Today, we explain everything.

The different types of fuel in Luxembourg

Advantages and disadvantages of traditional fuels (petrol VS diesel)

Traditional fuels, such as petrol and diesel, have been the preferred choice of motorists for many years. Each type of fuel has its own advantages and disadvantages. 

  • Gasoline is readily available and offers excellent performance in gasoline engines. It is also better suited to smaller vehicles and urban journeys. However, gasoline tends to be more expensive than diesel and has a larger environmental footprint due to its CO2 emissions.
  • Diesel, on the other hand, offers better fuel economy and high torque, making it ideal for heavier vehicles and freeway journeys. However, diesel has been associated with air pollution problems due to its emissions.

Fuel prices in Luxembourg

In the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, fuel prices are regulated. 

Maximum prices for petroleum products are imposed through program contracts signed with companies in the sector.

The GEML association (Groupement Energies Mobilité Luxembourg)made up of the major oil companies operating in Luxembourg (of which we are, of course, a member), also studies the economic and social implications of all forms of energy for mobility.
