ASPEN PETROL – What is our verdict?

We at Macroom Tool Hire & Sales say ‘YES’ to ASPEN Alkylate Petrol.

‘It is better for the user, the engine and the environment’

  • Aspen is available as straight fuel for four-stroke engines or mixed for two-stroke engines, which is extremely handy.
  • 4-Stroke Petrol is used for any machine whose engines remains level during use i.e. lawnmowers, generators etc.. whereas 2-Stroke Petrol must be used for any machines that will be tilted during use i.e. hedge trimmers,  chainsaws etc…

Aspen 2 is a pre-mixed 2-stroke alkylate petrol which avoids ‘mixing mess’ and gives the user the  reassurance of knowing that the mix is exactly 50:1 every time. It contains 2% fully synthetic biodegradable 2-stroke oil and is suitable for machines such as chainsaws, strimmers, hedgetrimmers and other air cooled 2-stroke engines.

  • Pre-mixed so no ‘mixing mess’ and no possibility of mixing at the wrong ratio.
  • 3 – 5 year shelf life so no more ‘stale’ fuel problems and wasting old fuel.
  • Significantly less harmful ingredients than ordinary petrol which results in fewer harmful emissions making Aspen 2 better for the user and better for the environment.
  • Cleaner running so fewer deposits build up inside the engine.
  • You can purchase Aspen 2 Stroke in our store – a 5 Litre container is €22.50 & a 1 Litre container is €5.50

Aspen 4 is a 4-stroke alkylate petrol for use in 4-stroke lawnmowers, tillers, blowers, brushcutters and other land-based 4-stroke engines. (It is also a great alternative fuel for camping stoves and lanterns.)

  • 3 – 5 year shelf life so no more ‘stale’ fuel problems and wasting old fuel.
  • Significantly less harmful ingredients than ordinary petrol which results in fewer harmful emissions making Aspen 4 better for the user and the environment.
  • Cleaner running so fewer deposits build up inside the engine.
  • You can purchase Aspen 4 Stroke in our store – a 5 Litre container is €22.50 & 1 Litre container is €5.50

5 Litre Containers & 1 Litre Containers

Here are our 4 REASONS for giving ASPEN 2-Stroke & 4-Stroke a major thumbs up. (and for stocking it in our store) 

1. HEALTH REASONS – Aspen produces 99% lower air emissions than ordinary petrol making it safer for the user. The exhaust fumes are cleaner and health risks are dramatically reduced. You can now use a two-stroke machine indoors in the knowledge that there is a massive reduction in harmful fumes. Our customers often comment on how much better they feel after using machines run on Aspen compared to machines run on ordinary petrol.

2. THE ENVIRONMENT – Compared to regular petrol Aspen alkylate petrol gives out a substantially reduced amount of substances which lowers the formation of ground level ozone which is harmful to humans, animals and plants.

3. SHELF LIFE – Aspen alkylate petrol has a lifespan of approximately 10 times that of regular petrol. Regular Petrol dies after 3-5 months of storage whereas Aspen last up to 5 years.  This means that you can put your machines away for the winter without having to drain the tank and knowing that they will start without a problem come spring. My own lawnmower started up on the first pull for me this year all because of the Aspen Petrol.

4. THE ENGINE – A cleaner fuel means; Engines last longer. Carburettors don’t gum up. No dirt or water in the fuel. Machines start easier. Less risk of seized engines.

Mar Eolas: If you have regular petrol left in the tank you can fill it up with Aspen petrol, they can be mixed.

The Cost: Aspen Petrol is a little more expensive but it is worth it in the long run. The  process to produce Aspen is a much more advanced and expensive process which only a few refineries in the world can produce it. So the availability of alkylate petrol is limited.
