Total Uganda Introduces TOTAL EXCELLIUM Fuel That Cleans Your Engine Kilometer After Kilometer.
Kampala, August 16, 2016
In Uganda, Total is launching TOTAL EXCELLIUM, a new line of specific fuels that clean engines and provide lasting protection to ensure they perform better, use less fuel and produce fewer polluting emissions. The new generation unleaded petrol and diesel is available in all of the 125 Total service stations across the country.
"This launch represents a new step in innovation to help our customers consume better and less thanks to our fuels. The TOTAL EXCELLIUM products combine of the best Total's technological know-how in its formula and reflects our very high commitment to quality. Our research teams developed these fuels to provide an ever-more effective response to our customers' growing focus on engine care," said Stanislas MITTELMAN, Senior Vice President, Africa/Middle East at Total Marketing & Services.
A clean engine uses less fuel, pollutes less and lasts longer
While new powertrains deliver increasingly high performance, they are also increasingly sensitive to buildup. An accumulation of deposits can affect the engine's operation and negatively impact performance, resulting in higher fuel consumption, a rise in harmful emissions and less power.
That’s why TOTAL EXCELLIUM formulation has been optimized with specific detergent additives to clean the engine's vital components and keep them clean over time. The result is up to 89% less buildup for diesel engines and up to 93% less for gasoline engines.
By eliminating deposits on fuel delivery systems, TOTAL EXCELLIUM keeps engines performing at their optimum level over time with reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
TOTAL EXCELLIUM is compatible with all existing diesel and gasoline vehicles, including cars, light utility vehicles, two-wheelers and trucks.
