Which Diesel Fuel

Recommended Posts

I have a bog standard 2012 Vigo, 190,000 km on the clock. D4D engine.

Asked at the PTT station if I can use B10 or B20............oh yes yes, no problem. Asked at Toyota.......no, no, no ! 

Can I , or can I not use B10 or 20 anyone please.

To be honest I dunno but I would say B10 would be OK.

I have the latest Isuzu 1.9 diesel engine which they say can take B20 but may need adjustments.

I have been using B10 since it came out and the truck runs just fine the same but just a little difference in kilos to litre it seems but haven't been doing the kind of long haul trips like I had been doing before.

I mean to say before using diesel B7 and now B10 can't be that different.

Its a diesel it will survive most anything except for petrol 😋😁

There was a trick in winter in UK when I use to put about half a gallon of petrol in my companies VW diesel trucks to mix with the diesel in the tank to stop the fuel lines and pump from freezing up.

Seems Toyota is not sure either or don't want to say.. 😉

 2) For Hilux VIGO and Fortuner vehicles with the production years from 2011-2015, if there is the need for the consistent use of B20 Biodiesel in the areas with regular temperatures of lower than 16 degrees Celsius, please seek prior advice from Toyota service centers. 

 

My own personal interpretation of this legalese is that B20 is not a good idea for your Vigo.

I am the OP and still have no idea whether I can use B10 or B20.

On another slightly off-topic question, why did the Thais call diesel with alcohol B20 and not D20. Too logical I guess

It seems your Vigo will be OK, just keep an eye on the dash yellow fuel filter light...

If in doubt don't use it. Regular diesel is cheap enough now.

And petrol with alcohol/bio?   Biogas so G10/20 or P10/20. Just joking.
