not to risk it and just fill it up consider that it is much like wagering it all on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 7.3 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 911 GT1 ought to straight away be removed seeing as your likelihood of getting away with that amount of contamination is probably below one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Porsche and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance concerns as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the 911 GT1? If so, have it drained no matter the amount of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is now beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can definitely bring about increasing amounts of harm affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Do you want security?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of threat in connection with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are a few of the most typical Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you detect any of them stop driving 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.
