This British Standard specifies requirements for high octane super unleaded petrol for use in petrol engine vehicles designed to run on unleaded petrol. It is aimed at the petroleum fuels industry, including retailers, manufacturers and suppliers. It is primarily intended to ensure compliance at the retail pump.

The principal changes from the 2000 edition in this revision are as follows:

  • The maximum sulfur content has been reduced to 50 mg/kg to conform to EU Directive 2003/17/EC
  • The maximum aromatic content has been reduced from 42 % (V/V) to 35 % (V/V) to conform to EU Directive 2003/17/EC
  • The test methods have been updated to make them compatible with BS EN 228.
