Regular, Premium 95 and Premium 98

Regular unleaded - has an RON of 91 and is the lowest octane level of the three petrols. ...

Premium 95 - is the minimum RON rating for premium fuels and is usually positioned in the middle when it comes to price.

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.

Regular unleaded - has an RON of 91 and is the lowest octane level of the three petrols. It is also usually the cheapest petrol when comparing litre for litre. Most locally produced and Japanese cars are designed to run on regular unleaded.

Premium 95 - is the minimum RON rating for premium fuels and is usually positioned in the middle when it comes to price. Most of the European cars require a minimum 95RON.

Premium 98 - this fuel has the highest octane rating and as a result, is usually priced at the top. Some experts suggest this is the most fuel efficient petrol.

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.

"Gasoline" is an American word that denotes fuel for automobiles. The term is thought to have been influenced by the trademark "Cazeline" or "Gazeline", named after the surname of British publisher, coffee merchant, and social campaigner John Cassell.

Conventional diesel and petrol are both produced from mineral oil, but the precise refining methods vary. Diesel is in principle easier to refine than gasoline, however it contains more pollutants that must be extracted before it can reach the same levels of emissions as petrol.

Additionally, the specific composition of gasoline results in a high energy density. This high energy density is what makes gasoline such a valuable fuel, as a relatively small volume of fuel can provide a large amount of useful energy.
