Automotive / Cars & Trucks
Finnish term or phrase: jäärap
The term appears on a company expenses claim form. It concerns a visit to a petrol/service station:
"Statoil 37,98 l + jäärap"

The obvious suggestions are anti-freeze and de-icer but I can't think of any suitable words that would be abbreviated in this way.
