This high-octane fuel which is a lot pricier helps extract maximum performance from high-end cars

  • In Delhi, XP100 is priced at Rs 160 per litre, nearly double the price of normal petrol.

  • Regular petrol is rated at 91 Octane and works well with most mass-market cars.

  • New 100 Octane petrol is better for high-end cars with sporty engines.

  • It offers improved acceleration, engine life and even emissions in performance engines.

  • Indian Oil has already made XP100 available in 10 cities with five more to follow.

The octane rating of fuel isn't normally a topic of discussion among owners of most mass-market cars but it is an important one for those who own high-performance models usually in the luxury segment. Indian Oil has now introduced a new benchmark of premium grade petrol in India, rated at a 100 Octane, and branded XP100.

While high-octane premium fuel offers little to no benefits to most models, it helps extract the maximum performance from sports cars. This includes models from the likes of Porsche, BMW M, Mercedes-AMG and so on. Indian Oil has produced this new 100 Octane petrol at its own Mathura Refinery using the company’s OCTAMAX technology. Aimed at the luxury/sports car segment, the XP100 comes at a hefty premium. In Delhi, it is priced at Rs 160 per litre which is almost double the current rate of normal petrol.

The normal petrol offered in India is rated at 91 Octane and works best for most cars. However, the higher octane allows for better acceleration in performance engines while also improving engine life. It is a premium grade of petrol offered in most developed countries catering to the high-end vehicle market.

Indian Oil intends to offer the new XP100 petrol across 15 cities in India. It has already been made available at select fuel pumps in Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Agra, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad. In the second phase, it will be available in Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Bhubaneswar. These cities have been selected based on the availability of high-end cars and other demographics.
