Is Diesel being rebranded at PTT stations?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I was given this paper. It seems like a regular Diesel is being rebranded as Diesel B7. And Diesel B10 as Diesel? Is that it? That's confusing.

 

I have Toyota Hilux and I was always buying Diesel, so it means I will have to switch to Diesel B7 now?

Me no understand... Old Diesel engines now need B7 or B7 premium ? What about all the old and very old Diesel engines used for boats, once they will stop selling B7 ? World has gone totally insane now

I have been using the B10 - not sure why - that was what there was... and it seemed a good bit cheaper... fill up for 960 baht... performance still seems about the same... [50+ mg of viagra and I am f

I have been using B 20 from PT. It is now gone and replaced with B 10. I also noticed that PTT has also done away with B 20, at least in the Ubon area. My truck is rated B 20 is ok to use. Asked Toyot

I for 1 will not be using PTT anymore. I put a post it the other week about the drop in power when using PTT Premium Ver Shell V power. Now I see that their premium is B7 Premium what's going on??? Question Have they changed the price.

 i am running b10 in my 2.4 triton, will be confusing unless all companies change to the same rebranded names, if so that means will have to ask for diesel,

I just found a link to the unmentionable newspaper from June 2019, that says all companies rebranding b10 as diesel from 22nd November when B7 will be phased out

Asked Toyota about using B 10 and was told don't do it. Can or will cause engine problems. It could void the warranty. He said use B 20. He didn't seem to realize that B 20 is disappearing.

 

This is from the European Automobile Manufactures Association. Toyota Motor Corporation: Apart from vehicles fitted with a specific ‘B10’ fuel identifier, all models from brands Toyota and Lexus are not compatible.

When I got my new Tuna from Toyota. They gave me a chitty (That they were paying for) for a full tank of fuel, told me to put in Premium diesel. Why would they tell me to put premium in if they didn't think the car would run better. Now I'm left with Buddha knows what??? Not put any fuel in for some time, then it was PTT premium. Think it'll have to be Shell V power. That's if they haven't changed that who knows.

Extremely confusing and exactly against the flow.

Lost in translation or totally clueless Toyota staff?

The less "bio" (B) the less problems to be expected with older engines.

Since when have you been using B20? It's just a few months that it has been introduced and seems most owners are afraid to use it although it is the cheapest.

Done away? No, introduced.

Read an article some time ago that plain old regular diesel was being phased out in the next couple of years, a new biodiesel (diesel blended with alternative oils) mix will replace the old diesel. A bit like how ULP went with Ethanol, now E20. Over time you will see premium fuels disappear as world fuel reserves dwindle away, maybe not in my lifetime. I had up until 2 months ago an old Toyota mighty X I used for hardware haulage, decided to sell now, as the new diesel fuels coming into the market may be a concern for older engines, however, I think any diesel motor built after 2000 should be OK with new fuels. I am not an expert here just saying. I am sure there are plenty of retired mechanics out there with the correct knowledge.

I understand the same. The simple term "Diesel" now always B10.

Seems they are confident that all engines that ran on B7 can now use this B10 stuff.

Went through the same mess last week at PTT. I always religiously got their "Diesel" now its bio blends. 

 

Naturally the pump hands were trying to get me to get the premium blends but couldn't tell me why. 

 

If no other option, get B7. Id stay away from B10 unless the engine specifically states its ok, otherwise you may run into emissions control issues after a few years, especially if its a new vehicle with tight emissions controls.
