Continuing the fight against petrol sniffing

Date posted: 8 November 2010

From early December Opal fuel will be available in Kakadu National Park. The fuel will retail for the same price as unleaded petrol. The Kakadu rollout is a part of the Australian Government's commitment to tackle petrol sniffing, which includes the rollout of Opal fuel to at least 39 new retail sites across the NT, WA and QLD. There are presently 106 sites around Australia where Opal fuel is available. Information days will be conducted from November 22 across Darwin and the Kakadu National Park to assure motorists that it is safe to use Opal in car and boat engines and to highlight the benefits to communities of reducing the harms of petrol sniffing.
