Vietnamese drivers prefer premium fuels to E5

August 7, 2018 |

In Vietnam, Platts reports that similar to the reaction of Australian drivers with the introduction of E10, drivers in Vietnam are preferring to fill up with 95 octane gasoline rather than 92 octane that has 5% ethanol despite the lower price. The preference for E0 fuels has prompted additional imports of gasoline rather than reducing imports by using domestically-produced ethanol from cassava. Imports of lower 90 octane fuel used to blend with ethanol have soared but 400,000 barrels per month but 95 octane nearly doubled 2017 imports during the first half of the year alone to 1.25 million barrels per month.
