Facts about BP Ultimate unleaded

2007-12-12 12:37
To get the best out of your car, whatever the make or model, BP Ultimate Unleaded has been designed to clean your engine to give you more performance and less pollution.

BP Ultimate Unleaded powerfully cleans your engine as you drive so it runs more smoothly and efficiently. The use of ordinary fuels can result in the formation of engine deposits which reduces the combustion efficiency and performance of your engine. BP Ultimate delivers a new level of engine cleaning performance.

It not only keeps a new engine virtually 'like-new' it also has the ability to remove existing engine deposits caused by the use of ordinary fuels.

BP Ultimate has up to four times the cleaning power of ordinary unleaded and independent tests show that it can remove 75% of existing intake system deposits. This means, dirty engines become cleaner over a period of time.

The advanced cleaning power of BP Ultimate not only removes existing deposits to help achieve improved performance but also prevents 97% of performance-robbing deposits from forming in the engine. This means, in a car fuelled with BP Ultimate Unleaded, if the engine is new, it should remain clean.

And for cars with carburettors, the cleaning power of BP Ultimate Unleaded also means carburettor deposits are significantly reduced, which allows for a much more efficient combustion, leading to improved performance and reduced emissions.

Enhanced engine performance

Many drivers take pride in keeping their vehicles running in peak condition, but when they are run regularly on ordinary fuels, even the best engines can become clogged with performance-robbing deposits which build up on critical engine components such as inlet valves and injector nozzles. These deposits reduce combustion efficiency and adversely affect performance by compromising the flow of air and fuel into the engine and the quality of the fuel spray. This can lead to reduced power output and responsiveness, and increased fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

A clean engine is fundamental to maintaining optimum operation. Clean engines work more efficiently, so they perform better, have better fuel economy and produce fewer emissions. And a cleaner engine can mean reduced maintenance and even extend vehicle life.

BP Ultimate Unleaded is an advanced performance fuel specially formulated to deliver a unique combination of enhanced engine performance and reduced exhaust emissions. BP Ultimate has been specifically formulated to clean your engine as you drive. Its outstanding cleaning power almost completely eliminates deposit build-up in new engines and can break down and remove most of any existing deposits, allowing your engine to achieve and maintain its performance potential.

This means that with regular use of BP Ultimate you can expect your engine to respond better and deliver increased power, sharper acceleration and better fuel economy. Benefits that can feel like you're driving with a bigger engine, and help you achieve extra kilometres per tank.

Our tests run under tightly controlled conditions in a range of vehicles show that regular use of BP Ultimate Unleaded can improve acceleration on average by a substantial 6.8%, and some customers may achieve greater improvements.

With up to four times the cleaning power of ordinary unleaded, BP Ultimate powerfully cleans your engine as you drive. It also includes components specifically designed to lower frictional losses in your engine. BP Ultimate almost completely eliminates deposit build-up in new engines and can break down and remove most of any existing deposits, allowing your engine to achieve and maintain its performance potential.

This means that with BP Ultimate you can expect your engine to respond better and deliver increased power and sharper acceleration.

Independent tests in a range of vehicles have shown that using BP Ultimate Unleaded can improve fuel economy by up to 25km's per tank. So, for a typical car doing average mileage that could mean up to 720 extra km's in a year, and some customers may realise larger improvements.

Less harmful to the environment

With the number of vehicles on the roads increasing, more traffic means more emissions and that will have a resulting negative impact on air quality. That's why, as part of our commitment to the environment, BP has launched Ultimate, a fuel specially formulated to deliver more performance from your engine, but produce fewer harmful emissions from your exhaust.

The greatly enhanced cleaning power of BP Ultimate almost completely prevents deposits from forming in a new engine and removes most of any existing deposits which build up on critical engine components. A clean engine leads to improved combustion efficiency, which in turn helps to reduce harmful emissions.

Our tests show that regular use of BP Ultimate can reduce the emissions of unburnt hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) from your exhaust.
