Pertalite

LIPUTAN6 EN – Pertalite and Pertamax Green 92 are two types of gasoline that are sold in Indonesia. Both are gasoline, but there are some differences that consumers should be aware of.

Octane rating

Pertalite has an octane rating of RON 90, while Pertamax Green 92 has an octane rating of RON 92. A higher octane rating means that Pertamax Green 92 has a more complete combustion, resulting in lower emissions.

Octane rating is a measure of a fuel’s ability to resist detonation, or spontaneous combustion. Detonation can damage engines, so it is important to use fuel with an octane rating that meets the specifications of the vehicle’s engine.

Modern vehicle engines that use the latest technology typically have higher engine specifications, so they require fuel with a higher octane rating as well. Therefore, these vehicles will be more suitable for using Pertamax Green 92 than Pertalite.

Emissions

Pertalite produces higher exhaust emissions than Pertamax Green 92. This is because the incomplete combustion of Pertalite produces more harmful exhaust gases, such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and hydrocarbons (HC).

The exhaust gases produced by motor vehicles can cause air pollution, so using fuel with lower emissions can help reduce air pollution.

Price

Pertalite is a subsidized fuel, while Pertamax Green 92 is a non-subsidized fuel. The current price of Pertalite is Rp 10,000 per liter, while the price of Pertamax Green 92 has not yet been determined.

The price of Pertamax Green 92 is expected to be higher than Pertalite, as Pertamax Green 92 uses a more expensive feedstock, namely ethanol.

Consumption

Pertalite has higher consumption than Pertamax Green 92. This is because the incomplete combustion of Pertalite requires more gasoline to produce the same power.

Higher fuel consumption can lead to higher vehicle operating costs as well.

Import

Pertalite is largely imported, while Pertamax Green 92 can be produced domestically. This is because Pertamax Green 92 uses feedstock that is available domestically, namely Pertalite gasoline and ethanol.

Domestic fuel production can reduce dependence on imports, which can support the national economy.

Based on these differences, Pertamax Green 92 has several advantages over Pertalite, including:

  • Lower emissions
  • Lower consumption
  • Can be produced domestically

However, Pertamax Green 92 also has some disadvantages, including:

  • Higher price
  • Not subsidized

The choice between Pertalite and Pertamax Green 92 depends on the needs and condition of the vehicle. Vehicles that use the latest technology with more efficient engines will be more suitable for using Pertamax Green 92. While older vehicles or vehicles with less efficient engines will be more suitable for using Pertalite.

Will Pertalite Be Replaced by Pertamax Green 92?

The government plans to replace Pertalite with Pertamax Green 92 starting in 2024. This is being done as an effort to reduce air pollution and increase domestic fuel production.

The plan to replace Pertalite with Pertamax Green 92 is still under discussion, including regarding price and subsidies. However, if this plan is approved, consumers will have an option for a more environmentally friendly fuel that contributes to the national economy.
