That kind of information is way above the pay rate of the console operator. and the boss isn't normally around to ask... Mostly because they're overseas owned!
Gipsy wrote:Rob, I was just wondering if BP diesel smells different. For me it's the first and last time I'll use that servo and probably the last for BP. I prefer the unbranded fuels and caltex etc but never was impressed by BP. Most of our unbranded diesel comes from Malaysia so it's mostly pure diesel but BP is an unknown. Besides, that particular BP servo is a shonky one and has just been fiddling with its underground tanks so who knows what I bought. Rather than putting it in the hilux I'll find somewhere to dispose of contaminated fuel, ie the local tip which takes old oil for recycling. It all goes through the cracker and probably comes out as BP or re-refined oil.

Gipsy wrote:Normally I can smell the distinctive diesel smell but that's probably because I try to use the pure imported stuff.
Gipsy wrote:My guess is the BP has bio blend which might be why the different smell.
