In India, fuel pumps usually sell three categories of petrol;

• Normal (unleaded)

• Premium petrol (Power, Speed, and Extra mile, Turbojet or Hi-speed)

• High octane petrol (Speed octane)

You can note here that Power is a kind of premium petrol and normal is unleaded. The main difference between regular and power fuel is that power or premium fuels have a higher number of octane. Usually, in the country, different kinds of petrol have different numbers of octane. Regular petrol or unleaded petrol has octane ratings of 87 typically. In midgrade petrol, the number of octanes varies from 88 to 90. In premium or PoWer petrol, there is a higher number of octane, i.e. 91 to 94.
