ULP stands for Unleaded Petrol, which is characterized with having an Octane number of ninety one and ninety two. This is the standard fuel that most vehicles use within the United States and throughout the world. It was first introduced in 1985 in an effort to remove lead from fuel after studies showed that lead is harmful to the environment and the people around it.

PULP stands for Premium Unleaded Petrol, it has a higher Octane number then ULP, its number is ninety five to ninety six. Anything above a ninety six is considered to be Super Unleaded, which goes up to ninety eight which is the highest level of Octane available. This type of fuel is usually used in high performance vehicles such as sports cars. Race cars would use Super Unleaded fuel in order to handle the fast speeds that these cars are designed to reach.

Ethanol is made from alcohol and is mixed with either petrol or diesel and is widely used in the United States and South America. It can also be made from sugars and grains and typically comes as “E10” which is ten percent ethanol and ninety percent petrol.

OPAL has an Octane level of ninety one and can be used in most standard vehicles. It is manufactured by BP and characterized by its low aromatic levels. It is mainly distributed in towns with high population density such as New York City.

Diesel is made using sulfur and oil, and is mainly used by tractor trailers. The most common form of diesel is 10ppm, which is an Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (or ULSD). This type of fuel attempts to limit the pollutants produced by diesel.

This type of fuel is created by using plant crops rather than oil. This type of fuel works the same way as fuel made with petrol and diesel, and has been around since 2008. There are various types of bio-diesel, which is commonly mixed with plant crops and diesel. For example, if you go to a tank that is labeled as being B30, that fuel is thirty percent plant crops and seventy percent diesel.

LPG has an Octane level of ninety one and is used by most motor vehicles. LPG is also referred to as autogas and is made from a mixture of propane and butane.
