So far, 262 out of 518 filling stations in the city have attended the program.

However, Ron 92 and Ron 95 gasoline accounts for 95.8 percent of the total consumption output of 130,100 cubic meters a month.

According to plan, the blend will be available at 100 percent filling stations in the city by the end of this month.

The Department of Industry and Trade said it has positively worked with wholesale businesses to boost E5 gasoline consumption. However the sold output has fallen behind business targets because consumers have still hesitated about using the new fuel.
