The central province of Quang Ngai has officially marketed E5, a blend of 5-10 percent ethanol and 90-95 percent traditional gasoline since September 1.
Quang Ngai is the first province in the country to deliver the bio blend to replace the traditional A92 gasoline in the country.
Mr. Nguyen Hung Ho, chairman cum director of the Vietnam National Petroleum Group in Quang Ngai, said that petrol businesses have stocked over 2 million liters of E5 gasoline to supply filling stations in the province.
Dung Quat Oil Refinery is able to meet E5 gasoline demand in the province, said Mr. Nguyen Hoai Giang, chairman of the refinery’s operator Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Ltd Company.
The price of A5 gasoline is equal to that of A92 gasoline, he said.
