Hi zxdiesel,

May I query, do you find any major difference between projet and BP, in
terms of clatter noise, smoke levels and performance? For myself, I have
just switched to BP from Petronas and find that the clatter is livelier
with BP, not sure about the smoke for now though. Do you experience the
same?

I own a storm now,and i found that when i'm using petronas,the car will
get less smoke.Actually the diesel we get in malaysia i dont think is the
first class diesel,right?So for car which using commonrail
engine,electronic fuel pump n injector,it will make the electronic parts
for more short life!!!Just compare the diesel in malaysia with singapore
or thailand,our country diesel is yellow colour.But in singapore or
thailand,their diesel is just like mineral water,is clear!!!

Funny if I remember there were earlier threads saying that
Projet was the worst with lotsa smoke and low perf.
Some engineer I met says here Sykt Minyak Melayu and Arseho have the
best diesel here and recommends to use them.

I infer here that Sykt Minyak Melayu is Petronas and Arseho
isEsso/Mobil....if so I am on Arseho and its very good for my car, smooth,
pretty silent for a diesel, power and economy...v difficult for me to swap
with another brand..happy on the tiger..!!

Hi,

I wonder is there any big impact on the diesel quality for older type of
diesel engine like citrone zx/xantia diesel?

Is it the better diesel quality only good for the newer type of diesel
engine (common rail, cdi, etc), not sure about mechanical diesel engine
like citroen.

Personally, i trusted project & bp, but lately found some feedback from
the diesel kaki here petronas is also good.

Could we differantitae the quality of the diesel by our naked eye? is it
lighter the color, better the quality? lower sulphur content?

thanks & rgds.

vediaz, i think u r getting yourself a bit confused here. Diesel doesn't
have a RON of 97, and u don't put additives into it at the refinery. There
is a "Cetane" rating (the measurement of detonation) for diesel which is
around 47 in Malaysia, but it doesn't reflect on the sulphur content.
Sulphur is refined OUT at the refinery, which is what gives it the Euro
compliance.
Proton export the same crap that they sell in Malaysia. I never noticed any
difference as you claim....you are just perpetuating an urban myth.
