What gas stations are best for refueling in Ukraine

What gas stations are best for refueling in Ukraine

Despite the fact that there are a huge number of gas stations on the roads of Ukraine, not all of them have fuel that meets international standards. When refueling with low-quality gasoline, your vehicle can quickly fail and require expensive repairs. In this case, it is almost impossible to prove that the cause was precisely the fuel, and it is almost impossible to bring the negligent owners of the gas station to responsibility. To prevent your vehicle from becoming a "victim" of low-quality fuel, you need to study the gas station market in Ukraine in advance.

Company Narscars analyzed open databases, information in the media, and also asked the opinion of experts in order to collect the most reliable information about the gas station. As a result, we have compiled a rating of the filling stations that provide the highest quality fuel.

Gas stations rating

When compiling this rating, the statistics of the Ukrainian Institute of Consumer Expertise was used, which regularly checks the quality of fuel at various filling stations. Scientists of this particular institute were the first to notice that surrogates appeared on the Ukrainian market that did not differ much in appearance from ordinary fuel, both at first glance and during special tests. Despite the visual similarity, low-quality fuel, unlike normal fuel, can significantly worsen the reliability of the car, reduce its cross-country ability and even disable the engine.

When is issued car rental in Lviv, Kiev, Odessa or any other city, employees of reputable car rental companies, such as Narscars, warn tenants that they should only refuel their rented vehicles with high-quality fuel. They also provide a list of recommended fillings. At the filling stations from the indicated rating, the fuel samples taken turned out to be of high quality, so it is safe to refuel at them both for your own car and for rented vehicles.

TOP-10 filling stationswith quality fuel looks like this:

  1. WOG. This is one of the most extensive gas station networks in Ukraine. It imports fuel from Romania, Belarus and Lithuania. A distinctive feature is a large number of gas stations throughout the country, even in its most remote corners, and a convenient loyalty system that allows you to exchange points for additional gasoline. The imported fuel is checked even on the territory of the exporting country, then at the border, at oil depots and before shipment to a specific filling station.
  2. KLO. Most of the points of this network are located in the central part of the country. They sell various brands of gasoline, gas, diesel and Eurodiesel. Fuel is imported from Europe.
  3. ОККО. This network includes more than 4 hundred filling stations throughout Ukraine. The OKKO brand is the property of the Galnaftogaz concern, which is the largest importer and distributor of oil products in the country. The company imports fuel that meets the Euro-5 standard from Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Belarus.
  4. SOCAR.This is a relatively small network of gas stations owned by a company from Azerbaijan. Through it, not imported fuel is sold, but fuel of its own production, which is supplied to Ukraine from Azerbaijan.
  5. SHELL. These are network gas stations. They are owned by the British company Royal Dutch Shell and are located in all major cities of our country. The British themselves extract gas, oil and process these raw materials into fuel that meets the Euro-5 standard.
  6. AMIC.These filling stations were bought by the Austrian concern from the Lukoil company. They sell Belarusian and Lithuanian fuel, as well as gasoline from Ukrtatnafta and gas from Ukrgazvydobuvannya. Low-quality gasoline was found at some gas stations, but this is more the exception than the rule.
  7. БРСМ. This is a Ukrainian networker. The quality of the products sold is constantly checked by the Institute of Consumer Expertise. There are BRSM filling stations all over the country.
  8. UPG. This is a local networker owned by Ukrpaletsystem. Initially, the company itself produced and sold oil, but after opening filling points, it began to sell oil products from Belarus. The company tests the fuel itself, without involving external experts in the verification.
  9. УКРНАФТА. These are filling stations belonging to the Ukrainian holding Naftogaz of Ukraine. In total, there are about 500 points of this brand in the country, where fuel of its own production is sold.
  10. GLUSCO. This is a network of filling points owned by Glusco Energy from Switzerland. Most of its filling stations are located in the metropolitan area and in the south of the country. Belarusian and Lithuanian fuel is sold here.

Gas stations that you shouldn't visit

High-quality fuel must comply with the Euro-5 standard, its use allows you to fully unleash the potential of the car and save the environment. Such fuel must have an octane number of at least 85 units, and for more powerful engine models - over 95 units. Sulfur in it should be no more than 10 mg / l, benzene - no more than 1%, and the content of aromatic hydrocarbons and amines in general should be minimized.

Studies have shown that gasoline at large chain filling stations complies with the Euro-5 standard, but Extra, Motor, Petromol fuel does not even reach the Euro-2 standard. Alcohol was detected in samples from these gas stations. Although bioethanol makes fuel cheaper, with prolonged use of the petroleum product containing it, the engine resource is rapidly reduced.Low octane, overestimated sulfur and benzene content were found in fuel from Avantage, Marshall filling stations. Thus, the company Narscars, which provides car rental services throughout Ukraine, does not recommend refueling at the gas stations of these networks.

Сonclusions

At chain filling stations, the cost of fuel may be slightly higher than at private little-known filling stations, but studies have shown that, unlike private traders, large networkers really monitor the quality of the fuel they sell. Whatever the age of the car, its model or mileage, always fill it with only high-quality fuel, and be sure that it will serve you faithfully for more than a dozen years.
