Fuel suppliers will replace No. 93 and 97 gasolines — the National IV Standard gasolines currently sold in Shenzhen — with cleaner National V Standard varieties, No. 92 and 95, starting June 22, one week before the fuels will officially be used throughout the city.

For the time being, the new No. 89 gasoline meant to replace the current No. 90 is not available in the Guangdong market.

During the week before July, gas prices will remain unchanged despite the greener fuels being slightly more expensive, its suppliers, Sinopec, PetroChina and CNOOC, said Wednesday.

According to Sinopec Shenzhen, a branch of one of the three major oil supply giants, the benchmark retail prices of the new gasolines will rise by 0.1 yuan (US$0.016) per liter starting July. No. 98 gasoline will remain in use, they added.

CNOOC Shenzhen said five gas stations in Nanshan District will use the new fuels starting June 22 and PetroChina said all its 50 gas stations will use new fuels before July 1.

The city has 280 gas stations, including 50 that are funded by private investments. All gas stations have received notices to use the new fuels.

A total of 14 Guangdong cities, including Shenzhen and Guangzhou, will adopt the new fuel standard starting next month. The practice will be expanded across the whole province starting Oct. 1, according to the provincial industry watchdog. Meanwhile, higher-quality diesel will also be in use in 2015.

The National V Standard tightens the emissions limit and adds a pollution control program called Particle Number to the existing National IV Emissions Standard. Nitrogen oxide emissions from light passenger vehicles will be reduced by 25 to 28 percent and particles by 82 percent, according to the standard.

The National V Standard for automobile gasoline and diesel fuel will be implemented nationwide before the end of 2017.
