The cheapest.

Palm oil is used primarily to blend with diesel fuel and palm oil is a solvent. It is good on the one hand in that it can clean your engine internally but it is bad in that the dirt accumulated in pro

It would absolutely make 0.0% difference . Well , i'm lying ... maybe 0.0003% difference . What can be the difference is maybe slightly cleaner burn , but only very slightly . If you think it is better , good for you , take it , but makes near 0 difference .

Our old Ranger gets the regular B7 as it's not B10 qualified, the Mu-X gets B10 if the pump is free otherwise regular B7 (neither can use B20 or I'd be putting that in too). The jury is still out if there is any consumption / performance difference between the B7 and B10.

 

I've never really seen much point in the premium diesels as neither engine is exactly high-performance, I'm happy to clatter along at 100-110kph.

I have a 2011 Ford Ranger Wildtrac with a 2.5 liter engine. The Ford dealer in Phuket where we bought it told us not to use B10. But here in Chiang Khan, our only PTT does not have B7 except as premium so we switched to B10. So far we have had no problem except it looks like we have gone from 8.5 liters per 100 km to about 8.8 liters per 100 km. What year is your "old" Ford Ranger?

I have a MY 2014 Ranger 3.2 and I switched from B7 to B10 about 6 weeks ago. I only use PTT.

 

I am on my third, 1000 baht batch of B10. No difference in performance and I get roughly an 80-100 km more on the 'until empty' calculator on the 1000 baht B10 refill. That's commensurate with the roughly 5 liters extra B10 compared with B7.

 

As expected, the mileage calculator has gone from 9.1 liter/100 km to 9.4 liter/100 km over the past month or so. I haven't done the math to see if the extra 5 liters of B10 is worth the loss of 0.3 liter/100 km.

When I first got my 2.8 Tuna they gave me a chitty to fill it up. They said put in premium Diesel. As they were paying did just that. Have used it ever since.

Is it any better who knows, but it does return on a run 6.2lt = 100km. Bit more around 7.2lt in town. For a big lump think that's good. I did at one time fill up at PTT using their premium and it seemed a tad low on power. So next time filled up with Shell V power. The power came back. Not sure if PTT had given me a different speck. Who knows what comes out of any pump??? Have used PTT Prem: since and it runs like normal. I don't know what's going on now with all the new diesel speck, so will stick to Premium easy to sort out. Just look for the white label.
