The Government Will Eliminate Premium and Pertalite Fuel Types

KOMPAS.TV - The government, through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, has again put forward a plan to eliminate RON 88 aka Premium fuel oil (BBM).

As reported by Kompas.com. Later, gasoline with RON 90, namely Pertalite, will be a substitute for Premium during the transition period.

However, Pertalite will also be removed after the transition period is complete.

With the elimination of the Pertalite and Premium types of fuel, there will only be gasoline with an octane level above RON 91 which is claimed to be more environmentally friendly, such as the Pertamax type BBB.

Soerjaningsih explained that using Pertamax fuel was the choice because it was considered more environmentally friendly.

"We are entering a transition period where premium RON 88 will be replaced with Pertalite RON 90, before finally we will use environmentally friendly fuel," said Soerjaningsih, quoted from Antara, Thursday (23/12/2021).
