Dunno about better than other brands, but "Bob" will travel a lot further on a tank of "Ultimate diesel" than "standard" diesel. Seems to have a bit more get up and go (for a NA 1HZ anyway) when on that stuff...


BP Ultimate fuels

Wish that it were more readily available here in FNQ....How about it, BP???

Usual disclaimers, etc....

Caltex also has standard diesel and their premium brand Vortex Diesel.

The premium Caltex and BP diesels are meant to be the best available here in Aust

You hit the nail on the head Alby, "they are meant to be the best available in Aust" but what constitutes the best is not necessarily so. I was in the oil industry for 25 years and the crap that was sold in early days as diesel was so bad that the Europeans wouldn't release their diesel versions out here till the industry cleaned up their diesel. I know that they have now but to say that one company is ahead of the rest is a very big statement. As long as we don't get dirty fuel/clogged filters/costly cleanups I don't think it matters whose fuel you use but my interest was sparked by the frenzy to get their hands on this BP Ultimate, hence my inquiry as to what it is and what makes it better than the rest.
Cheers, Bill M

Every BP servo has Diesel, Ultimate ? Maybe
Big BP just near the end of the Hume, and the rest are everywhere.
Ultimate ?????.... Not so sure it's as good as their was 10 yaers or so back.

I have been told that Shell have the best diesel at present.
Our Patrol runs best on Shell at the moment,.

Funny thing is that they all line up at the refiineries, and fill up out of the same bulk tank.

You go work it out, I cannot.

Cheers
Bucky

According to the BP Site Finder, the closest BP Ultimate Diesel to Melbourne is Victor Harbour in SA.

Above is a plan of the refineries in Australia - obviously every company does not have a refinerery in every state - they must get fuel from each other to supply their company owned service stations - eg shell servos in Brisbane must get their fuel from either BP or Caltex or import direct refined fuel from Simgapore. As Bucky says they all line up and get their fuel from the same bulk tank.

I doubt there is any difference between Ultimate diesel, Votex diesel or any other diesel - unless the companies are putting additives into it while in the delivery tanker...

Hi Wamuranman, You are close to the money re the borrow and loan system between state refineries. Firstly the ship that brings the fuel into the ports just starts pumping with the first oil company in line getting the fuel first, then when they have reached their quota they shut off the valve while the next oil company in line opens their valves and they get their quota and so on, etc. However the oil company that I was with would only inject their additives at the actual fill stand where the trucks would load, and if a foreign truck came in to load they would usually go back to their terminal and put their additives in. If it was a truck carrying to independent stations they would not get any additive at all. Hope this makes it a bit clearer.
Cheers, Bill M
