These different types of petrol can affect your vehicle in various ways. High octane petrol, with an octane level above 90 (sometimes reaching 94), is considered the best. It promotes engine longevity and has cleaner quality. Normal and premium petrol are also acceptable, but their octane levels are slightly lower than high octane.

Here’s the distinction between the various types of petrol

– Normal petrol typically has an octane level of 85 or more.
– Premium petrol falls within the octane number range of 88 to 90. It is often labeled as “High Power,” “Power,” “Speed,” or “Extra Mile,” and specific fuel dispensers are designated for it.

Which petrol is advantageous?

High-quality petrol, like high octane, reduces engine noise, decreases engine wear and tear, and is particularly beneficial for turbocharged or high compression vehicles. Using high octane petrol can help control and reduce service costs.

Additionally, it can lead to improved fuel efficiency. It is worth noting that the market is witnessing increasing interest in electric cars and, before that, CNG vehicles. The government is also promoting flex fuel and ethanol fuel options.
