Ampol completes premium fuel upgrade across Australia

More than 200 retail sites have been rebranded to Ampol since August 2020.

Ampol has completed the roll out of its upgraded petrol and diesel product range, Amplify Premium Fuels.

The upgrade of Amplify Premium Fuels includes a new additive that helps increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions by more effectively cleaning the fuel system when compared to unadditised fuel.

The trials confirmed that the inclusion of the latest generation additive technology to Amplify Diesel improves fuel efficiency by up to 4%, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by up to 5% compared to the ongoing use of regular diesel. Similar trials with Amplify Premium Unleaded petrol yielded an improved fuel efficiency of up to 2% compared to 91 RON unleaded petrol.

To support Australian heavy industry, Ampol also tested the latest generation Amplify Diesel HD on local heavy duty mining equipment, where it delivered up to 3.9% in fuel efficiency savings, up to 40% reduction in particulate matter (PM 2.5 emissions) and up to 22% reduction in hydrocarbon emissions when compared to ongoing use of regular diesel.

“Amplify Premium Fuels have been specifically formulated for Australian conditions and our local trials have proven the inclusion of the new additive technology helps deliver a cleaner engine and reduced environmental impacts through reduced emissions,” said Patrick Luxton, Ampol General Manager Supply and Optimisation

Amplify Premium Fuels are available at all Ampol sites across the country. More than 200 retail sites have been rebranded to Ampol since August 2020, with the entire network of more than 1,900 sites set to complete their transition by end 2022.
