On April 9, 2019, Thailand Energy policymakers announced that biodiesel B20 will be compatible with nearly all general trucks on the road in Thailand.
A guarantee letter from truck assemblers was sent to the department on April 9, paving the way for B20 to become available at 156 fueling stations nationwide.
Owners of Isuzu trucks should contact the Isuzu consultation center to check and change lube oil and car filters when switching to B20.
Also, Toyota announced that it is ready to comply with B20 fuel and that the company supports the government's initiative to tackle air pollution, mentioning that the Hilux and Fortuner models are compatible with the biofuel.
The department will further talk with ME makers to cap wax and monoglyceride content at 0.4% to avoid exceeding 200 parts per million, in line with the concerns of the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association.
The next step for policymakers is to mandate B10 instead of B7.
