Dec 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka's petroleum authority, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) announced that it will import 92 Octane petrol to replace 90 Octane petrol that are currently sold in the local market.

The CPC will import 92 Octane petrol from January 1, 2014.

The Corporation said that there is now a shortage of 90 Octane petrol in the global market and Sri Lanka would therefore shift to 92 Octane petrol.

The CPC added that the 92 Octane petrol is also more environmentally friendly.

However, the 92 Octane petrol will also be sold at the same price as the 90 Octane petrol at present, the CPC said.
