Johannesburg - BP South Africa launched its best ever range of dirt-busting fuels: BP Ultimate with Active technology.

Designed to complement the very latest, high-spec engine technologies and benefit older vehicles, BP Ultimate fuels with Active technology have proven dirt-busting properties.

Scrupulously tested by BP scientists using more than 80 different test methods, the new BP Ultimate fuels start working to fight the effects of dirt the moment you start your engine, and with ongoing use help deliver a smoother drive, reduce the risk of unplanned maintenance and give you more kilometres per tank.  Up to 56 km more when using new BP Ultimate Diesel.

Rigorously tested

BP’s newest fuels have been five years in development. BP scientists have created an innovative formula - based on patented technology - to address the harmful dirt which can be present in engines today. Throughout this process BP has undertaken extensive testing, both in the lab and in real vehicles.

Going beyond industry standard tests so as to better represent real world driving conditions, the fuels were subjected to more than 80 different test methods and thousands of hours in engines and vehicles. These ensure BP Ultimate fuels with Active technology really do deliver a cleaner engine – whatever the age of the car.

Dirt Busting

Even a tiny amount of dirt can have a big impact on the performance of an engine, so a clean engine is fundamental to keeping a vehicle working as it should. The choice of fuel plays an important role: helping your engine run smoothly and efficiently, which could deliver greater distances between refuels, and helping reduce the risk of unplanned maintenance, so your car is better protected against the cost and hassle of an unexpected trip to the workshop.

Active Molecules

BP Ultimate fuels with Active technology work in two ways – the active molecules drag dirt away from critical engine components and also form a protective barrier against dirt to help prevent future build up. 

Head of Retail and BP South Africa Spokesperson, Reneilwe Letswalo commented: “We set out to develop a fuel that would tackle the problem of harmful dirt, genuinely support engine performance and help people maintain the health of their car and avoid costly trips to a mechanic.

What we’ve achieved over the last five years is a new range of Ultimate fuels that not only clean engines but start doing so from the very first fill, whatever the age of the engine, and help deliver that all important fuel economy. We are pleased to bring our newest dirt-busting innovation and best ever range of Ultimate fuels to our customers in South Africa.”

*Disclaimer: Benefit is achieved over time with ongoing use and based on tests in dirty versus clean engines. Expected range per tank in dirty condition 850km. Average benefit 35km. Benefits may vary due to factors including vehicle condition and driving style.
