Ford Thailand has confirmed that its 2.0-liter turbo and 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engines are fully compatible with the quality and standard of B20 biodiesel fuel being promoted by the Thailand Department of Energy Business.
Ford vehicles in Thailand equipped with the the two mentioned engines include the Ranger (and Raptor) pickup trucks and the Everest mid-size SUV.
“Owners can use B20 diesel without having to take their vehicles to customer service for checking or changing oil filters. The use of B20 diesel will also not affect car maintenance schedules and will not affect insurance policies or coverage. However, B20 diesel users must use only the oil certified by the Department of Energy Business under the Ministry of Energy,” Ford Thailand stated.
“Following extensive engineering checks and testing, we’ve confirmed that both our single and bi-turbo 2.0-liter engines are fully-compatible with B20 biodiesel,” Wichit Wongwattanakarn, managing director of Ford Thailand, said.
