B10 Diesel- Vehicle compatability


Recommended Posts

Dumb question time, local garage just switched from B7 to B10. I got a 15 year old Toyota Tiger Hilux, is B10 OK or do I need any modifications?

Slight adjustment maybe needed but usually an ECU will adjust fueling for the motor.

Our Isuzu is nearly 3 years old runs on B10 OK didn't adjustment.

Can you look up some information on the official Toyota website. At 15 years old , id say you cant use without some fuel system modifications. The cost of this wont deem the car scrap , but id try using Shell V-Power only , with a yearly dose of fuel system cleaner and a fuel filter change. Many vehicles are going to face the same problems with Palm oil being added to diesel.

Several models of Tiger are covered here: https://www.doeb.go.th/2017/WebB10/IndexB10.html

I googled a couple of fuel producers, PTT and Esso, both said it was OK. Then I popped into Toyota this morning they said its not OK.

Confusing. Any ideas when regular diesel is being discontinued?

Is your model not covered in the link I sent? I would either go with the info there or check with headoffice / official publication rather than a local dealer.

 

My car won't take B10 officially although at forums I see people reporting no issues after using it exclusively for 50K miles up. I have no idea when B7 will be phased out but when it does I will switch to 100% Premium Diesel (for now I alternate it with B7). In any case I see better mileage and better performance with the premium (especially from Esso) so I'm OK with that.

It is covered in the link thanks, just confused at Toyota this morning who said no. Suppose they are covering their a$s.  I had a look around this morning and still see places selling B7 so will switch stations until that dries up too. After that, similar to you,  I will use B10 and flush through with premium every few tanks. If fuel efficiency it is increased, then maybe it will offset the cost a little.

 

Still a lot of cars out there that are 'incompatible' , many owned by the poorer. Cant see them buying Premium due to the cost. It will be down to the producers to ensure it does work I guess.
