Alkylate petrol/special fuel

Alkylate petrol is the cleanest petrol: It contains hardly any aromatics and olefins, reducing emissions of carcinogenic, persistent and toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by up to 90%.

Alkylate petrol also produces fewer nitrogen oxide emissions and is less harmful to the ozone layer. It does not contain any ethanol, whereas regular petrol has up to 10% ethanol added (e.g. E10).

Alkylate petrol has a much longer shelf life than ordinary petrol. While petrol from petrol stations
shows chemical changes after only 3 months, which reduce the combustion quality, alkylate petrol has a shelf life of at least
5 years. Especially in the case of garden equipment such as lawn mowers and chainsaws, the petrol is often not used for 6 months, this then leads to starting difficulties and combustion residues.

Alkylate petrol is often referred to as “environmental petrol” because it is 99% cleaner than regular petrol.
By the way, alkylate petrol can be mixed with normal petrol without any problems, so it is not necessary to empty the tank.

Did you know?

Alkylate petrol can be used for all internal combustion engines.
With less combustion residue, it keeps the engine clean longer and starts smoothly even after extended periods of downtime.
Many municipalities already mandate the use of alkylate petrol to protect the health of their employees, the environment, and also their machinery.

But private users should also pay attention to these factors and use alkylate petrol wherever petrol is burned freely and without a catalytic converter.
