Cleaner gasoline coming to city

The 90, 93 and 97-octane gasoline will all be a thing of the past as gas stations in Shanghai will start selling cleaner 89, 92 and 95-octane gasoline from December, the latest initiative by the city to reduce vehicle pollution.

The cleaner fuel will be available at two or three gas stations in September.

It will be sold citywide from December. These standards cap sulfur content below 10 parts per million, compared with the current 50 ppm.

Manganese content, a major exhaust pollutant that can harm the respiratory system, will be cut to 2 milliliters per liter in the new standard from the current 6 milliliters per liter permitted.

In May, Beijing became China’s first city to adopt a standard which is equal to the Euro V vehicle emissions cap.
