Don't need 95 Octane Petrol if 92 is provided - Trishaws

The All Ceylon Three Wheeler Owners’ Association has stated that three wheeler drivers do not obtain 95 Octane petrol if there is an adequate supply of 92 Octane petrol at filling stations.

The Association's President - Lalith Dharmasekera has told the media that suspending the supply of 95 Octane petrol for three wheelers in the event of a shortage at 92 Octane petrol will create a number of issues.

Dharmasekara said fuel prices increased drastically over the past months, adding three wheeler owners resorted to using 95 Octane petrol in the absence of 92 Octane petrol.

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation had yesterday earlier decided to suspend the supply of 95 Octane petrol for motorcycles and three wheelers considering the current fuel stocks in the country.
