What are the fuel types commonly available?

Common Fuel Types:

Enter any fuel station and you may see a full range of various fuels, especially the premium offerings. you will see regular unleaded, or 91-octane, premium unleaded 95, premium unleaded 98, E10 unleaded, E85 ethanol, diesel, and premium diesel. That’s plenty of choice and potential disaster considering that there are only two major fuels: unleaded petrol and diesel.

LPG, or liquid petroleum gas, is another fuel you’ll find, but it’s not as popular because it once was given the prices of conversions have gone up and government subsidies on new conversions are scrapped. LPG excises have now been imposed and costs have also risen sharply, dramatically offsetting the cost-effectiveness of running LPG.

With the death of local manufacturing, Holden and Ford now not produce LPG-dedicated vehicles. No new cars sold today are available as LPG-only or perhaps flex-LPG/petrol. Another nail within the coffin of LPG is that it’s difficult to impossible to source in country areas, with many suburban stations removing pumps thanks to low demand. LPG is now largely relegated to taxi use and older existing conversions.

The ‘premium’ varieties offer some advantages over regular unleaded, the most one being an enhanced additive package. per the refineries, they’re said to get rid of deposits within the equipment and keep it clean, thus maintaining a correct fuel injector spray pattern.

These additives also help reduce carbon build-up within the combustion chamber. This benefit may end up within the fuel economy of a specific vehicle being maintained over its life. Sadly, these additives don’t actually increase the ability of your engine, despite what the company marketing teams might suggest.

Premium fuels, especially petrol, are only necessary if your vehicle requires them. Most European vehicles require premium 95 at a minimum, while most Japanese makes and locally produced cars only need 91 regular unleaded. Fuelling up with the next grade of fuel than your car requires may be a waste of cash. It’s good practice to place a fuel cleaning additive within the tank from your local SuperRepAuto, usually once or twice a year, to stay the system clean.

For premium diesel, the most additive may be a defoaming, so you’ll be able to fill the tank faster without it frothing everywhere the place sort of a rabid animal. Beyond that, premium diesel also has cleaning and anti-corrosion additives. It’s worth noting that premium diesel is that the only diesel oil on offer at most metropolitan service stations, aside from large interstate trucking routes or country areas.
