- lead replacement petrol
- abbr. LRPLead replacement petrol was widely introduced at the start of 1999 in response to EU legislation which prohibited the use of leaded petrol as a mainstream fuel from the end of that year. LRP has an octane rating of RON 97 and uses an additive to provide the valve seat lubrication properties previously provided by lead. By the end of 2002 demand for LRP declined to a very low level and started to be phased out from some filling stations and largely disappeared in 2004.
