Isuzu has invited its customers to bring in their pickups for inspection before using the B20 biofuel, the company announced on Friday (July 26).

Panatda Chennavasin, vice president of Tripetch Isuzu Sales Co Ltd, said the move was aimed at helping promote the government’s initiative to increase B20 usage in small diesel vehicles. Benefits include lower fuel costs as well as lower dependency on fuel imports.

“Isuzu, a leader in diesel technology and biodiesel fuel, gladly supports the Thai government’s initiative which will help farmers suffering from dropping palm oil prices, as well as lower the amount of fuel we need to import,” she said.

Panatda said Isuzu believes promoting B20, which is cheaper than regular diesel, is one of the strategic moves to ensure sustainability for the country in the long run.

Models that Isuzu recommends for inspection are the D-MAX pickup from 2012 to present and all Mu-X models. Customers coming in for a B20 inspection package at Isuzu service centres will enjoy discounts in labour fee and parts. The offer is valid from Friday until December 30.
