BP is pleased to offer three grades of gasoline at our service stations in Indonesia – BP90, BP92 and BP95. Each contains our special ACTIVE technology formula to help protect your car’s engine against the build-up of dirt. ACTIVE technology is the name we give to our special [dirt-fighting] formula that’s contained in all BP gasoline grades. Its millions of active molecules help protect against dirt build-up by attaching themselves to clean metal surfaces in engines, forming a protective layer which helps stop dirt binding onto the metal.
