    Re: high speed Diesel fuel for Punto...good or bad

    Is this damage very acute, i bought linea 1.3MJD 2 days back and filled with 23L of HP turbojet diesel the very first day, didn't knew fiat recommends regular diesel. i had driven around 50kms since then. now that i know wont fill premium diesel ever, but should i remove the existing premium diesel also?

    Not necessary to remove the premium fuel from fuel tank.

    If you fill premium fuel continiously then possibility of clogging is there.

    In case of non-availability of regular diesel,occasionally you can use little amount premium fuel.

    Higher octene means not premium fuel. Premium fuel contains additives.

    there is no any connection between premium fuel & octene no. of fuel.

    FIAT has adviced not to use premium fuel means not to use POWER & SPEED.

    You can use fuel of higher octene. But you can't use premium fuel.
    Octene no. of POWER/SPEED & regular fuel is same. I hope you will get what Iam saying.

    @bhai

    Premium fuel : more octane @ 0.8% + Added additives

    Normal fuel : Octane @ 0.53%

    Now let me ask you this...as all the TFI gurus have provided their valuable inputs....

    Can we use high speed diesel in punto....if you are getting that fuel for free or at a nominal price.....?

    Let me confirm that the source of that fuel is 100 % pure and refined....

    Well the source of our information is the Fiat manual which specifically states that use only normal fuel.
    I don't remember reading anywhere in the manual that using higher spec fuel would DAMAGE the engine.

    Having said that, If you are willing to Guinea Pig your engine who is complaining.
    We would certainly love to hear the good results. ::D

    RoyJ...i would like to share one instance with you. When i took my car for the first servicing the ASS Guy asked this as soon as he started the car...Are you using normal Diesal or High Speed ? and i replied normal ::V . Then i asked him what if i use High Speed is it going to harm my engine and he said that finding such refined fuel is very difficult.

    I am using a special breed of fuel (very refined) and i am getting that for free. Seriously not intrested in paying Rs 40 a litre to get normal diesel. ::D

    SPEED is Premium fuel. So avoid it.

    & which type of "Special Fuel" you are getting ? :confused
    Don't go to any Unauthorised fuel sellers. Some people do black marketing of fuel by doing adulteration.& pretends that they have some "Special Fuel" & deceives people

    As suggested Roy J , don't do experiments of fuel on MJD.
    I am victim of fuel experiment. :uh :thumbs down
    So always top from renowned bunk in city area only. Highway pumps are nightmare for MJD engine.
