Fiji to lift fuel standard

October 1, 2015 5:00 am

Fiji will soon raise the standard of fuel it uses.

Minister for Trade Faiyaz Koya says government is in the process of moving into a higher fuel standard, most probably Euro 4 or Euro 5.

Speaking at the launch of the 2016 new Ford Ranger XLT last night, Koya said the new vehicle is an indication of the progress of the motor vehicle industry in Fiji.

He says the high efficiency vehicle augurs well with government’s initiative to encourage more fuel efficient vehicles that would contribute towards reducing fuel consumption.

Koya says, with newer models of vehicles, better quality fuel is required.

" Therefore to move with the improving vehicle technology and to reduce vehicle emissions the Fijian government is in the process of involving itself into moving into a higher fuel standard which maybe a Euro 4 or Euro 5. Cleaner fuel means reduced maintenance cost of vehicles and improved performance and efficiency and in the long run reduces fuel consumption and most importantly reduces emissions of green house gasses."

Euro 4 or Euro 5 will basically see Fiji set the average carbon emission target for all vehicles that will run on roads.
