Fiji Gas has completed the construction of the first auto gas station in Vanua Levu and saw the opening this week.

The new development is situated beside Basrath Din Service Station, Y-Corner on Nasekula Road in Labasa adjacent to the Y-Corner Service Station.

The auto gas site is a joint venture between Fiji Gas and Labasa Fuel Distributors.

Fiji Gas National Operations manager, Max Olsson, said he was pleased to have his team construct the first auto gas station in Vanua Levu.

“This is a milestone achievement for Fiji Gas and we are extremely proud of this contribution we have made to the economy in Labasa as well as to the people of Labasa,” Mr Olsson said.

“Vanua Levu is known for its pristine environment, untouched scenery and large farmlands and this is what we want to protect.

“With the introduction of our auto gas to Labasa, the clean fuel is now available to everyone and is our mark of commitment to providing all of Fiji with a clean alternative fuel, a fuel that is safe for our environment.”

Basrath Din Service Station managing director, Saifud Din, said he was very happy contributing to his very own home town and helping the people have access to this auto gas station without having to travel down to Malau which is outside Labasa Town.

“Vehicle owners in Labasa will now have a cleaner fuel alternative. We are extremely proud of be able to provide this option to our customers,” he said.

Mr Din, originally from Valebasoga, Labasa was very much excited and said the station would be in operation for 24 hours.

“There will be an attendant based at the station who will assist drivers and will refill their vehicle with gas,” he said

“I am very thankful to Fiji Gas for their partnership, all the equipment and setup was done by them.”

Mr Din said the official opening of this auto gas station will be held next week on the day he would observe his late father’s 40 days of prayer.

The father of three children operates businesses such service stations, bakery, stone crusher and fuel Distribution Company in seven different locations in Vanua Levu.
