Motor Gasoline
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

European Commission - Eurostat
Motor gasoline consists of a mixture of light hydrocarbons distilling between 35oC and 215oC. It is used as a fuel for land based spark ignition engines. Motor gasoline may include additives, oxygenates and octane enhancers, including lead compounds such as TEL (tetraethyl lead) and TML (tetramethyl lead).

This category includes motor gasoline blending components (excluding additives/oxygenates), e.g. alkylates, isomerate, reformate, cracked gasoline destined for use as finished motor gasoline.

Motor gasoline is the principal fuel used in the transport/road sector and accounts for some 25% of total oil use in the world. In some countries, for example in the US, motor gasoline consumption is almost half of total oil consumption.

Motor gasoline is a complex mixture of relatively volatile hydrocarbons used for sparkignition internal combustion engines. Gasoline is produced in refineries as the result of primary distillation of crude oil and then further processing, including changing the molecular structure, until the required specifications are met. The characteristics of the gasoline produced depend on the type of crude oil that is used and the setup of the refinery at which it is produced.

Motor gasoline may include some quantities of additives and blending components to improve fuel properties such as e.g. octane number, stability and deposit formation in engines.

UNSD Energy Statistics Section
Light hydrocarbon oil for use in internal combustion engines such as motor vehicles, excluding aircraft. It distills between 35oC and 200oC, and is treated to reach a sufficiently high octane number of generally between 80 and 100 RON.

Treatment may be by reforming, blending with an aromatic fraction, or the addition of benzole or other additives (such as tetraethyl lead).
