Total launches Excellium in Uganda

Total (Uganda) has started selling Total Excellium in Uganda, according to Stanislas Mittelman, senior vice president, Africa/Middle East at Total Marketing & Services.

“The new generation unleaded petrol and diesel is available in all of the 125 Total service stations across the  country,” he said.

“It combines the best of Total’s technological know-how in its formula and reflect 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.”

He said while new power trains deliver increasingly high performance, they are also increasingly sensitive to build-up.

“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,” he said.

Total Excellium formulation has been optimised with specific detergent additives to clean the engine’s vital components and keep them clean over time. The result is up to 89% less build-up for diesel engines and up to 93% less for petrol engines.

Mittelman said the fuel is compatible with all existing diesel and gasoline vehicles, including cars, light utility vehicles, two-wheelers and trucks.

Total SA, based in Paris, France, is the world’s fourth largest lubricants manufacturer and the leading distributor of petroleum products in Africa.

Total is expanding on the continent with its recent acquisition of Gulf Africa Petroleum Corporation’s (GAPCO) assets in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
