Gulf Pro Fuels FAQ
Gulf Pro Fuels has been developed as an alternative fuel to pump petrol, for use in all small 2 stroke and 4 stroke spark ignition engines. Gulf Pro Fuel is an ‘alkylate fuel’ made in a special process which produces a clean burning fuel similar in combustion properties to petrol but without the dangerous substances such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons. Gulf Pro Fuel also stays fresh for many years unlike petrol which goes stale in a matter of a few months. In short, it is an ‘environmental fuel’
Gulf Pro Fuels are made in Europe
The main ingredient of Gulf Pro Fuels fuel is Alkylate. Alkylate is the purest form of petroleum. We hand blend the Alkylate product with other components to form Gulf Pro Fuels.
