Petrox: Unleaded Gasoline Will Not Harm Non-Catalytic Motors

Wednesday, March 28, 2001

The end of production of leaded gasoline in Chile will not cause problems for vehicles without catalytic converters, Chile's state-owned oil company Enap refinery subsidiary Petrox said, reported in local press. The measure could however affect vehicles made before 1970.

From Saturday Enap will stop producing 93 octane leaded gasoline, but by substituting this production for greater non-leaded production, sales will not be affected. At present, the company sells 30,000 cu m of leaded gasoline per month, and it will increase production of unleaded gasoline from 20,000 to 50,000 cu m per month.
