The new-generation additives effectively addresses the issue of the formation of hard-to-remove deposits in modern diesel engines, due to the high temperature and pressure, which cannot be removed by ordinary additives.
These deposits affect vital parts of the fuel delivery system such as the fuel injector nozzles.
The holes in these nozzles are very tiny – 0.09mm in diameter which is about the size of human hair and can be easily blocked by even the smallest deposits.
When the nozzle holes are blocked, the optimum fuel spray pattern into the combustion chamber is altered.
This will result in poor fuel economy and power loss in addition to other problems such as starting difficulties, poor idle, excessive smoke and even engine damage.
The specification by the OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) states that power loss in modern diesel engines must be less than 2%.
This can be achieved by additising Infiniti Euro 5 diesel at the minimum treat rate recommended by the German manufacturer.
However, BHPetrol additises its Euro 5 diesel at the maximum treat rate which is about 2.5 times the minimum treat rate.
At the maximum treat rate, there is no power loss – thus exceeding OEMs’ specification.
The maximum treat rate is needed to remove both new and existing deposits in modern diesel engines, as the minimum treat rate will not be effective enough.
An independent DW10 CEC F 98-08 Laboratory Test show that modern diesel engines running on unadditivised diesel experience 6.2 per cent power loss after about 25 hours of running time.
When the fuel is treated with the new additives at the minimum treat rate, power loss reduced to about 1.6%.
At the maximum treat rate, the deposits were completely removed and power was restored.
The effectiveness of the new additives has been proven in industry-standard tests such as the XUD 9 CEC F 23-01 test (for older engines) and DW 10 CEC F 98-08 test (for modern engines with direct injection).
The test procedures are formulated by the Coordinating European Council (CEC) which represents motor, oil, petroleum additive and allied industries in the development of test methods to evaluate the performance of transportation fuels, lubricants and other fluids.
CEC test methods, recognised by vehicle manufacturers, are used extensively in Europe and widely throughout the world.
Key advantages of using BHPetrol Infiniti Euro 5 diesel with the latest German additives at maximum treat rate include:
- Full restoration of power: exceeds OEM’s requirement of less than 2% power loss
- Higher fuel economy
- Lower emission
The additives are now available in both BHPetrol Infiniti Euro 5 diesel and BHPetrol Infiniti diesel which is the Euro 2M grade.
BHPetrol believes in giving customers the highest quality of fuel in Malaysia and this means providing diesel that has the most effective “Clean Up” performance.
It should be noted that BHPetrol was the first in Malaysia to offer the cleaner, higher-grade Euro 5 diesel in November 2014.
As the pioneer in providing Euro 5 diesel, BHPetrol has the most number of fuel stations providing the higher-grade fuel.
As of now, BHPetrol Infiniti Euro 5 diesel is offered at 151 stations, with the majority of stations located in the Klang Valley.
In Johor, there are more than 37 BHPetrol stations offering Infiniti Euro 5 diesel, as commercial vehicle operators travelling across the Causeway need to re-fuel using the higher-grade fuel due to Singapore having higher vehicle exhaust emission standards.
The price of BHPetrol Infiniti Euro 5 diesel is 10 sen more per litre, compared with the Euro 2M grade.
These prices are set in accordance with the managed pricing system which is reviewed on a weekly basis by the Government.
