What is Alkylate petrol?

What is Alkylate petrol?

The name comes from the word alkylation, which is the name of the process used to extract the raw product.

The alkylation process takes place at oil refineries through surplus gases from the crude oil distillation and cracking plant being mixed. The result is a alkylateliquid. This liquid is the purest extractable petroleum product.

The alkylate is then mixed with a number of other components and we now have a finished product, ready to be used in most small engines.
Better for your health, the engine and our environment

When you use Aspen alkylate petrol, you avoid dangerous substances such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons, substances that can cause serious health problems. The engine is also treated more kindly, for example, the spark plug and combustion chamber are kept cleaner. The petrol can be stored and even after long periods of no use, your engine starts without any problem if your tank has been filled with Aspen alkylate petrol. Environmentally, there are numerous benefits, e.g. the formation of ground-level ozone (smog) is reduced by more than 50 %.
Maximum efficiency

Small engines are often uncomplicated and are technically simple engines with less than optimal combustion rates. This means that much of the fuel escapes unused. This, in turn, has a negative impact on both the environment and you, the user.
The following machines benefit from Aspen alkylate petrol:

Lawn mowers, grass trimmers, snowblowers, rotavators, outboards, chain saws, clearing saws, hedge shears, mopeds, power stations, motorcycles.
With or without oil

There are two main variations of our petrol: Aspen 2 and Aspen 4.

Aspen 2 is a ready-mixed petrol with 2 % fully synthetic two-stroke oil. Aspen 2 is used for all two-stroke engines except outboards, which need the addition of a special outboard oil. Aspen 4 is not mixed and is used in four-stroke engines and two-stroke engines with separate lubrication.
