AGO- AUTOMOTIVE GAS OIL

7a34.jpg

AGO (Automotive Gas Oil) is the fuel of heavy vehicles such as heavy construction machines, trucks, buses and other commercial vehicles. Unlike light fuels, AGO has a high calorific value and is a type of fuel that can burn at high temperatures and pressures. AGO is a product of crude oil that originates in oil refineries. Petroleum is separated by a process called distillation and different petroleum products are obtained at different temperatures. AGO is produced by distilling a medium fraction from crude oil. AGO has a thicker and heavier structure compared to other types of oil. Therefore, AGO is a fuel suitable for larger engines of heavy vehicles. AGO has a high enough combustion temperature to allow engines to operate at high temperatures. AGO, like other petroleum products, also raises environmental concerns. Combustion may cause harmful emissions such as CO2, SOx and NOx. However, AGO has a lower sulfur content than lighter fuels, resulting in a lower SOx emission level. AGO is the main fuel for heavy vehicles and plays an important role in the transport sector. However, due to environmental concerns, the transportation industry is working to switch to more environmentally friendly alternative fuels.
