Qatar Petroleum (QP) announced on Thursday that the specifications of the automobile gasoline sold at petrol stations across Qatar will be amended as of June 1. Under the new specifications, Super and Premium gasoline grades will now become 95 octane (instead of 97) and 91 octane (instead of 90), respectively, the company said in a press release.
The new specifications are consistent with international standard specifications in effect in GCC countries and the majority of world countries, it said. The company said it assures users that Super 95 octane and Premium 91 octane gasoline are high quality fuel grades that suit all gasoline-driven cars in Qatar, and recommended that drivers continue to use Super and Premium gasoline as usual.
