2018 gasoline prices in Thailand and fuel types (gasoline and gasohol)

I compared the price of gasoline in Thailand in differentyears and at the same time immediately decided to write a post about the types of fuel themselves. Because I remember my first visit to a Thai gas station and the loss of what was not clear than filling my bike (and then the car). But once understood, everything becomes not difficult.

Be sure to read my post about car rental in Thailand - here is the link. He told about all the nuances, where to shoot, what insurance to do, what deposit and so on.

Gasoline prices (update from November 2018)slightly different depending on the resort. In Pattaya, cheaper, on Phuket or Koh Samui more expensive. But if you go on vacation for a couple of weeks, then it does not matter. Lower price tag on Samui and Pattaya, photos taken on the same day. You can focus on these prices.

Types of gasoline in Thailand

In Thailand, several types of fuel. There is not only gasoline (it is called Gasoline / Gasoline), but also gasohol - gasoline with an admixture of ethanol alcohol. Gasohol are denoted in two ways: with the letter “E” (denotes Ethanol) or with the number 91-95, which is exactly confusing, because 91 also denotes ordinary gasoline. The only difference is in the background color on which this figure is written. Moreover, the 91st in fact is already 3 pieces.

The number around the letter "E" means the percentagealcohol content in pure gasoline. The more gasoline in the gashole, the more expensive it is and the less fuel the car has. Ordinary 91st gasoline without alcohol is no longer found. All cars and bikes in Thailand digest E10, and E20 is designed for cars of the last decade. E85 only for very modern cars. But do not worry, usually it is always about the flap of the gas tank of a car or bike that says what kind of fuel can be poured; Unfortunately, the notation is a little different from the gas station, I explain on the example of PTT.

  • gasohol E20 (light green background), 91st gasoline + 20% alcohol.
  • gasool 91 (green background), less commonly indicated as E10 (green background), 91y gasoline + 10% alcohol.
  • Gashol 95 (orange background), 95th gasoline + 10% alcohol
  • E85 gasoil (purple background) 85% alcohol.
  • NGV gas (blue background). There are also LPG gas stations.
  • diesel (Thai letters on a blue background).
  • improved diesel (Thai letters on a gray background).

I'm always in a rented car or a bikeE20 or 91 on a green background (E10), normal flight. Therefore, by and large, you need to remember only these numbers. Neither gas, nor diesel, nor E85, most likely, will be useful to you. Just in case, even below I will write, as indicated by ordinary gasoline.

  • gasoline 91 (red background), the usual 91st gasoline (no longer found).
  • gasoline 95 (Thai letters on a yellow background), the usual 95th gasoline.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
