Audi learned to make racing gasoline from wasteOctober 5, 2019
50% of the new type of fuel consists of high-quality renewable components derived from waste. The novelty will be presented at the last stage of the German DTM racing series in German Hockenheim.
The German company Audi, which intends to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30 percent by 2025, came up with low-carbon gasoline to realize this positive goal. The brand’s partner was Aral, a fuel and engine oil manufacturer. The Audi model lineup has a large number of cars with conventional ICEs, and replacing traditional fuel with a new innovative one will help make them greener. The Aral fuel proposed is exactly half composed of components that have been recovered from the waste. It corresponds to the Aral Ultimate 102 racing gasoline, which has been successfully used in the DTM series for 14 years.
When comparing conventional gasoline and low-carbon fuels, the latter can immediately reduce CO 30 emissions by 30 percent.
In the DTM finals in Hockenheim, they promise to organize the debut of two racing RS 5 DTMs, for the performance of which the new fuel is responsible. The first car will be driven by Emerson Fittipaldi, and the winner of the Le Mans Benoit Trelayer will drive the second car. Under the hood of the car is the same 610-horsepower two-liter TFSI DTM “turbo four”, since the transition to a new fuel did not entail an alteration of the engine.
