Australians to Get More Out of Every Tank With Completion of Ampol Premium Fuel Upgrade

Ampol today reveals that it has completed the roll out of its upgraded petrol and diesel product range, Amplify Premium Fuels. 

The upgrade of Amplify Premium Fuels includes a new additive that helps increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions by more effectively cleaning the fuel system when compared to unadditised fuel, as proven by a series of local trials.

The trials confirmed that the inclusion of the latest generation additive technology to Amplify Diesel improves fuel efficiency by up to 4%, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by up to 5% compared to the ongoing use of regular diesel.1 Similar trials with Amplify Premium Unleaded petrol yielded an improved fuel efficiency of up to 2% compared to 91 RON unleaded petrol.2   

To support Australian heavy industry, Ampol also tested the latest generation Amplify Diesel HD on local heavy duty mining equipment, where it delivered up to 3.9% in fuel efficiency savings, up to 40% reduction in particulate matter (PM 2.5 emissions) and up to 22% reduction in hydrocarbon emissions when compared to ongoing use of regular diesel.3 

Patrick Luxton, Ampol General Manager Supply and Optimisation, said that the upgrade of Amplify Premium Fuels forms part of Ampol’s strategy to deliver its customers world-class fuels that deliver in Australian conditions and support improved environmental outcomes. 

“We are passionate about supporting the journeys of Australians and enhancing the performance of their engines, wherever they travel.

“Amplify Premium Fuels have been specifically formulated for Australian conditions and our local trials have proven the inclusion of the new additive technology helps deliver a cleaner engine and reduced environmental impacts through reduced emissions.

“We have a long history of fuelling journeys for Australians, and we look forward to continuing to do so as we revitalise the iconic Ampol brand.”

The complete range of Amplify Premium Fuels are designed to help clean and protect the engine’s fuel system as you drive by removing power inhibiting deposits that form on the injector tips when using regular or unadditised fuels. 

Amplify Premium Fuels are available at all Ampol sites across the country. More than 200 retail sites have been rebranded to Ampol since August 2020, with the entire network of more than 1,900 sites set to complete their transition by end 2022.

Ampol engaged an independent engineering consultant to perform fuel trials under a real-world driving scenario.

1 Based on independent testing of regular diesel fuel compared to Ampol Amplify Diesel. Fuel consumption testing was conducted using a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS).

2 Based on independent testing conducted in 2020 where regular unleaded 91 octane petrol was compared to Ampol Amplify 95. Vehicle was driven on a Real Drive Emissions route in Victoria and fuel consumption testing was conducted using a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS).

3 Based on independent testing of regular diesel compared to Amplify Diesel HD in a Cummins QSK45 engine following ISO8178.

Note that all results may vary depending on the engine itself, environmental conditions, other factors such as variability in engine load factor and driver behaviour.
