Most uneducated gas attendants and gas station managers no nothing about the chemicals in fuel or know the difference in flashpoints of different kinds of fuels diesel is around 140 deg f and regular gas is around-40 deg f. Guess You will just have to deal with it.

I imagine he has been doing it this way as long as he's been driving (a long time) and wouldn't be surprised if it was common practice for many there. Most, if not all of the Suv's and trucks were diesal powered as well as some cars.
thats cool you noticed that kind of stuff while you are abroad! Do they still use high sulfer stuff over there?

Im not sure about that. I was reading that years ago they were mandated to use at least a 500ppm fuel (euro-II) and had started introducing lower sulfur options over the years. I also just read that euro-IV standards (50ppm) would be government mandated by 2016. Not sure if that happened or if it was country wide.

He seemed to prefer Shell and I noticed they had two choices in diesal, what they called Fuel Saver and V power, opting for the slightly more expensive V power.

ahhh when the philipines better quality diesel haha. I have personally never seen "grades" of diesel so thats something new to me. I read somewhere that euro grade diesel has a higher mandated cetane rating than the u.s too, which is interesting since they are trying to ban diesel engines in the big metro cites like london...
