OMV MaxxMotion Performance Fuels
Whether diesel or gasoline, OMV MaxxMotion delivers maximum performance, thanks to a clean combustion process. Special, innovative additive formulas keep the engine clean, reduce wear and prolong the engine’s lifespan in the long run. This is even more important during winter time for Diesel drivers. As a high-quality performance fuel, OMV MaxxMotion Diesel enables a reliable engine start, in all winter conditions.
Plugin-Hybrid (PHEV) and Battery Electric vehicles (BEV) are gaining more and more importance as an alternative to internal combustion engines. To make travelling and charging as convenient as possible OMV is offering charging points on 77 filling stations.
CNG (compressed natural gas) can be used as fuel for both, cars and commercial vehicles. CNG vehicles operate much like gasoline-powered vehicles with spark-ignited internal combustion engines. Natural gas is stored compressed to around 200 bar in a fuel tank, or cylinder, typically at the back of the vehicle.
Propane, also known as LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), or propane autogas, is an alternative fuel that can be used for cars as well as for heavy duty vehicles. There are two types of propane vehicles: dedicated and bi-fuel. Dedicated propane vehicles are designed to run only on propane. Bi-fuel vehicles have two separate fueling systems, enabling the vehicle to run on either propane or gasoline.
The natural gas is super-cooled up to -161°C and cryogenically stored in liquid form, usually in a tank on the side of the truck. LNG is typically a more expensive option than compressed natural gas (CNG) and is most often used in heavy-duty vehicles to meet longer range requirements.
Hydrogen has the potential to be an important, safe, low-carbon transport fuel, particularly for heavy-duty transport such as trucks, buses and shipping. However, it also can be used in fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), where it is stored onboard in a hydrogen fuel tank. In that case the hydrogen is used to produce electricity via the fuel cell to power an electric motor.
