Avocet is currently developing our petrol engine fuel additive.
Like our diesel engine additive, when it’s mixed with methanol it will run smoothly in petrol engines, with very low emission levels.
Emissions from petrol cars have been dramatically reduced by the introduction of catalytic converters, which oxidise pollutants such as Carbon Monoxide (CO) to less harmful gases such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
When compared to petrol cars without catalysts, catalyst cars have much lower CO, Hydrocarbons (HC) and Nitrogen Oxides (Nox) emissions, at the expense of CO2 emissions which increase.
As a consequence of this, a catalyst car will also use slightly more fuel and become less efficient.
However, despite these improvements, petrol cars with catalysts still produce more CO and HC than diesel cars, although exhaust emissions of NOx and particulates are much lower than diesel cars.
