High quality Esso gasolines

our fuels section

Esso branded retail gasoline comes in three octane levels and have been developed on a molecular level to help clean vital engine parts by helping to remove harmful deposits from intake valves. This can lead to a smoother-running engine with lower emissions and better fuel economy as compared to gasoline meeting minimum government detergency standards. Actual benefits may vary depending on factors such as vehicle type, driving style and gasoline previously used.

There's an Esso gasoline with the right octane level for your car.

Esso Supreme (at 91 Octane level) is the highest octane gasoline available at Esso stations, and it's offered in most areas across Canada.

Many older and high-performance cars require higher octane levels to improve engine performance and help prevent potentially harmful engine knocks. Also, driving under certain conditions may increase a car's octane requirements from time to time. These include:

  • frequent short trips
  • high temperature
  • high altitude
  • heavy loads

If your car doesn't require a higher octane gasoline, try Esso Extra (with a minimum 89 octane level) or Esso Regular gasoline (with a minimum 87 octane level). No matter which grade of Esso gasoline you use, you can always trust Esso quality.
