Porsche Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Porsche is a very common problem. And what you have to do about it is determined by a few things. In the event that you want to find out what it is best to do to sort it out then keep reading.
Listed here the main factors to take into consideration whenever deciding on whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put in to the Porsche, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Porsche Carrera GT is most likely roughly 92 litres?
    1. A small amount of Diesel, as little as 4.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Carrera GT will more often than not not be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 4.6 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is very often able to be sufficiently diluted simply by entirely filling the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It's very unusual to come across a car experiencing issues because of less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a few cars that won't stand any quantity of contamination at all.
    2. In between 4.6 and 9.2 litres of Diesel in the Porsche (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as all those who don't. When trying to decide whether or not to chance it and basically top it up remember that it is just like gambling all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 9.2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Carrera GT should right away be removed since your likelihood of driving with that level of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Porsche and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance troubles since putting the wrong fuel in the Carrera GT? If you have, get it emptied regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still driving a car that is currently starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can just be responsible for increasing amounts of damage being done to your fuel system.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    In that case get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of threat connected with running a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you recognise any of them cease driving and get it removed right now.

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.
