Emissions allowances 

Alkylate petrol is kinder to people, machine and environment. Perfect performance for everything from lawnmowers, strimmers, chainsaws and snow blowers, to boat engines, motorbikes, go-karts, mopeds and snowmobiles. The fuel for people who care.

 

Where does the word alkylate come from? 

The name comes from “alkylation” – the process used to produce the raw material.

From gas to liquid 

The alkylation process takes place at oil refineries. Gases produced by the crude oil distillation process and the cracking plant are combined to form an alkylate liquid. This liquid is the cleanest petroleum product that can be produced.

The alkylate is then mixed with other components to form a finished product that is ready for use in most small engines.

Better for your health, the engine and our environment 

When you use Aspen alkylate petrol you avoid virtually all of the hazardous substances – such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons – that can cause serious health problems. The engine also feels better; spark plugs and cylinders stay cleaner, for longer. And Aspen does not go off during storage, so your engine will start even when it’s not been used for a long time. There are plenty of environmental benefits too. Alkylate petrol, for example, produces 40% less ground-level ozone (smog) than traditional fuels.

Greatest benefit 

Small engines are often uncomplicated and, from a technical perspective, simple engines with poor combustion. That means that a lot of the fuel remains unburnt. This has a negative impact on both the environment and on you, the user. 

The following run well on Aspen alkylate petrol: 

Lawnmowers, strimmers, snow blowers, rotary cultivators, outboards, chainsaws, clearing saws, hedge trimmers, mopeds, generators, motorbikes.

With or without oil 

Our petrol comes in two main variants – Aspen 2 and Aspen 4.

Aspen 2 is ready-mixed with 2% fully-synthetic two-stroke oil. Aspen 2 is used for all two-stroke engines except for outboards which need a special outboard oil to be added. Aspen 4 is unmixed and is used in four-stroke engines and for two-stroke engines that have separate lubrication.
