Ethanol, on the other hand, sells for an average of R$4.95 – 17% cheaper than in June and 9.90% less than in July.

“Across Brazil, the average value of gasoline fell in August and closed below $6, except for the states of Pará, Roraima and Tocantins, which, despite the decline, averaged R$6.12, BRL 6.49 and R$6.07. ., respectively,” reported Douglas Pena, General Manager of Mainstream Fleet & Mobility Division Edenred Brasil, owner of Ticket Log.

Below, check out the logistics company’s survey of average prices between August 1 and 31.

How is the calculation done?

The definition of where ethanol is most beneficial is based on the IPTL (Indicator Ticket Price Index).

The indicator shows the cost in riyals per km driven, taking into account the average price per liter of fuel and average consumption – fixed at 8.5 km / l for alcohol and 11.5 km / l for gasoline. Of course, there are differences depending on the vehicle.

It is necessary to consider that fuel of vegetable origin increases consumption by about 30%, with a variance of lower or higher. For this reason, it is worth using ethanol only when the difference in price exceeds the decrease in autonomy in percentage terms.
