Benzene? Like in C6H6? Or do they really mean gasoline.

 

It's usually used to refer to the no-ethanol 95 rather than the regular E10 95 (gasohol).

 

As @KhunBENQ notes above it is becoming a rare beast, our local PTT no longer sells it. I like it in the genset as it keeps better than the ethanol fuels, so I swap out the genny fuel every 6 months or so (use it in the mower) and put in new.

 

The stuff with the yellow tag 3 from the bottom @51.26 Baht

When the prices are so high, I am surprised that Thais don't drive at a more economical speed. One US government website which I looked at said that driving at 110 kph rather that 80 kph (I converted from mph) uses 25% more fuel, but when I drive at 85 kph on a highway, everyone is whizzing by (with the exception of the trucks, of course).

What’s the difference between the two 95’s ( the orange and the yellow ) ?

I use PTT stations and fill up with the orange 95, don’t remember seeing the yellow one.

The bottom two (expensive) options Diesel B7 and Gasohol 95 are the premium "Super Power" blends.

Okay thanks Crossy, have seen the Super Power at Shell and Esso, the price usually frightens me away .

No they mean petrol :cheesy: Or fuel? Or gas?

Please not another round of English variants (not my language).

It's some liquid filled in tanks of otto engine powered vehicles so to say.

In my language it's called Benzin.

And to add: Benzene has become a rare species in Thailand. Almost all cars run on gasohol.

No English variant. Benzene is a chemical compound, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene

and a large component of Gasoline (or petrol if you like). Gas in this context is just American short for Gasoline.

Just don't tell the Thai pump assistant that you want "gas".

He will looked puzzled at your filler cap :cheesy:

So now we have to master Physics, Chemistry and Semantics.

As if BE v. AE wasn't enough.

Berck, just give me 500 Baht in there. (And see you again not soon.)

Why is it my Niece insists that her Honda Scoopy will only run on Benzene and says she can't use anything else ?

Probably because somebody wrongfully told her so and she believes it.

Happens here, they (guys working in a bike shop) told me to use 95 in my little scooter, despite the fact I had been using 91 gasohol for 14 years! I was actually doing just that and recently had problems with how it was running. They drained my tank and found a cupful of water in each liter of my gasohol 95!
