We all know by now that Z (and most of our competitors) offer what most refer to as ‘premium fuel’ and I’m sure we are all guilty of not using it because it is more expensive than good old 91octane. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with using 91 which is also a high quality product, there's a reason we offer a ‘premium fuel’.

ZX is for Kiwi drivers who want a top quality fuel that helps deliver superior performance. We worked with BASF, one of the world's leading fuel additive manufacturers and selected ZX’s additive specifically for New Zealand driving conditions.

How ZX works

ZX features both a friction modifier and a cleaning additive. The friction modifier helps improve engine efficiency by reducing friction between the cylinder liner and piston rings. The cleaning additive helps remove performance-robbing deposits on the inlet valves, helping improve your car’s responsiveness. Together it helps improve your engine efficiency and overall performance. Check out our Burning Valves video to see ZX in action.

The ZX Factor

Our premium 95 octane fuel:

• Contains a high performance multi-functional additive package selected to meet the demands of NZ motorists and perform in New Zealand driving conditions.

• Cleans up your engine and helps keep it clean.

• Has a friction modifier to help improve engine efficiency.

• Helps remove power-robbing deposits from engine inlet valves and prevents them from building up.

ZX is a 95 octane fuel that can be used in any petrol engine that can operate on unleaded 95 octane or lower. Most petrol vehicles in New Zealand can use ZX, however if you’re not sure of your vehicle’s minimum octane requirements, please check with your the vehicle manufacturer.
