Astra 1.7 CDTI fuel quality problem - klajdi - 10:th-Sep-2020

Hey guys, I am a new user of a used Astra 1.7 CDTI 2011 and I've been told by some people around that this car is very sensitive to fuel quality.
Now the problem is that in my country fuel quality is the worst, there's absolutely no assurance of the quality no matter where you try to get the fuel around here, and chances are that the kind of diesel we have is just slightly better than the one your country uses only for agricultural vehicles.
Is there anything I can do to make it less of a problem? Except for going to buy oil in Italy or somewhere else, do you have any suggestions? Maybe there's some kind of liquid I can use to clean it up or I don't know, I'm an absolute  Newbie about car mechanics.
Thanks Smile
