Super gasoline, with at least 95 octane, typically contains 4,8 % up to 9,8 % of Ethanol. Super Plus is defined with at least 98 octane.
Diesel, mainly used as fuel in transportation business and for the agricultural sector is one of the most important liquids in modern industries. Ultra low sulphur Diesel is used in vehicles as well as in machines.
