Indian Oil introduces methanol-blended gasoline on pilot basis in Assam

“Pilot rollout of M15 is a stepping stone towards achieving fuel independence and reducing the import burden,” he said.

Indian Oil Corp (IOC) rolled out M15 petrol – – 15% mix of methanol with petrol – – on a pilot premise in Assam’s Tinsukia district. Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli launched the M15 petroleum within the sight of Niti Aayog part VK Saraswat and IOC executive SM Vaidya on Saturday. Teli said that mixing fuel with methanol will give respite from the rising costs. Steps are being taken by IOC to make India self-sufficient in energy, he added.

The pilot rollout was done in Tinsukia by the company due to the ready availability of methanol, which is being manufactured by Assam Petrochemical Ltd in the vicinity of Digboi refinery, said an official statement.
