Many new vehicles leaving Audi plants with R33 fuel

December 12, 2022 |

In Germany, many new vehicles that leave the Audi plants are delivered with environmentally-friendly R33 fuel. After the plants’ filling stations transitioned to R33 Blue Diesel last year, its complement R33 Blue Gasoline was introduced – Audi’s way of contributing to defossilization and helping to reach climate targets.

Environmentally friendly R33 Blue Diesel has been available at Audi filling stations in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm since March 2021. As its complement, R33 Blue Gasoline now replaces conventional E10 gasoline.

R33 Blue Gasoline and R33 Blue Diesel consist of one third renewable components, based exclusively on residual and waste materials, hence being called second-generation biofuels. The renewable portion of the gasoline consists of 10 percent fuel oxygenates, e.g., ethanol, and 23 percent bionaphtha, which is obtained from residual materials, such as tall oil, a by-product of pulp production. R33 Blue Diesel consists of 26 percent renewable paraffinic fuel, i.e., HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil), and 7 percent biodiesel. The remaining 67 percent is made up of fossil fuel.
