My Eco Energy is someone entirely dotted towards making the world a better place to live thereby introducing so many conventional, low-emission fuels of premium quality. Their mission to move India towards renewable energy have led to the launch of Indizel, a bio-automotive diesel fuel, currently BS-VI compliant.

The GST category under bio-fuel have allowed the Indizel to be priced at Rs. 73.33 per litre in Mumbai and Rs. 68.97 per litre in Delhi. The introduction of Indizel has already made the popular charts in India as anyone with a GST number can avail it with benefit of INR 7-8 per litre.

Quick Facts About Indizel

Here are some of the facts that makes the introduction of “Indizel” rather revolutionary:

1. What exactly is Indizel?

To be exact, Indizel is a kind of bio-automotive fuel made from renewable vegetable oils. The fuel is known to increase the performance of every diesel engine without any modification or up-gradation. It is in complaint with WWFC (Worldwide Fuel Charter) category 4 requirements of the bio-fuel and meets Euro 6 requirements, the first ever bio-fuel in India to do so.

2. How is it different from Bio-diesel?

Indizel is the exact substitute of diesel offering much more performance and follows the EN-590:2013 norms which specifically means it doesn’t require any kind of blending limits unlike FAME, the bio-diesel which cannot be used as an exact diesel substitute considering its follows the EN-14214 norms and requires blending limits for further use.

3. How the BS-VI emission standards make it an excellent substitute?

According to The Bharat Stage VI emission norms for reducing the air pollution, the vehicles in India have to follow much stricter fuel standards. The BS-VI allows the vehicles to generate low sulphur emission of 10 ppm and Indizel already being complaint with norms as well as surpassing the standards with less than 10 ppm of sulphur emission makes it a kind of super-fuel. The BS-VI Norms will be standard with every vehicle in India by 2020.

4. What are the advantages of high cetane number?

Cetane is a measure of the compression ignition behaviour of a diesel fuel. Higher the cetane number, quicker is the ignition which will further lead to much more combustion stability due to better combustion of fuel in the engine. Indizel having a cetane number of 67.4 makes it one of the bio-fuel with highest cetane quantity, thus registering it as the superior alternative of diesel.

Some of the major advantages of Indizel includes:
  • High performance
  • Economical
  • Easy to use
  • Environment friendly
  • Better power/torque
  • Lesser fuel consumption
  • Higher mileage
  • Lesser throttle required for accelerator
  • Less noise
  • Smoother pick-up

Assam Residents Visiting Bhutan for Cheap Petrol & Diesel https://news.maxabout.com/bikes/assam-cheap-petrol-diesel-bhutan/ https://news.maxabout.com/bikes/assam-cheap-petrol-diesel-bhutan/#respond Mon, 07 May 2018 05:51:54 +0000 https://news.maxabout.com/?p=211158 Assam Residents Visiting Bhutan for Cheap Petrol & Diesel: As everyone in India is going through a tough phase with petrol and diesel price going up from last few weeks, people in Assam have found a way to temporarily tackle this problem.

Assam Residents Visiting Bhutan for Cheap Petrol & Diesel: As everyone in India is going through a tough phase with petrol and diesel price going up from last few weeks, people in Assam have found a way to temporarily tackle this problem. Areas close to Bhutan border are using the resources from neighboring nation to keep their pockets safe from burning.

Petrol price in Assam crossed INR 75 while diesel is hovering around INR 64 for every liter. While on the same time, petrol and diesel prices in Bhutan are pretty relaxing at INR 52 and INR 39 respectively. This makes every liter of petrol cheaper by INR 23 while diesel is even lower with existing difference of INR 25 between both countries.

As currency used in Bhutan and India are similarly valued, regions neighboring India accept Indian currency without any problem. They have capped the fuel filling to INR 500 due to some reason but still, a bike can get almost additional 3 liters of fuel for the money spent in Bhutan.

As no visa is required for Indian citizens to enter Bhutan, the fuel difference has attracted more visitors than ever. The fuel is supplied by Indian companies to Bhutan but due to zero tax agreement between Bhutan and India, the price is pretty lower in comparison. Government of Bhutan is passing on these benefits to their customers as they could have even charged a higher value by adding different taxes on the fuel pricing.

Excise duty exemption to Bhutan has helped them place such important everyday commodities at affordable prices but on the other hand, revenue loss to the government of Bhutan is pretty visible. It seems like the INR 500 capping is also placed to avoid Indian citizens misusing their lower priced fuel for their own use. Indian government is also planning to bring petrol and diesel prices under GST slabs.

Ducati Diavel Diesel Launched in India @ INR 19.92 Lakhs

“A perfect amalgamation of Ducati’s signature design, safety and performance and Diesel’s craftsmanship and style, the Diavel Diesel is unique in every sense” said Ducati India Managing Director Ravi Avalur. “With our collaboration with Diesel we’ve widened the potential interest in this limited edition motorcycle beyond the world of motorcycle connoisseurs to fashion and design aesthetes.”

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is inspired by the energetic dynamism of a post-apocalyptic future. In 2012, Ducati and Diesel had collaborated and created a piece of art – the Ducati Monster Diesel, and now this latest offering remains true to the creativity and aesthetics of Ducati and Diesel. Diesel will also be presenting a capsule apparel collection of Jogg Jeans, leather jackets and t-shirts reflecting the DNA and roots shared by Ducati and Diesel.

CEO of Reliance Brands, Darshan Mehta said, “Diesel and Ducati share a common DNA. Of Bravery. In imagination. In detailing. In execution. Embodied in 666 limited editions of Daivel Ducati bikes. And equally in the Diesel Ducati limited edition merchandise that will hit Diesel stores worldwide in the summer of 2017.”

Limited numbers of Ducati Diavel Diesel are available on order at INR 19,92,000 (Ex-showroom New Delhi) at Ducati dealerships in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune and Ahmedabad.

Distinguishing features of the Ducati Diavel Diesel

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is characterized by a hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure with visible welding and rivets that make it unmistakable and timeless. Details like the tank cover, front cowl, and passenger saddle cover are examples of craftsmanship and style. The saddle, made of real leather, is unique to this Diavel, on which the pyramid motif appears: the three Ds of Ducati, Diavel, and Diesel.

Other distinguishing features of this very special Diavel include the lateral air intake covers, made of red methacrylate with the Diesel logo on the inside. Red is also the color of the Brembo front brake calipers, of five chain links and the LCD dashboard, which recalls vintage digital displays. The Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system is another detailed work of art, thanks to the pipes graced by black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with ends machined from solid, on which the new pyramid motif appears.

Its 162 HP Testastretta 11° DS engine combined with the Ducati Safety Pack (ABS and Ducati Traction Control) and Riding Modes offer a riding experience that’s thrilling and at the same time safe and intuitive. The 240 mm wide rear tyre is full of personality and, thanks to the effective chassis set-up, delivers both high-precision handling and day-to-day comfort.

The very first glance at the bike confirms that the changes are noticed before your eyes blink. Diavel’s tank cover is made of hand brushed stainless steel with visible welds and rivets. The same effect is seen on the front cowl as well as the passenger cowl. The open welds are actually visible on most of the parts. The air intake covers are finished in Red and have Diesel branding on both the sides. The instrument console section is even finished in Red.

Official Video of Ducati Diavel Diesel

Ducati Diavel Diesel carries an exhaust which is nothing less than an art work. The Black zircotec ceramic coating and silencers are carrying the same pyramid logo that depicts the triple D essence of the bike. The ribbed leather saddle even carries the DDD pyramid and same does the Matt Black mudguard and many other parts. It comes with Red Brembo front brake calipers, designer rear view mirrors, chain with Red links and a bike cover.

Apart from all these changes, the motorcycle is offered with a capsule collection that consists of two Jogg jeans, two T-shits and a leather jacket.
