Make way for cleaner fuel
One of the biggest challenges standing in the way of higher Euro-rated engines being introduced in South Africa is the quality of fuel in the country … But this has changed as Sasol launched its turbodiesel ULS 10 parts per million (ppm) yesterday, November 20.
“We are continuously looking for ways to enhance our products to enable vehicles featuring the latest technology to be introduced in South Africa and ultimately benefit the general consumer,” explains Mohamed Carrim, retail manager at Sasol Oil. “It is indeed a huge milestone for Sasol and South Africa.”
According to Carrim, Sasol’s new 10 ppm turbodiesel is suitable for all diesel vehicles, from older generation models to those with the latest technology, with and without turbocharging.
“A key part of the Sasol turbodiesel ULS 10 ppm is its advanced detergency. This prevents or removes deposit build-up in the engine and fuel system, allowing the engine to operate at optimum efficiency and sustain optimum fuel consumption over time,” Carrim points out. “Continued use will maintain new fuel systems as well as clean up dirty ones.”
Sasol’s new turbodiesel is available at 78 forecourts in Gauteng and Mpumalanga. The product will be selectively rolled-out to other areas in 2014 and 2015.
