THIS MIGHT INTEREST MEMBERS,WHO PREFER PETROL WITH OUT ADDITIVES AVAILABLE IN SHOREHAM. The is an e mail received from the Company concerned.
We own the ex Texaco Oil Import Terminal at Shoreham West Sussex. We keep in stock Petrol, Diesel, Gasoil, Marine Gasoil and Kerosene. We do not put Bio products in any of our fuel grades. We supply our own group of petrol stations based in East and West Sussex. Currently these are all branded ‘Local Fuel’ but we are in the process of re branding all of petrol service stations as ‘POWER’. Power Petroleum Ltd is our company and only fuel branded ‘Local Fuel’ or ‘Power’ is guaranteed to have no FAME in diesel or bi- ethanol in unleaded.
Our nearest stations to Steyning is our Bolney Cross Service station on the A272 or Pulborough Service station on the A29 You can find more details on our websites: www.local-fuel.co.uk and www.localfuel.co.uk
The benefits of our fuels are:
More power and improved economy
Do not corrode/erode fuel system components
Do not cause fuel filter clogging
Fuel is not hygroscopic, so stays good in your tanks
There are too many other benefits to list here but the points below speak for themselves:
a)Can be used in light aircraft, unlike major branded or supermarket unleaded
b)Can be left in lawn mower, chain saw, historic vehicles tanks without the repeated need to drain and clean
c)Ideal for standby generators, both diesel and petrol. Will reduce problems and servicing costs.
To avoid the Legal ‘Road transport fuels obligation’ which requires all oil companies to add a minimum of 4.75% bio to petrol and diesel, Local Fuel pays a pence per litre RTFO charge. The down side for us is that it would be cheaper to add bio percentages as these are cheaper than the mineral fuel they replace. For our part though we want to develop and run our business with clean fuels. Despite this add on cost we remain highly competitive!
