EN590 Fuel - Is it what we get in India?
My Ford Figo Users Manual Recommends use of EN 590 fuel for Diesel Engines. I did a google on this but could not get any "understandable" information.
Can someone help me with this. Is the normal diesel we get here in india EN590 ?

I did some research & used a frd's help, who's inside Shell. This is not the normal diesel avl in India.
EN 590 fuel is the fuel norms in many European countries, This fuel has up to 7% bio fuel mix in the normal diesel i.e.. 93% normal fuel and 7% bio fuel.
So this engine can run on diesel which has bio fuel component of up to 7%.
In India, oil companies tried to substitute bio fuel with Ethanol, but the fuel price will increased to 20% more ... So we don't produce them, as of now...
