For the Road
To produce motor gasoline the naphtha cut is de-ethanized, de-butanized and split with light and heavy virgin naphthas to produce motor gasoline. Petrojam has eliminated lead from its gasoline since 2000, and currently supplies two grades of unleaded gasoline: regular (87R) and premium (90R). Both grades contain 10% ethanol which is used as the oxygenate in place of Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE).
Motor gasoline is chiefly used to fuel automobiles and light trucks for road use. Smaller quantities are used for off-highway driving, boats, recreational vehicles, and various farm and other equipment.
Automotive Diesel Oil (ADO)
Auto Diesel Oil is produced by blending a part or all of the kerosene sidestream with the gas oil sidestream. Diesel fuel is used to power diesel engines in buses, trucks, automobiles, and other machinery. It is also used to fire industrial and electric utility boilers.
