The new IndianOil XP100 premium grade petrol is being produced at the company's Mathura refinery using the indigenous OCTAMAX technology developed by IndianOil R&D. A higher octane rating ensures resistance to knock, which is a condition when the fuel auto ignites due to the heat within the engine. A higher octane fuel works particularly well with high compression engines like that on supercars and performance bikes. XP100 will also find utility in different disciplines of racing as well. Not just India, 100 Octane fuel is for a niche market globally as well, according to IndianOil, with the fuel available in six countries including the US and Germany among others.
