Gazprom Neft introduces new G-Drive 98 fuel

Gazprom Neft has launched sale of a new premium-grade 98 octane fuel under the G-Drive brand name in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Krasnodar Krai. Before the end of the year, this premium-grade gasoline will be available at Gazpromneft gas stations in Novosibirsk, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Kemerovo, and Tyumen Oblasts, as well as Krasnoyarsk Krai and Khanty-Mansi and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs.

G-Drive 98 hi-tech fuel with enhanced properties contains components developed by leading international experts in the area of improving the efficiency of engine operation. An active complex of additives increases the engine’s power, improves the automobile’s acceleration, removes deposits from the fuel system and prevents them from reappearing, and also cuts fuel consumption.

The customers in Yekaterinburg and Sverdlovsk Oblast, where sales of G-Drive 98 fuel began as part of a pilot project in early 2013, gave the premium-grade fuel a high rating.

“Based on the results of the pilot project, we made the decision to begin selling G-Drive 98 across the country in order to provide our customers with a new, high-quality fuel. Ninety-five octane G-Drive has been sold at Gazpromneft gas stations in Russia for over two years. At gas stations where G-Drive 95 octane gasoline is sold, the share of that fuel in sales is over 30 percent. I am confident that motorists throughout Russia will give G-98 the recognition it deserves as well,” commented Gazprom Neft Regional Sales Director Alexander Krylov.
