The information is from Ticket Log – a logistics and fleet management company – and refers to the end of June. In comparison with the first semester, fossil fuel had an increase of 10% against 4.2% for vegetable fuel. With this result, the number of states in which ethanol is more advantageous compared to gasoline also increased.

How is the calculation done?

To find out where ethanol comes out ahead of gasoline in the price comparison, the survey uses the Ticket Log Price Index (IPTL). In practice, it indicates the cost in reais per kilometer driven, considering the average price of fuel and its consumption.

In the case of alcohol, the value is set at 8.5 km/l, while for gasoline it is 11.5 km/l. In addition to considering the variations due to the vehicle model, it is also placed on the scale that ethanol increases energy consumption by 30%, with oscillations for more or less.

Therefore, it is valid to opt for ethanol only when the difference in price also exceeds, in percentage, the reduction in autonomy.
