    Where to buy 95 Benzene?

    Hi everyone, Do any of the typical gas stations sell 95 Benzene (not gasohol). It seems a bit rare these days.

    thanks

    Bangchak gas stations have 95. I use it in my RVF. But it isn't as readily available like it used to be.

    PTT still sell it at some petrol stations. I bought some yesterday. Look for the yellow 95 signs.

    Never seen 95 at Shell ( at least around my parts). Will have another look at my local one. Always nice to have options

    What I have found ( which is common in Thailand) gas stations sell what moves. When we live rural, many places don't have it or have limited options. 95 isn't used much anymore. To have a small station near my house is just luck. Not sure who is using it. I do check and smell it when they are filling my moto. I always fear it could be old and cause problems.

    Yes, directly above it it says 'benzine' in Thai, in your graphic.


    I just filled up in a new PTT station and they had the benzine pump with benzine written in Thai, but not English. When I went to check the price on the big LED sign at the entrance it was listed at 00:00, so is either free, or they don't sell or Stumpy cleared them out.

    David the prices here are fixed. I was referring to their "V Power" 95 which is about 7 baht a litre more than others.

    AO, I'm sure your correct.

    My pun was on the Thai meaning of 'shell'

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I did stop at a Shell station today and their 95 is in fact gasohol.

    I'll check the local Caltex.

    I can get VP 100 octane race gas delivered also 5,300 baht for a 19 liter can.

    The only thing that smells better than two stoke exhaust is race gas two stroke exhaust

    I used to ride with a Thai bloke that was on about syphoning off the hol in his gasohol by adding water in a big drum and letting it sit, then it would separate into layers of the hol, water, 100% gasoline. Then syphon off the top two layers.


    He was always drunk and breaking down, so I suspect it isn't the best of methods, or in any way correct.

    Such is life when your entire existence is based on a forum. But at least the little fellow is consistent, and easily amused.

    As it turns out benzene is quite rare around our area. I have checked all over and most stations have 95 gasohol of various types. Which actually seems to be fine to run in my motorcycle.

    On the way home from Phitsanulok today I stopped at a PTT station near Sukhothai and they did indeed have benzene 95. Next time I’ll bring along a 10 liter can. For those interested it’s marked in yellow at the pump and on the price sign.
