# With gasoline at R$10, filling up with ethanol is worth it in 5 states

Fuel prices do not stop rising and gasoline accumulates four consecutive weeks of readjustments.

There are already places, such as the municipality of General Thaumaturgo, in Acre, where the cost of a liter of oil derivative is already over R$ 10.

Ethanol also continues to become more expensive and is the most advantageous option over gasoline in five Brazilian states, considering average prices – they were seven in March.

Flex-fuel car owners who choose fuel extracted from sugarcane will spend less money for each kilometer driven in Goiás, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Piauí.

The above data were exclusively passed on to **UOL Cars **by the logistics and fleet management company Ticket Log.

“As at the end of March, the highest average price for gasoline at the end of April was recorded in Piauí, at R$ 8,150, while the lowest was verified in Amapá, for R$ 6,943”, analyzes Douglas pina, general director of the fleet and mobility division of Edenred Brasil – owner of TicketLog.

According to the executive, Pará was responsible for the highest average cost of ethanol, at R$ 6,685. The cheapest ethanol was sold in São Paulo, on average at R$ 5,097.

Check below the survey of the logistics company with the average prices of the two fuels throughout the national territory.

## How is the calculation done?

The definition of the states where ethanol is more advantageous is based on the IPTL (Ticket Log Price Index).

The index shows the cost in reais per kilometer driven, taking into account the average price of a 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 variations depending on the vehicle.

It is necessary to consider that the fuel of vegetal origin increases the consumption in approximately 30%, with variation downwards or upwards. For this reason, it is only worth using ethanol when the difference in price outweighs the reduction in autonomy in percentage terms.
