Diesel fuel grades differences? Diesel - Diesel B7 - Super Power Diesel B7


Recommended Posts

Diesel vs Diesel B7 vs Super Power Diesel B7

 

What's the difference between them?

Why is the Super Power Grade so much more expensive?

Which grades are acceptable for a modern car?

1. B7 has 7% plant oils, fats etc.

2. More expensive "Super" has extra additives to keep things clean.

3. Probably all..... But your handbook and/or fuel cap will advise.

OK,

after looking into the topic I've discovered that the letter B(x) with the number stands for the biodiesel percentage content. 

With palm oil being the most likely bio-sourced additive produced in Thailand.

 

The "Super Power" grade is what I'd assume to be the marketing term for the premium diesel grade, which is specific to the particular fuel distributing chain.

Other chains market their premium grades under different names.

Some "snake oil" as is the case with gasoline additives?

All of them. They are all low sulphur.

Diesel in Thailand conforms to Euro IV specifications.

Soon to be upped to Euro V specs
