Go with Esso unleaded gasoline – it’s TOP TIER®

TOP TIER is a standard of gasoline that contains higher levels of detergent additives than the Canadian Government Standards Board (CGSB) currently requires. The CGSB requires that all gasolines marketed in Canada contain detergents, which are added to gasoline to help clean fuel injectors, intake valves and other engine parts. The TOP TIER standard is set by a governing body of several automakers and is recommended in their vehicles’ owner manuals.

Esso gasoline contains more detergents than the minimum quantity required by the CGSB and has passed other performance tests, such as deposit control on intake valves and fuel injectors, resulting in it being certified TOP TIER.*

FAQs about fuel

While diesel and gasoline are both derived from crude oil, they work in two different ways and are not interchangeable. Diesel fuel is designed to operate in a diesel engine, where it is injected into compressed, high-temperature air in the combustion chamber and ignites spontaneously. This differs from gasoline, which is ignited in a gasoline engine by the spark plugs. It is essential that you put the right type of fuel in your vehicle.
Yes! Detergents are added to gasoline to help clean vital engine parts, including fuel injectors and intake valves. A gasoline detergent is a lot like a household detergent, helping to prevent any harmful deposit buildup.
When you purchase fuel at an Esso-branded service station you can be sure it meets the quality standards that Esso applies from manufacture through distribution, all the way to you. All our gasolines are developed to help clean vital engine parts like intake valves by removing harmful deposits, which can lead to better fuel economy.*
Generally, regular gasoline will be fine. If the engine is 2-cycle (as commonly found for chain saws or edge trimmers), then 2-cycle oil will be required in the fuel. Consult your owner’s manual for a recommendation.
