Energy said good stocks of 95 octane fuel into Auckland were continuing to be trucked and there should be no concern for Z’s 95 octane customers.
Z’s corporate communications manager, Jonathan Hill, said in the early stages of the refinery outage the company prioritised delivery of the two essential product grades into Auckland, being 91 octane petrol and diesel.
Ninety per cent of petrol vehicles can run on 91.
As a result of this deliberate focus, four service stations ran out of 95 octane petrol yesterday. There may be a few more today but all grades of fuel are being trucked into the city and there is no cause for concern.
Jonathan Hill said following progress from government around trucking limits Z was looking forward to being able to further expand trucking of all grades into Auckland.
