Mercedes-Benz Malaysia had not been confident about how Biodiesel blend would affect their cars, so they decided to do serious research. Here's the result.


At the beginning stages of the E300 Bluetec Hybrid’s introduction, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has admitted that the use of B10 Biodiesel in their vehicles requires further consideration, but now the company is pleased to announce that after an extensive research process they have determined that the compatibility of B10 Biodiesel blends in their fleet of diesel-powered cars.
 
“After having initially stated that the B10 Biodiesel blend requires further consideration, we are now pleased to inform our customers about the B10 Biodiesel blend suitability for all Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles currently sold by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia. Customer safety and vehicle quality is of the utmost importance to Mercedes-Benz Malaysia. We have evaluated carefully the influence of B10 Biodiesel blends on our current diesel vehicles for the Malaysian market and we are now able to confirm its’ compatibility. We have service intervals of 12,000 kilometers to ensure that our customers are not affected by the diesel quality. Our diesel-powered vehicles currently sold in Malaysia were seen to have run both smoothly and safely with the use of the B10 Biodiesel blend,” explained Mercedes-Benz Malaysia President and CEO, Roland Folger.
 
MBM has always been supportive of Malaysia’s ambition of becoming an EEV hub in line with the global standards. Therefore the company has decided to take on the extensive research of whether B10 Biodiesel blend would affect their cars to further encourage the decision of introducing the diesel compound to our country. So if you’re considering the switch from petrol vehicle to diesel, maybe you can consider one of the models from MBM’s current diesel vehicle fleet.
