Guys,

 

This may sound a little obvious to most, but I need some advice.

 

I'm looking at shipping my cars over to Thailand, but before i do i need to know what is there an equivalent unleaded fuel here? Or do i need to have some modification done to adapt to a different fuel type.

 

Any replies would be most helpful

 

Cheers

As Chris says the Import Duty and other rigmarole makes importing your vehicle a no go for most of us.

 

There is straight unleaded - 91 octane at least - but it's getting harder and harder to find, due to the Gasohol now virtually everywhere and expensive (+10 Baht/litre).

 

There's a lot of scare stories about Gasohol wrecking bikes and cars if they're not made to run on it, but I'm not convinced it's not old wives' tales, even from the dealerships.

 

As far as I can tell, it does affect the old rubber fuel hoses etc and that can bung your carbs up, but if the hoses are changed and there aren't any other such parts to degrade I think it's OK - maybe.

 

I put Gasohol in a Yamaha lots of times over 2 years, but when I had a problem they found some in it and conned me into buying a new carb. It wasn't that at all and I'm now happily putting Gasohol in it again no problem - it is a lot cheaper.

 

Kawasaki have told me I mustn't use it in a new bike, despite it having E10 (10%) on the tank. I'm using it, but a lot of the fuel stations have now gone to 20% (Bio).

The cars are 1 & 3 years old.

 

Would prefer it if they went on Vodka & Lipo :GoldenSmile1: (With a touch of Kamagra Jelly for the oil )

 

Cheers for the info pal.

Edge, thanks for the info mate. I'm hoping to do a bit of a swerve with the import tax :Cross_Fingers: But will wait and see. I too have heard some horror stories about different fuel types screwing injectors etc, I'm just going through the details now to see if i should bring them over. or possibly sell them in the UK and buy something here.

 

Thanks again :D

That is crazy, all new vehicles here should run on at least E10. I've not seen any petrol stations that sell E20 that don't sell E10.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
