The Ultimate Fuel for the Ultimate Toys

The Ultimate Fuel for the Ultimate Toys

BP Ultimate is the proud naming sponsor of the 2005 BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys motor show, running in Auckland from November 11 – 13.

Big Boys Toys is New Zealand’s premier annual motorshow, displaying the cutting edge of international vehicles and motoring technology. Last year more than 52,000 New Zealanders visited the show.

BP Ultimate Spokesperson, Sally Inkster, said the link between the quality of vehicles on display and BP’s 98 octane premium Ultimate fuel made the event a perfect fit.

“Since the new formulation of BP Ultimate was rolled out to 106 sites across the North and South Islands earlier this year we have had a fantastic response from the motoring public – especially motoring enthusiasts and those who want to get the best from their cars.

“Big Boys Toys brings together the very latest and most exclusive vehicles from around the world. These vehicles require high-performance fuel and BP Ultimate is the best fuel we have ever sold in New Zealand,” she said.

Ms Inkster said BP would be using the event to highlight the latest findings from fuel trials comparing BP Ultimate to other premium fuels.

“The recent fuel trial programme carried out by BP has been the biggest New Zealand-based fuel trial in around 30 years and we think motoring enthusiasts will be really interested in the latest results.”

Ms Inkster said the new test data would demonstrate the significant engine cleaning properties of BP Ultimate, and the performance benefits of the 98 octane fuel.

“BP Ultimate is the only 98 octane fuel available across both the North and South Islands. With four times the level of cleaning additive of most regular fuels, BP Ultimate can help clean up existing engine deposits and helps keep a clean engine as clean as new.”

Ms Inkster said many people were surprised at how quickly deposits could form on critical engine components through the use of regular fuels that have no cleaning additive.

She said in an environment of higher fuel prices it was important to continue to demonstrate the advantages of BP Ultimate.

“The higher octane combined with a cleaner engine gives smoother acceleration and can help vehicles perform at their optimum level,” she said.

“BP Ultimate has been designed for motorists who want to get the very best from their cars.

“Whether these are the cars on display at Big Boys Toys or your everyday vehicle, all cars can benefit from BP Ultimate. We will be proving this to motorists at Big Boys Toys.”
