Regular and premium fuels
The wholesale producers and distributors, as well as taps and fuel sales establishments in our country, have a term of 60 and 120 calendar days, respectively —counted from January 1, 2023— to adapt their offer to only two types: regular (91 octane ) and premium (96 octane). Therefore, from May 1, gasoline and gasoholes with octane ratings of 90, 95 and 97 will no longer be marketed.
