IOC’S Mathura refinery has despatched BS VI high-speed diesel (HSD) to two auto companies to test viability and compatibility as part of its efforts to provide cleaner fuel for an eco-friendly environment.

“Though the Government has set a very stringent target of April 2017 for meeting BS IV and April 2020 for BS VI standard fuel quality, the Mathura refinery has completed the target ahead of the set deadline,” said S M Vaidya, GM, IOC Mathura Refinery.

While Honda was supplied five barrels of BS VI standard HSD fuel, Mahindra & Mahindra Chennai received the same full one tanker (20 KL). Vaidya said: “BS VI standard HSD will contain only 10 PPM sulphur and motor spirit will be high standard also... since MS VI is also ready for testing, the refinery is having an interaction with automobile companies on this count.”
