FAQs

What is Invigorate®?

Introduced in April 2016, Invigorate® is bp’s exclusive proprietary detergent additive found in all three grades of bp gasoline: bp Regular, bp Silver (midgrade), and Amoco Ultimate® (premium). 


Fuel additives are good! In fact, the US government requires a minimum amount of deposit-control additive to be present in all US fuels — but all grades of bp gasoline with Invigorate® go beyond these minimum standards in an effort to provide additional benefits to drivers who use our fuel.

What does Invigorate® do?

bp gasolines with Invigorate® offers 10 times better protection against intake value deposits and helps clean any deposits left by minimum detergency fuels. What does that mean for you? A cleaner car and more miles with every tank.4


It also protects against sludge, which can build up over time in your engine's motor oil system, preventing oil flow to critical engine parts and can result in catastrophic engine failure.9

Why are you suddenly advertising up to 25 more miles per tank when you've always advertised 3-5 miles per tank before?
Previously, we have advertised the cleanliness benefits of bp gasoline with Invigorate® as it relates to the US car fleet. The new claim of up to 25 more miles per tank is based on full size half ton pickup trucks during highway driving1 and is only applicable to our premium grade, Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate®. We have proven the benefits with an extensive testing program.
I don't have a pickup. / I don't do much highway driving. / I only drive in the city. Will I get the "up to 25 more miles per tank” benefit?
The new claim of up to 25 more miles per tank is based on full size half ton pickup trucks during highway driving1 and is only applicable to our premium grade, Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate®. This benefit of Amoco Ultimate® is intended as the first of a series covering other driving cases and vehicles.
Why is the "up to 25 miles further" claim differentiated?
The 25 MPT claim differentiates Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate® from 87 octane minimum detergent fuel. No other competitor in the marketplace has made a quantitative fuel economy claim of this magnitude.
What is this claim comparing against?
This claim is based on the median fuel economy difference between 93 octane Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate® and 87 octane minimum detergent E10 fuels in late model full size half ton pickup trucks using EPA Highway Driving Cycle (HWFET). 
How did bp land on 25 miles per tank?
This number is based on the median fuel economy difference between 93 octane Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate® and 87 octane minimum detergent E10 fuels in late model full size half ton pickup trucks using EPA Highway Driving Cycle (HWFET). It assumes 100% of fuel in tank will be used.

bp gasolines with Invigorate® help tackle dirt buildup in engines that makes your car feel less responsive and use more fuel.2,4,5 Our dirt-busting fuels remove dirt in your engine and help stop it from building up again. 


With continuous use, bp gasolines with Invigorate® help your engine perform as the manufacturer intended.4 They can give you more miles per tank,2 deliver a smoother drive,8 and help reduce the risk of unplanned and costly visits to the mechanic.9

What are the differences between bp Regular, bp Silver and Amoco Ultimate®?

All bp gasolines contain Invigorate®, our innovative dirt-busting formula, and are proven to help clean away engine dirt as well as helping to stop it forming again.4,5 Our premium fuel, Amoco Ultimate®, contains more Invigorate® and provides faster cleaning than bp Regular and bp Silver. Amoco Ultimate® can also deliver a significant improvement in fuel economy — for full sized half ton pickup trucks up to 25 miles more per tank in highway driving.1


For the best results and optimal fuel economy benefits, we recommend continuous use of Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate®. 

Is the Invigorate® in bp Amoco Ultimate® the same as in bp Regular and bp Silver gasolines?
Yes. All bp gasolines contain our innovative Invigorate® formula and can remove the engine dirt that cannot be prevented by minimum detergent fuels as well as help to stop it forming again.4 Our premium grade, Amoco Ultimate®, contains more Invigorate® and provides faster cleaning than bp Regular and bp Silver.
Do you have to use bp gasolines with Invigorate® all the time to get benefits?
bp gasolines with Invigorate® start working to fight the effects of dirt from the moment you start your engine and over time remove dirt and help protect against its buildup.4,5 However, continuous use is required to help your engine work and keep working as the manufacturer intended. For the best results and optimal fuel economy benefits we recommend you choose our premium grade, Amoco Ultimate® with Invigorate®.4
Do bp gasolines with Invigorate® contain ethanol?
By federal and state regulation, nearly all gasoline sold by retailers in the US has up to 10% ethanol blended into it to comply with the US Renewable Fuel Standards as part of the Energy Independence and Security Act. A small amount of bp stations may sell ethanol-free gasoline (which is labeled accordingly), but this is typically used in off-road vehicles like ATVs or boats.
Can you prove the benefits you claim?
Yes. bp has a long history of conducting in-house performance testing in support of our fuels and lubricants. We spent 5 years developing and rigorously testing bp gasolines with Invigorate®. In this time, we tested our fuels for thousands of hours in engines and vehicles. Additionally, the full size pickup trucks used for this up to 25 miles further per tank campaign have been tested at a respected 3rd party test organization and the results endorsed by an independent engineering consultancy.

At the dispenser flex fuel is clearly labeled “E85” and includes signage that cautions drivers to use this fuel only if they have a FFV vehicle. Check your owner’s manual to confirm whether you have a FFV vehicle that can run on Flex Fuel.

 

Learn more about Flex Fuel Vehicles on the EPA website.

What are biodiesel blends?

Biodiesel blends are standard diesel fuels blended with a biomass component derived from plant oil and animal fats. Just as the government requires ethanol to be blended into gasoline, they also require or promote the blending of renewable biomass components into diesel fuels.


When biomass components are blended at levels between 5 and 20%, the FTC requires that all dispensers be clearly labeled with the following:

 

Many diesel vehicles can run properly on biodiesel blends. However, there are a number of manufacturers whose vehicles do not recommend blends greater than 5%. Please consult your owner’s manual to learn if biodiesel blends greater than 5% are compatible with your vehicle.
