Better for people, better for your machine, better for the environment.
Hertfordshire Garden Machinery are proud stockists of Aspen fuel. Aspen Fuel is an alkylate fuel, a synthetically produced petrol component, made in oil refineries from excess gases produced in the distillation of crude oil and oil cracking.
It’s better for people because it’s virtually free from sulphur, benzene and solvents, which makes it less harmful than regular petrol. You are breathing much cleaner air while working, and with these ingredients removed, the headache-inducing odour is minimized, freeing you to work without fear of headaches.
Your engine is also better-off, as Aspen keeps your machines protected both in-use and in storage, making starting easier, giving maximum performance, and staying fresh for years. Aspen is also free of ethanol, a compound found in normal petrol known to cause harm to small petrol engines, meaning your machine is more reliable and lasts longer with Aspen.
Aspen also contains significantly less harmful and toxic hydrocarbons, which reduces the impact your machinery makes on the environment.
Garden Maintenance, Landscaping & Forestry:
First and foremost, Aspen offers perfect performance for machines such as lawnmowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, brush cutters, leaf blowers. These sectors currently make up the main volume of Aspen used in the UK, through both domestic and professional users.
Did you know that a chainsaw running on ordinary pump fuel emits as much benzene emissions as 57 cars? Benzene is a carcinogenic substance and as an operator of these types of construction equipment, it is important for your health to avoid exposure as much as possible. Aspen fuel is virtually benzene free and by simply switching fuel, you can reduce the number of benzene emissions from your machine by up to 108 times! Available as a pre-mixed 2 stroke fuel. Aspen can help avoid the most common and expensive mistake when using 2-stroke machines – forgetting to add oil to the fuel mix causing engines to seize up.
Site safety is at the forefront of all construction work now and the storage and use of petrol powered equipment is under heavier scrutiny than ever before. Using Aspen Fuel is one way that you can improve your site safety credentials whilst extending the service life of your tools and omitting the risk of the wrong fuel mixture being used potentially leading to the failure of your machinery.
Did you know that 25% of the fuel from thousands of older outboard motors remains unburnt and goes straight into lakes, rivers and waterways? When you use Aspen alkylate petrol, you reduce harmful hydrocarbons in emissions by up to 99%. It might sound incredible, but the figures speak for themselves: Using regular petrol results in 300 times as many pollutants ending up in the water compared to when you use Aspen. Aspen alkylate petrol is not just cleaner, it is also a more efficient fuel. In addition, you don’t need to empty the tank over the winter and the engine will start more easily when the time comes to launch your boat.
Aspen alkylate petrol is the ideal fuel for models with petrol engines. Virtually all petrol models use two-stroke engines. Aspen alkylate contains a 50:1 mix of fully synthetic oil of the highest quality and stays fresh for years resulting in easy starting and clean running engines. Aspen also has the advantage that it is virtually odourless. This means when the models are transported in the car or worked on at home, there are no nasty fuel smells. For models requiring a specific oil or mix ratio, you can use Aspen 4 as an ideal replacement for petrol, and mix your own choice of oil according to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Aspen 4 is the perfect fuel for all types of stoves and lanterns which are designed to be able to work on regular “pump fuel” or multi-stove fuel. The bonus is an increase in performance, no smell due to much less toxic emissions and less maintenance on your stove/lantern. In addition to your camping stoves you can also run a portable generator to power your electronic devices whilst off grid.
