No doubt you have been standing in front of a petrol pump thinking ‘should I use regular or premium 98?’. The days of simply choosing between unleaded and diesel are well and truly over, however understanding the differences between the types of fuel is relatively simple.
What really matters is whether your car is designed for the fuel you are using
The main difference between regular, premium 95 and premium 98 is their octane rating, also known as the Research Octane Number (RON). Octane levels indicate the ability of the fuel to resist pre-ignition or engine knocking.
The higher the RON the more resistant it is and essentially the more efficient your car will run.
If you have a new car, a fuel with a higher rating may be able to deliver better engine performance and fuel consumption. However, if you are driving an older model, there might not be any discernible difference. It won’t hurt you to fill your car up with premium fuel, but it will cost you more at the pump.
E10 is a blend of regular unleaded with 10 percent ethanol and is now widely available at most petrol stations. While most cars can run on E10, it is important that you check your model’s suitability before doing so.
Cars and many motorcycles made prior to 1986 are not designed to run on ethanol based fuels and should only use regular or premium unleaded to avoid serious adverse effects for the engine.
At the pump, E10 is usually cheaper than unleaded petrol because it is commonly produced from sugar cane, wheat or sorghum and it’s subsidised. Although it is cheaper to fill up, E10 can increase fuel consumption particularly when used initially.
If trying E10 for the first time after consulting with your car manufacturer, look out for any unusual noises or pinging, as this can indicate damage.
While no damage will usually occur if use different types of petrol, that is not the case with high ethanol blended fuels. Pumping E85 into a car engine that it is not designed for can cause damage to the fuel lines and other components or simply not start at all. It could be a costly disaster!
Not many models of cars are designed to run on E85. Currently there are only a few including:
While E85 might be cheaper at the pump, due to the lower energy content of ethanol, your car will consume more of it than E10 or straight petrol. It is estimated your car will use 35 percent more E85 than regular unleaded, meaning there are no economical advantages.
Don’t worry about mistaking this fuel for petrol as there is a warning cover on the pump nozzle, which you need to lift prior to filling up!
If you happen to accidentally fill your diesel car with petrol, avoid starting the engine as it will result in costly damage.
Bio-diesel is a relatively new product and at the moment, is only available for commercial fleets on a trial basis. It is produced using a mix of tallow or canola oil and diesel.
Before using bio-diesel, it is essential you check with your car dealer or manufacture to ensure it is suitable for your engine.
If you are still unsure which fuel is more suitable for your car model, speak with a mycar technician who will be happy to advise you on what to use at the pump.
