Gold Course This course is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of current and future gasoline technology including manufacture, blending, specification, performance, environmental aspects and the use of additives. There will be a practical case study on a gasoline blending exercise for delegates to solve in syndicates.

What You Will Learn

  • How to describe gasoline manufacture, blending, specification, performance and the use of additives
  • How to blend gasoline by understanding current and future gasoline technology
  • How to examine environmental/green fuel issues

Please Note: This course, along with Automotive Diesel Fuels - Fuel Manufacture, Product Quality, Engine Design and the Potential for Additives (RF6), is no longer offered on a public basis. These two courses are offered for on-site training only.

For public presentation these courses have been replaced with Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Technology (GDT1).
