Highlights

  • Power 99 is the highest rated octane fuel available in India
  • Apart from Chennai, Power 99 is available in 20 other cities
  • Power 99 is available at limited fuel pumps in the selected cities

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has introduced its premium 'Power 99' high octane fuel in the city of Chennai. Power 99 will be a big step-up for the premium car and motorcycle owners in Chennai since the high octane fuel can withstand higher compression ratios from performance engines before the air-fuel mixture is ignited. The premium fuel is the highest octane petrol available in India, as against a rating of 97 RON offered by the brand's rivals. Expect Power 99 to be priced well over ₹ 100 per litre, which will make it substantially more expensive than standard petrol that retails at ₹ 84.19 in Chennai, as of today.

However, the fuel is restricted to only a handful of petrol stations in each region.
