Euro 4 fuel from July onwards

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation will import and make available Euro 4 standard fuel from July in place of the currently marketed 95 octane and super diesel, said the Petroleum Resource Development Ministry Secretary Upali Marasinghe.

He said the Euro 4 fuel is more environmentally friendly, adding that 95 octane and super diesel imported to the country should also be of the same standard.

He noted that currently the CPC fuel stocks comprise of Euro 3 standard fuel.

Marasinghe added that although Euro 4 fuel is more expensive than the Euro 3 fuel, the government would absorb the additional cost and supply the Euro 4 fuel at the same cost.
