What Happens If You Put DIESEL in a Lamborghini? (Don’t Try This!)

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

If you’ve ever been traveling and needed to fill your car up with fuel, you might have noticed that there is a gasoline and diesel pump. While the diesel pump’s tip is larger in diameter than your gas tank will allow for, it really leads you to wonder what would happen if you put diesel fuel in your gasoline powered car. Would it continue to run as normal or would it have a hard time processing the new source of fuel? Well, this time, we check out someone who had just that question and decided that they would lay out their thoughts on the matter and the science behind it.

If you’ve followed the Vehicle Virgins YouTube channel, you know that the host drives around in a bright green Lamborghini Huracan that really demands attention. In this one, the owner wonders what would happen when pulling up to the gas pump, if he put diesel fuel in it? Would it just cause the car to run poorly? Would the car run at all? Perhaps doing this would be the formula to execute if you want a catastrophic engine failure to unfold in your engine bay. I guess that there’s only one way to find out!

Check out the video down below that shows off what exactly happens if you put diesel fuel in your gasoline powered engine. Do you think that it’s going to cause all sorts of destruction or do you think that they will simply conk out and cease to make power? It’s really an interesting topic to approach and, with videos like this, you can see results of how something of the sort this would pan out should you somehow figure out a way to accidentally use the wrong kind of fuel in your ride.
