    BP Ultimate 102

    On 24 April 2006 BP Ultimate unveiled its revolutionary high-octane fuel. BP Ultimate 102 Unleaded is the most advanced, high-performance petrol sold on any forecourt in the UK. Launching at selected sites in the south east, private motor sport enthusiasts will for the first time have access to a precision engineered, high octane fuel direct from forecourts on their way to motor racing circuits.
    Designed specifically for private motor sport enthusiasts , BP Ultimate 102 Unleaded is a tuned engine's dream come true. Meeting the same high specifications of fuels used in the pinnacle of motor sport in Formula One racing and the World Rally Championships, the fuel has an octane number of 102 and has been formulated to allow highly tuned engines to perform at their best. What's more BP Ultimate 102 unleaded also fully complies with BS:EN228 (the UK specification for unleaded petrol) which means that it can be legally used on the road.

    BP Ultimate 102 Unleaded is so exclusive that it is 'hand made' in small batches at BP's Speciality Fuels Technology Centre in the UK, using the same expertise employed for Formula 1 fuels manufacturing. Paul Beckwith, VP, Fuels Product Management for BP comments:

    "BP is widely acknowledged for its fuels technology expertise across a range of transport fuels and has an excellent reputation in Formula 1 circles, having been involved in the development, manufacture and supply of fuels to the F1 community over the last twenty years. Fuels of this type have not been readily available to the public previously, but now we have introduced BP Ultimate 102 unleaded specifically for private motorsport enthusiasts to use at track days and other events, based on our product technology in this field. This fuel has a range of features to allow increased performance from the most highly tuned engines, alongside all of the benefits that drivers expect from BP Ultimate fuels. We are delighted to make this remarkable fuel easily accessible from our forecourts."

    Testing
    BP Ultimate 102 Unleaded has been developed for vehicles tuned for increased performance. In the range of vehicles we tested, where the ignition was remapped, Ultimate 102 gave typical power benefits of between 4.0 and 7.5 per cent above normal Ultimate Unleaded 97. On a very high performance, turbo charged vehicle, with boost pressure increased, the power benefits seen included an increase in maximum power of 37 bhp (8.6%), and as much as 60 bhp (16%) at some points in the engine speed range.

    High Octane
    BP Ultimate 102 Unleaded has the highest octane rating available on any forecourt in the UK. It is the only service station fuel which truly reflects the properties of fuels used at the cutting edge of motorsport, making it the most highly specified unleaded fuel available at forecourt.

    Crystal clear purity
    BP Ultimate 102 is a precise recipe using a completely different manufacturing process compared to conventional refining. This processing results in a fuel with exceptional quality without the main impurities found in ordinary fuel. This is demonstrated by the crystal clear appearance, compared to the yellowish colour of typical petrol - the only forecourt fuel in the UK to boast this characteristic.

    Less harmful to the environment
    In addition to its unique performance qualities, BP Ultimate 102 is also less harmful to the environment than ordinary fuels:


    Its unique purity and superior evaporation properties improve the combustion process in the engine, which means that less of the fuel is emitted as partially burnt pollutants, such as carbon monoxide and unburnt hydrocarbons.
    Its sulphur free formula will improve the operation of the catalytic converter, reducing exhaust emissions.
    With less that 0.1% benzene, BP Ultimate 102 unleaded is safer to handle and less harmful to the environment and is the only automotive petrol not classed as carcinogenic.
    The fuel contains a high performance oxygen containing bio-component, which means that overall greenhouse gas emissions - associated with global warming - are reduced, helping to protect the environment.

    Its pointless though, you would need your car to be mapped correctly for it to have any type of gain, plus then thats all you could run. Bit of a waste when it costs about £2.64 a litre.

    Excellent news! So it's only going to be a limited thing then? Ie, only certain sites will get it? Or will it eventually be available nationwide?
