  • The best diesel out there ???

    Forummers,

    Just wondering what is the best diesel oil that you guys are using for your oil burners ?
    I heard that Petronas has the best diesel out there but I am just wondering what the other forummers use or prefer ?
    Is there a major difference in power or mileage in your prefered brand ?

    Likewise on rare occasions, does your oil burners come out with white smoke for a short while and dissappear ?

    white smoke means you got water either in engine or exhaust . if u see this in morning after cold night it should be fine. else get your car checked.

    one wise bmwcm member told me does not matter which brand as long the diesel sold in the petrol station is fast moving ( lots car pump diesel there ) and they put in new stock fast the diesel should be good.

      What is realised that these happens after a very heavy rain. And this happens after a few hours the rain has stopped. And it only smokes while stationary and only for a few seconds.

        could be rain in your exhaust tip.
        nothing to worry about.

          I like Petronal Diesel. But I think all the same lah. The 320d is already damn good....!

              The best diesel can be found in Europe In Malaysia, all of them are under Euro 2M standards so they are all more or less the same.

                    BTW, is there any station in near Bukit Kayu Hitam that has Euro 4 in Thailand ?

                          Was using BHP diesel, just pumped Petronas Diesel over the weekend to test it out.

                              Has anyone used the new Petronas Station just before the UPM exit in North South Highway. Its the petronas with the drive through Starbucks.
                              Well I have poured 2 full tanks for my 40d and I found the diesel to be of best quality.

                              First - there are no green/blaack sulfur deposits on my exhaust
                              Second - After pouring, my odometer shows about 1000km - I only get this no when i poured Euro 4 fuel in Singapore
                              Third - Its a pure diesel and its not a biodiesel version.
                              Fourth - My engine sounds smoother and quieter.

                              Does anyone have preffered station to which you have been pouring and have found the diesel to be like mine ? I will also recommend the petronas station in Cyberjaya (the only one so far) as I found their diesels also good as well.

                              Anyone tried this station before ?
