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

    From what i understand it is not that premium fuels clog pathways in the engine, its just that there are a wide variety of additives out there and the manufacturers can not gauge what impact these different additives in premium fuels might have on the engine. Which is why they chose to play safe and recommend only regular diesel.

    So what do you suggest guys...should i stop using the High Speed (Considering i am getting that fuel for free) and go for Standard to be on the safe side. Or i can continue using that....? :confused

    Karan, I have driven ~38K with absolutely normal diesel. I think if premium diesel would not have had some sort of bad effect on MJDs, FIAT would not be explicitly writing, " Use normal diesel only".

    Punto 90HP - Premium Diesel - reg

    Hi All

    I own a Fiat Punto Diesel 90HP. The owners manual says not to use premium diesel. Any idea why?? Does this mean i should not use HP Power Diesel or Hi-Speen Diesel.

    Would be great if anyone can help.

    Regards
    MrBig

    Hey Mr.Big , there are already a few threads regarding the use of these so called premium fuels in our FIATs. Like this one. So do search before creating a new thread. ;)

    As for your query , the premium diesel is nothing but additives added to the normal diesel and advertised as some sort of "performance" diesel.

    What i feel is that its just a way to milk the customers to pay more for these advertising gimmicks.

    Stick to normal diesel. Because these additives will not suit the Multijet and its associated components in your Punto. Plus you can keep your running cost that bit lower.
