KARACHI: Federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Wednesday the new range of high-quality petrol introduced by Pakistan State Oil (PSO) is beneficial for consumers as well as the country’s economy at large.
To prevent adulteration, the colour of Altron Premium and Altron X High Performance has been kept different from other fuels, the minister said while inaugurating the high-quality petrol at PSO outlets in Lahore and Karachi.
Altron Premium and Altron X High Performance were already put on sale earlier this month at PSO petrol stations nationwide.
The higher-grade RON results in extended engine life and reduced maintenance costs.
The two fuels reduce the environmental impact due to lower emissions. Additional benefits of the new product range include better mileage and enhanced engine performance.
Talking to journalists in Lahore, Mr Abbasi said industries will get uninterrupted gas supply during the winter season, according to APP.
The minister said the government is trying to ensure smooth gas supply to domestic consumers as well. “We have ample storage of gas and have a comprehensive strategy to meet its high demand during winter,” he added.
