As part of measures to reduce environmental pollution, as well as enhance the engine performance of vehicles in Ghana, petroleum companies are developing new strategies to curb the menace.
Energy policy think tank, Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) earlier revealed that thousands of Ghanaians lose their lives every year because they inhale fumes from dirty diesel.
The report also cited the alarming health implications caused from air pollution.
But in an interview with Citi Business News, Sales and Marketing Manager of Total Petroleum Ghana, Abdul Rahim Saddique said the new total Excellium product introduced onto the Ghanaian market will ensure less emission from vehicles onto the environment.
“Users are indeed confirming that when they use this product they see a reduction in their fuel consumption. They also notice that their engines are performing more optimally than before and their vehicles are giving fewer emissions thereby polluting the environment less. So it’s an environmentally friendly product.” he said.
Mr Saddique also adds that “The excellium range of products has the ability to clean your engine. What happens is that there are some deposits that build up in your engine but this range of products are able to clean up to 93% of this deposit and once you have a cleaner engine what it means is that your car consumes less fuel, it is able to perform much better then the performance of the engine is enhanced.”
