Sometimes there is giveaway on super. Sometimes there is not. Depending on constraints within the refinery sometimes premium may have been sold as super. It’s not the norm so if you car needed premium hopefully you didn’t run super thinking it was always Ron 95 quality.

Another scenario would involve super being not exactly 92 but maybe 92.5 for example based on constraints again. Similarly 95 might be blended to be higher than 95 Ron based on constraints.

With imported fuel who knows what the quality over time will be. Maybe 92 will always be closer to 92 and similarly with premium as opposed to giveaway scenarios that used to happen previously.

This thread is a joke though. Population will believe anything once it involves a crisis of some sort. Super really burning faster all of a sudden but only after the price hike? Lol.

What is diesel kleen ?

Is this a diesel treatment ?

And is the "new" diesel in the pumps now in TT ?

NB i filled at the same gas station which was Sun Plaza Monroe Road (UNIPET)
( I know many would not believe this)
Fun fact : super gasoline ( Ron 92) and premium ( ron95) produced by petrotrin is usually of the same quality. They does just dye one. That's most times btw. Usually the quality is greater but not worst. So you must consider that we will finally be getting real super (Ron92).

Ask any refinery men, they could attest to this.
My engine and its knock sensor will disagree with you.
While they might sell premium under the super label due to demand...I hope they not doing the opposite.

By that same thinking that might very well do something similar with regular i.e. sell super under the label of regular
By the way I was not speculating. I am stating facts. The refinery is efficient enough to sell premium quality as super. Obviously not the other way around. Ask anyone from the lab. Our Ron 92 is of Ron 95 quality as per international standards. When we import we will get real ron 92 which we are not accustomed to. Which could be the reason for the disparity in fuel efficiency.

Dont believe the propaganda that the refinery is rubbish.
While I understand what you saying, my car engine and its knock sensor disagrees with you... It doesn't run properly on super, and pulls timing when I use super.


I agree with kamakazi, since switching to premium, my car is running better and the knock barely noticeable now. Also getting more mileage. I haven't used a redline since switching compared to using redline every 2 weeks with super because of performance issues

That's about 11.4 km/l or 27 mpg. That's just about what you should expect.

What I would like to see is:
.. Fill your tank
.. Set your odd to zero or write it down
.. Refill your tank
.. Write down the new mileage
.. Write down the number of liters needed to fill the tank.

Petrotrin Chairman Wilfred Espinet in a television interview this week said, “we do know for a fact that the fuels we imported are consistent in terms of the specifications of what we were producing in Trinidad and Tobago so there should be no effect”.Espinet said the fuel brought in was a shipment of diesel.

Espinet said the fuel goes into an inventory and “although we may be transferring from tanks, there are times you are going to get residual in tanks that are going to mix with each other.”

President of the Petroleum Dealers Association Robin Naraynsingh said the statements being made are done so with limited and uninformed knowledge.

He said drivers must be cognizant of the size of the gas tanks, the millage and ensure that there is proper maintence of vehicles.

“They are saying things they don’t know. Every manufacture of a vehicle will tell you how much miles per gallon of fuel you get. They have to know what is the fuel consumption of their vehicles. If you say its burning out faster, are you doing city driving or highway driving? This thing is science, it’s not something you can just ‘feel’. Its burning faster, but faster to what?

People who are saying this have to be cognizant of what they are saying. What is their fuel consumption? How long you burn the engine for, the mileage.

Do proper maintenance, read the manual to car and learn about the fuel consumption of your vehicle.

The consuming public have to be more aware. Check vehicles if they are working properly, know that you are using the right octane level. If you buy regular you are using more,” he said.


Robin Naraynsingh is one kant. all that mc sheit they duz talk. ah man accustomed putting half tank ah gas in curepe and going chaguanas and back and the needle hardly move an now when you do that the needle drop to almost empty. i myself seeing my gas light coming on more regular now. and i have a new mc car. all them getting paid off to suffer we so we go be divided. just like arse with the beard on cnc3 dat say he aint see no different in the gas but he looking like he high or confused about wah going on.
wilfred go say is d same gas cause he own the boat bringing the sheit gas. dem pnm supporters doh bodder cause half ah dem duz hadda walk anyhow.
An elderly woman from Sea Lots even did it twice. She told Newsday she arrived early for buss-up- shot, walked home to drop off the two heavy bags of roti and returned to buy dhalpuri. She said she had many family members and they ate a lot and she wanted to ensure they were well fed so she was prepared for the walk and the wait.
she whole family make she walk from sealots to hoseins in independance sq and ah sure all dem is pnm supporters so no increase in gas go bodder dem.
Hahahahaha

seems ok to me - 2 different cars - highway run between north and south - one averages 5.4 litres/100km and the other 5.6 litres/100km. these figures have remained the same for both cars since they were bought and up till the last trip this sunday past.
Not really a scientific approach but suggests to me quality has not changed unless its the short trips that causes the fuel to burn faster

Before i felt as if gas was not burning faster, the fuel economy gauge was showing everything as it always was before.

Used to get 9.5-11km/litre in the city and 12-14+ on the highway.

Now i struggling to crack 9km/litre in the city. Driving the same, a/c on the same settings.

Most vehicles would give a l/100km.
Just assumed that was what you were trying to state. I guess the question mark was invisible.

And then appears the little feminine dickrider inhuman. Go fcuk yourself homo.

2017 Kia Sportage
600 km per tank
Avg about 7.4-7.5l/100km
Cost about 240-250 to fill. Same milage as when brought
I think a lot of people are perceiving worse milage because they are paying more for the gas. So obviously you're perception will be different to when you paid less.

That is pretty good, you must be doing a lot of highway driving to get that fuel economy.

Unfortunately some manufacturers give you fuel consumption (l/100km) instead of fuel economy (km/l or mpg).
