FCA and Eni have developed the new fuel A20
Within the scope of the agreement signed in November 2017, FCA and Eni have teamed up to develop A20, a new fuel with a low level of emissions due to its 15% methanol and 5% bio-ethanol alcohol content.
The new alternative fuel emits up to 3% less in CO2 exhaust emissions quantified using the new WLTP Test Procedures.
The formula was designed to make this fuel compatible with the majority of petrol cars sold from 2001 onwards, which accounts for more than 60% of the petrol cars in Italy.
An initial test run of five Fiat 500s from the Eni Enjoy fleet in Milan ended successfully a few weeks ago. The cars were rented out about 9,000 times and travelled for 50 thousand kilometres during the 13 months of the test without experiencing any problems.
