FAQ: What do the terms PMS, AGO, HHK, and ATK stand for?
PMS means Premium Motor Spirit, which in common parlance is generally referred to as petrol. AGO is the acronym of Automotive Gas Oil, popularly called diesel. HHK is Household kerosene for domestic use, while ATK stands for Turbine Kerosene, which is also known as Jet A1 of aviation fuel. It is used to power aircrafts. Liquefied petroleum gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG or LP gas), also referred to simply as propane or butane, are flammable mixtures of hydrocarbon gases used as fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles.
What is Gasoline?
Gasoline is the fuel designed for spark-ignition internal combustion engines. Conventional gasoline is a mixture of compounds, called hydrocarbons, derived from petroleum crude plus a small amount of a few additives to improve its stability, control deposit formation in engines, and modify other characteristics. What can I do to get a better fuel economy?
Good fuel economy is a combination of good vehicle and sensible driving. Good maintenance entails a properly tuned engine , with a clean air filter, well aligned and balanced front wheels and tyres with the correct air pressure. Sensible driving involves smooth, steady acceleration; driving at moderate speed on the highway; avoiding overloading and use of the air conditioner; and not leaving the engine idling (especially in stop-and-go traffic) rather turning it off. What is E10? How is it different from PMS?
E10 is a blend of 10% by volume Ethanol and 90% by volume Gasoline. E10 gasoline (also referred to as Gasohol) differs from PMS in that it contains oxygen which results in more complete fuel combustion thereby reducing harmful emissions.
What is the acceptable level of E10 as a form of fuel from the standpoint of the consumer and the environment?
E10 is an environmentally friendly form of fuel that has been very well accepted in other countries, e.g. Brazil, India, Thailand, USA, Germany etc. The key to successfully market E10 is to prevent water contamination. These procedures will be applied all along the value chain from the export terminal to the import terminal to the depot and service stations storage tanks. Trucks and pipelines will also be subject to new procedures. Here, proven quality assurance procedures developed by Peoples Choice Petroleum Nig Ltd will come in handy.
What is the colour of E10?
The colour of E10 is green connoting environmental friendliness.
