The company y told OGRA that to meet its standards Research Octane Number (RON), the oil companies in Pakistan were adding manganese.

Now the report of OGRA has suggested that the claims of Honda were valid as the oil importers and refineries are using chemicals to increase the RON of petrol.

OGRA and Hydrocarbon Development Institute of Pakistan (HDIP) have carried sample test which showed an excessive presence of chemicals in petrol. The sample test of local oil manufacturing companies has been made to public.

The OGRA report revealed that to increase the quality of otherwise a low quality petroleum product the oil manufacturer companies in Pakistan are using harmful chemicals which is not only damaging the engines of vehicles but also harmful for humans as well.

Honda’s claim has also supported by Hascol petroleum. The company told that many refineries and oil companies in Pakistan are using Ferrocene to achieve the desired RON 90 and 92 standards. The mixture of additives like MMT and Ferrocene in petrol is resulting in damage to the engines, emission systems, spark plugs and fuel injectors.

Shahid | category: News

Exchange Rate Erosion To Make Petrol, Gas Costly: APCNGA. Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha, central leader All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) on Monday said bringing down the value of rupee against the US dollar will hike the price of petrol and gas, the largest import item.
The flight of dollar will increase poverty and jack up the cost of all projects including the economic corridor, he said in a statement issued here.

He said energy is the largest import item and erosion in the exchange rate will boost its price which has been already increasing in the international market.
Ghiyas Paracha said the price of oil and gas will be increased by seven to ten percent if the fall of rupee was continued, adding that it will damage industrial and agricultural production and almost every citizen of the country, therefore, the decision to weaken the rupee should be taken back.
He said that local currency is being compromised to please IMF and exporters who have become addicted to packages and devaluation. He said the export sector should not seek aid from the government but improve its competitiveness while government should not compromise the interests of masses to please few sectors.
APCNGA leader said that economic problems require attention and reforms as obtaining loans from debt market and devaluation currency will give temporary relief while masses will see the loss in the savings and the cost of debt servicing will increase by trillions of rupees.

He said that government has repeatedly announced to keep exchange rate stable and contradicted news regarding devaluation as rumours but now it continues to fall which is beyond understanding.
