Description

Sasol turbo lead replacement petrol (LRP) grades are fully refined and contain all the additives necessary to ensure optimum performance under South African conditions.

To distinguish the various Sasol petrol grades from one another they are dyed to the following colours:

  • Turbo LRP 93 Orange
  • Turbo LRP 95 Red

Application

Sasol turbo LRP 93 is intended for use in all spark-ignition internal combustion engines operating at altitude. This fuel contains metals and is not recommended for use in vehicles equipped with catalytic converters.

Sasol LRP 95 is intended for use in all spark-ignition internal combustion engines operating at altitude. This fuel contains metals and is not recommended for use in vehicles equipped with catalytic converters.

All Sasol turbo LRP petrol grades comply with SANS 1598. and the Government legislation for metal containing unleaded petrol (LRP)

Features and Benefits

SASOL LRP grades offer the following benefits:

  • Their formulations include additives to ensure oxidation stability and prevent formation of gummy deposits under normal storage conditions for limited periods.
  • They contain additives which prevent carburettor, fuel injector and inlet valve deposits and remove pre-existing deposits where present.
  • Their volatilities are adjusted to prevent the occurrence of vapour lock under climatic conditions.
  • They conform to strict Sasol production and oil industry specifications.

REMARKS:The production technology of Sasol petrol products is based on the internationally known Sasol process. It is also supported by one of the most modern fuel research facilities in the world, situated in Sasolburg.
