Automotive gasoline and gasoline-oxygenate blends are used in internal combustion spark-ignition engines. These spark ignition engine fuels are primarily used for passenger cars. They are also used in off-highway utility vans, farm machinery
and in other spark ignition engines employed in a variety of service applications.
Gasoline is a complex mixture of relatively volatile hydrocarbons that vary widely
in chemical & physical properties and are derived from fractional distillation of crude petroleum with a further treatment mainly in terms of improvement
of its octane rating. The hundreds of individual hydrocarbons in gasoline range from c4
An oxygenate is an oxygen-containing, ashless organic compound (such as an alcohol or ether)
which can be used as a fuel or fuel supplement. Motor gasoline is sold at retail outlets where it is directly delivered into the automobile tank. The Indian Standard governing the properties of motor gasoline & gasoline-oxygenate blends is IS 2796 : 2000 (3rd Rev).
In view of the auto fuel policy issued by Govt of India, more & more stringent specifications
(equivalent to Euro II, Euro III, Euro IV) are being made applicable for the gasolines being marketed in India.
This has led to reduction of environmentally polluting factors in gasolines.
