What is Aspen Fuel?

Aspen 2-stroke Full Range Technology and Aspen 4-stroke alkylate petrol are the cleanest forms of petrol that is available on the market today. Using normal premium unleaded petrol in small capacity engines without catalytic converters can be damaging for your health, the environment and for machinery. Aspen alkylate petrol contains virtually no sulphur, benzene and aromatics, which is better for you and Aspen is ethanol free, which is good news for your machines. The ready mixed Aspen 2-stroke FRT alkylate petrol also reduces the risk of incorrect mixing, eliminating engine failures which would be a very costly mistake.

Alkylate petrol = environmental petrol

What we refer to in everyday language as environmental petrol is alkylate petrol. The name comes from the word alkylation, which is the name of the process used to extract the raw product.

From gas to liquid

The alkylation process takes place at oil refineries through surplus gases from the crude oil distillation and cracking plant being mixed. The result is a liquid (alkylate) which is the purest extractable petroleum product.

The alkylate is then mixed with a number of other components and we now have a finished product - the Aspen alyklate petrol, ready to be used in most small engines.

Better for your health, the engine and our environment

When you use Aspen environmental petrol, you avoid dangerous substances such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons, substances that can cause serious health problems. The engine is also treated more kindly, for example, the spark plug and combustion chamber are kept cleaner. As Aspen is also ethanol free, the petrol can be stored safely and even after long periods of no use, your engine starts without any problems if your tank has been filled with Aspen environmental petrol. Environmentally, there are numerous benefits, e.g. the formation of ground-level ozone (smog) is reduced by more than 50%.

Maximum efficiency

Small engines are often uncomplicated and are technically simple engines with less than optimal combustion rates. This means that much of the fuel escapes unused. This, in turn, has a negative impact on both the environment and you, the user.

The following machines benefit from Aspen environmental petrol: Lawn mowers, grass trimmers, rotavators, outboards, chainsaws, brushcutters, generators and motorcycles.

With or without oil

There are two main variations of our petrol: Aspen 2 and Aspen 4:

2 Stroke Aspen 2 is a ready-mixed petrol with 2 % fully synthetic two-stroke oil. Aspen 2 is used for all two-stroke engines except outboards, which need the addition of a special outboard oil.
4 Stroke Aspen 4 is not mixed and is used in four-stroke engines and two-stroke engines with separate lubrication.
