For Gasoline 95, can look for Esso.

 

Look for the sign in Thai language which looks like "gwesh 95". It means Supreme Gasoline 95.

 

 

 

:cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

 

 

This is good news!

Riding up to Thailand for the first time in end July or end Aug. Need to know these infor.

 

I usually pump Synergy f1 in M'sia. So in thailand going for Gasoline 95 will do it?

gasohol still can use but try not to use it thruout the whole trip to save $.

 

it's not difficult finding any petrol in Thailand, usually there will be few pump station available in each province. if the 1st one u approach only serve gasohol then proceed to the next & next, else LL then pump gasohol.

Just an info for all.... I was told by the local that they will not be changing all to gasohol.... no matter what, you will still find gasoline in thailand.....

 

how to tell which is which??

 

The one on the left is gasoline, It is easy to remember.. My way of remembering is, gasoline character in thai looks something like the english letter " I U U something U" . So I always go for that. I will not go wrong.... take a look...

Not all gas station has gasoline... so.. i always go for PTT. They confirm have gasoline...

 

This is a pix of gasohol. Which is easier to tell as there is english....

91 & 95 still available....just pump 91 will do since it was much cheaper. Our bike still can take it but feel abit loss of power when travel at high speed. Just look out the colour if they never indicate 91 or 95. or in thai wording.

91 or 95 - Red or yellow.(sometime 95 also mixup with gashol, so don't fool by the number. Play safe pump 91 will do)

Gashol - orange colour

Diesel - black colur

in a single province usually there r few brand of station.. PTT, Shell, Caltex, Esso & etc..... not all serve 100% only Gasohol. 50 50 or 30 70 of 70 30 of them have RON 95 & 91 petrol.

 

try to get familiar with the color of petrol pump u last filled up from other station, else go to the next if u r not sure if it's Gasohol.

 

pure petrol pumps r usually 'yellow' in color.

 

hope it helps.

agreed. was forced to pump 91 Gasoline around Surat Thani area due to the total absence of Gasoline 95. Bike felt so sluggish and had so much carbon!

In January 2007, Gasoline 95 will be replaced with Gasohol 95 in Thailand...Anyway, tried it on their bike before?

Hi,

 

I used Gasohol 95 in my 2006 FI Victory Vegas Jackpot. IT ran OK for a while then started to loss power. Eventually it would not run at all. On investigation I found that the gasohol had caused all the rubber seals in the fuel system to disintegrate.

 

Basically don't use it. And, if you have to, only use enough to get you to a non-gasohol station. Don't leave it in your tank for any length of time. Gasohol in Thailand is not manufactured using the same ingredients as gasohol in other countries, even if your owners manual states gasohol is OK, it does not apply to gasohol manufactured using palm oil products.

 

Also, note some gas stations in Thailand only sell gasohol. This includes 91 and 95 - Lemon Tree & PTT are two of the companies offering only gasohol. Ask the pump attendent is the fuel gasahol or gasoline/benzene.

 

Cheers, Scooter.

it works fine for most of the modern day Japanese made FI bikes so far.

I guess the Thai Gahment wants everyone to use Gasohol. Premium Unleaded 95 is available at SHELL petrol stations labelled as V-Power.

 

From what i know for sure, PTT does not serve unleaded 95 any more.

Something interesting about Gasohol. I don't know if its the elevation (around 200m here), but I'm getting fantastic mileage, around 16km/litre where I usually get around 14km/litre in malaysia at similar speeds.

 

Or maybe its the lousy Malaysian petrol?

 

Price of Gasohol is prettymuch the same in the North East (Bangkok, Nakhon Ratchasima, Khon Kean, Udon Thani and Nong Khai.)

:cool:

Personally tried gasohol on my DRZ for a Koh Samui trip, so far so good. I have checked with overseas forum such as thumper talk forum and realise quite a handful of them are already running on gasohol for ages and on their carb bikes. That gives me the confident to try it on my drz. Works well for me from Hatyai to Koh Samui and back. As for mileage, not much different compared to normal unleaded fuel.

 

Now switched back to FI bike. Pump gasohol again during the Songkran trip to Krabi since it is already tested for FI bike. Not much different in the fuel comsumption part as well. All my friend also pumped gashol with no complain. One of them is riding a carb 01 R6. No problem as well.

 

So you can say I'm a Gasohol supporter now.

 

Hey, Simon since when you sprayed your bike to white?
