You have heard wrong. Innova Diesel, regardless of MT or AT, is the same. And yes, CDRI na din siya, although mahina siya compared to other CRDI, CRDI parin siya.
For the guy asking about the diesel for Innova, topping up with Shell or Petron is already ok. Caltex is also okay, but I really notice a slight performance drop when I use Caltex. I just use regular diesel and not the top of the line one such as V-Power or the like.
Still, I am using all three brands in my vehicle. It just depends on what is more convenient when I top up and where I can get a better rate for fuel. Please be reminded that by April, Shell Citibank will go back to giving a 3% rebate, similar to HSBC Caltex and BPI Petron already.
For those who are also wondering, if you are after financial savings in fuels, at present, there are some Caltex stations offering a discount, 3 php for gasoline and 1.50php for diesel. If you also have the HSBC Caltex card, that would give you more than 5% rebate compared to when you top up with Shell this March.
And if ever you happen to pass by Subic this Lenten Season, don't forget to top-up your tank there as there is no VAT there, add that with your fuel rebate and you will at least be savings some phps in fuel for lent. =)
If also you happen to pass by Laguna/Batangas area as you head south, fuel there is cheaper compared to Manila prices. Once you go down to Quezon and Bicol region however, diesel right now is at 50.20php per liter.
