What is it and why you should be using it in your garden machinery.
There are many reasons why people choose to use Aspen in their garden machinery.
These benefits contribute to a better all-round experience whilst using your machinery, making your gardening easier and more enjoyable.
- No expensive repair bills caused by stale fuel
- Your machine always starts and is ready to go, even after long standstill periods
- Lasts for years without deterioration
- Aspen does not contain ethanol
- Virtually odourless
- Less maintenance and a longer machine life
- Available in a conveniently sized container
- Premixed 2-stroke eliminates the need to mix yourself
- Easy to select the correct fuel using the coloured cans and coloured reminder stickers on your machine
- Protects your health and the environment
Regular petrol contains harmful substances such as benzene, olefins and aromatics. Aspen Alkylate Petrol contains virtually none of these harmful substances, and therefore reduces harmful hydrocarbon emissions by up to 99%. You are breathing much cleaner air whilst running your machinery on Aspen. Using premixed Aspen 2 eliminates the need for you to mix your own 2-stroke fuel – making it more convenient, saving time, and removing the risk of mixing incorrectly.
Regular petrol is a mixture of about one hundred substances, some of which have a negative effect on the operation of the engine. Aspen Alkylate Petrol consists of only a dozen substances that help create a cleaner and a longer lasting engine.
Put an end to starting issues
Modern petrol deteriorates quickly. This is a big problem for garden machinery as it often goes long periods without use. Aspen does not contain the chemicals which cause the deterioration in fuel, and as a result, stays fresh for years.
Machinery using Aspen Alkylate Petrol may be stored for long periods without any starting issues. This is not only easier, but also saves on costly maintenance.
When compared to cars, small engines such as chainsaws and lawnmowers emit a relatively large amount of unburnt fuel. These unburnt parts of regular petrol contain substances harmful to the environment.
Aspen has virtually no pollutants. For example, you can mow for 100 hours with Aspen Alkylate Petrol before reaching the same level of toxic benzene emissions as one hour of mowing with regular petrol!
Better for the water and marine wildlife
Did you know that 25% of the fuel from thousands of older outboard motors remains unburnt and goes straight into the sea, lakes and waterways?
Using Aspen means 300 times less pollutants end up in the water compared to using normal petrol.
