Determinations/Other as made
This Determination amends the Fuel Standard (Petrol) Determination 2001 to add a 10 per cent ethanol limit in petrol. This requires a consequential amendment to the oxygen parameter (which was not set for ethanol blends). A 10 per cent ethanol limit is equivalent to 3.5 per cent oxygen. The previous 2.7 per cent oxygen limit is preserved for all grades of petrol not containing ethanol.
