Reliance Petrol - Octane Rating

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I wonder what is the octane rating of Reliance petrol.  Is it "premium" with 90-91 octane or just the standard 87 octane?  I wonder why their petrol is priced slightly higher than the rest, but they don't mention anything about the quality.  And as you know, the pump staff are least informed.

I thought with Euro III 87 ON was history at least in E-III cities. 91ON is what satisfies E-III so every body is 91 ON, premium or regular. That is why Speed 93 was jacked up to  Speed 97.

I prefer Reliance for two reasons. Proper measurement (pumps are not doctored), and no adulteration. I find that R petrol is as good or better than the premium petrols of the PUCs.

Thanks for sharing the info, guys.  I too prefer Reliance petrol and the engine definitely sounds smoother and there was no early clogging of the injectors.  The constant use of premium petrol or high quality fuel will definitely have benefits on engine life and performance in the long run.
