Enhanced Petrol and Engine Performance
Unleaded E10 is United Petroleum’s ethanol-based unleaded petrol offering. As a result of ethanol being present, it has an octane rating of 95; higher than the 91 octane of normal unleaded petrol. Ethanol is a natural octane enhancer - adding ethanol to petrol boosts the octane number and its performance. It also helps the other components in petrol burn more completely thereby having a cleaning effect on a cars fuel system.
Lower Price at the Pump
Unleaded E10 is an alternative fuel that utilises a renewable energy source in its production and can be supplied at a very competitive price, compared to non-ethanol unleaded petrol.
