TOTAL has launched into the Fijian market a new line of specific fuels expected to clean engines and provide lasting protection.

The TOTAL Excellium New Generation is said to ensure better performance, uses less fuel and produces few polluting emissions.

TOTAL (Fiji) Limited managing director, Martin McCarthy, said vehicles have evolved immensely in recent years in order to adapt to new emission control standards.

“New engines are therefore more and more demanding concerning the fuel they used (temperature and high pressures),” he said.

“Fuel development must continuously cope with the needs of every engine and of every technology, whether old or new.”

Mr McCarthy said in order to meet these changing requirements, TOTAL decided to adapt its products.

“The new line of TOTAL Excellium premium fuels addresses this challenge,” he said.

TOTAL says the New Generation is compatible with all existing diesel and petrol vehicles, from cars to trucks.

It is available now at all TOTAL stations around the country.

 

Transport sector

The new fuel was launched by the Minister of Local government, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport, Parveen Kumar, at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva on Thursday evening.

Mr Kumar welcomed the new product saying it significantly contributed towards the reduction of carbon footprints.

He noted that transportation remains one of the highest contributors towards carbon emission amounting to around 47 per cent of Fiji’s total annual carbon emission.

“Out of this, 25 per cent is primarily due to increasing use of transport fuel,” he said.

“This innovation is also a key contributor to Government’s obligation to the Climate Change agreements in the regional and international arena.”
