Octane 100

India’s first Octane 100 petrol was launched by the Indian Oil Cooperation recently. Octane ratings measures the fuel’s ability to avoid knock, which occurs when the fuel is prematurely ignited in the engine’s cylinder. Knock degrades efficiency and damages the engine. Higher the octane number, the more resistant the petrol mixture is to knock. Octane 100 will initially be available in India in 10 cities.
