What is the Best Fuel for Your Car?

There is an array of fuels that are produced according to different types and requirements of cars that might be completely unheard by you.
 
We’re here to give you an insight about the types of fuel cars available. (Don’t forget the presence of electric cars and electric used cars in the market while reading this).

1. Premium Unleaded Petrol
Even though it is named ‘premium’, it’s actually the standard petrol sold all over Europe. Premium unleaded is suitable for almost all petrol engines. It should be safe to use unless your car’s user manual specifies that you should only use petrol with an octane rating higher than 95. Although, there are a very few cars that require this.

2. Super Unleaded Petrol
Super unleaded is the highest octane petrol that is widely available in the UK. A higher octane rating means that the fuel will require more pressure to ignite. Hence, requiring a high performance engine. Some car engines – especially high performance Japanese cars – require the use of super unleaded petrol.

3. Premium Fuels
These fuels claim to offer more benefits and added advantages to an already higher octane rating fuel. Shell says that V-Power Unleaded offers three benefits – improved lubrication, cleaning action, and higher performance (for engines that can benefit) due to the high octane rating.

4. Premium Diesel Fuels
These fuels also include additional lubrication and cleaning agents to help keep your engine clean and remove existing deposits, something which can reduce performance for the diesel engines.

5. Liquid Petroleum Gas
The petrol is required to be compressed to be converted into gas when using this kind of fuelling system. This also requires an additional fitting of a gas cylinder. LPG is available at a reasonable number of the UK garages and is much cheaper than petrol, although it does give poorer fuel consumption.

You may also choose to look at Biofuels that are upcoming in the market. So, read up on the variants of fuel cars wisely, even if you’re going for a petrol used car or a diesel used car.
