More diesel FAQs
AS a follow-up to our article on BHPetrol Euro 5 Diesel (“Know the ‘better’ diesel”, Sept 2), here are some more frequently-asked questions on BHPetrol’s Diesel, both Euro 5 and Euro 2M:
Where can BHPetrol diesel with the “New Generation” additives* be purchased at? All BHPetrol stations in Malaysia sell BHPetrol Euro 2M Diesel and 115 stations now also sell Euro 5 Diesel.
If my vehicle’s (diesel) engine is not one of the latest types, do I need to use Euro 5 Diesel? BHPetrol Euro 5 Diesel has a very much lower sulphur content which is much better for any engine as sulphur is damaging to the engine. Therefore, whether the engine is old or new, it would be much more beneficial to use BHPetrol Euro 5 Diesel regularly for the best performance.
If my engine is a modern type, can I still use Euro 2M Diesel? It is not advisable to use Euro 2M Diesel in modern engines as the higher sulphur content will cause problems and increase maintenance costs. Performance will also not be as good as what the manufacturer designed the engine to produce and ultimately, engine life may be shortened as well.
Can I use other additives in BHPetrol Diesel? The New Generation additives that come in every litre of BHPetrol Diesel are sufficient to provide all the necessary “Clean Up” (removal of existing deposits) and “Keep Clean” (removal of new deposits) performance.
How much additive is added to BHPetrol Diesel? Both Infiniti Euro 5 and Euro 2M diesel are treated with additives at the recommended quantity to provide both Clean Up and Keep Clean. This is to provide your engine and injector maximum cleaning and clean performance.
Can BHPetrol Euro 2M Diesel be mixed with Euro 5 Diesel? Yes, the two grades can be mixed. However, the full benefits of Euro 5 Diesel such as its ultralow sulphur content will not be available so the engine will not operate at its best level.
* The additives have been extensively tested in laboratories in accordance with the XUD9 CEC F 23-01 (Indirect Injection Engine Test) and DW10 CEC F 98-08 (Direct Injection Engine Test) standards set by the Coordinating European Council (CEC).
