B10 Diesel- Vehicle compatability


Recommended Posts

Got this from Shell, still waiting to hear from Toyota;

 

I checked with our technical team, he informed that the car was manufactured since 1995 can be use but some series are not good, its better way to check with your car brand customer service (Toyota call center) to confirm again.

I was told it would cost 2500 baht to convert my 2011 Dmax 

After much contradictory advice I found a good dealer who looked up directives from Isuzu HO. The conversion you reference for around that price would enable my 2015 Dmax to run on B20 which is about 3 baht litre cheaper.

MG told me that my 2019 Extender is okay to run on B10, but suggest that I put in one tank of Premium every 4-5 tanks of B10.

You would hope so on a 1 year old car! 🙂

Any links for the Ford Ranger?  Mines 11 years old, and only done 111K.

 

Thanks for any assistance. 🙂

I have one of the first ones, bought in dec1999 (in it's 21st year). I used B20 and B10, around 5th tanks now. No problems. and actually, cold start is better. Driving= the same

 

besides all the recommendations: Gasohol is known to dry out rubber (the ethanol part, that is) and therefore You can get leaks if you use an old car with natural rubber hoses. Diesel, on the otherhand, is a lot less problematic. No alcohol. I do not see what could be the problem. I assume the diesel at pumps are particle free, so filters are not clogged.

I have a 2011 Ford Ranger which has the 2.5 liter common rail engine with turbo. My local Ford dealer where I bought this truck told me not to use biodiesel in any of there truck models older than 2017. But PPT keeps telling me that I can use either B7 or B10. Where can I get the the definative answer from Ford Company because it seems that each Ford dealer has a different opinion. We are now burning B7 because here in Chiang Khan there no longer diesel which is now B10. I don't mind filling with premium once every 3 or 4 tanks but for my trips to Phuket the fuel cost with Premium makes the trip to Phuket about 30% higher cost. Burning B10 would be great if Ford would agree!

I think the chances of any company making a statement to the fact its OK is remote, if something did happen to the car it could come back and bite them in the a$s.

My Ford dealer is saying that all their vehicles 2017 and newer are designed to burn B10. PTT is saying from 2011. There must be someone at Ford that can clarify this discrepancy. But now the issue is B7 which I can use in my area. I am still waiting for an answer for B7.

Have a look here: https://www.doeb.go.th/data/bio/totalB10update.pdf

 

This list is purportedly made by the Department of Energy together with manufacturer's input.

 

I found in the list this mode:

FORD Ranger P4AT EURO3 TDCi (Turbo Diesel Direct Injection) 2011-2013 . It's marked as OK for B10 and not ok for B20.

 

Btw, there is no 100% diesel anymore in Thailand, lowest Bio ratio is 7% (that includes Premium which are B7 + additives).
