Mobil Launches New Fuels In New Zealand

Mobil Oil New Zealand today launches new fuel technology to the New Zealand market. Called Mobil Synergy, the new fuel range will completely replace all existing Mobil fuel lines.

From today, Synergy 1000 replaces regular unleaded 91, Synergy 6000 replaces unleaded 96, and Synergy Diesel replaces Mobil diesel. Mobil is also introducing a new high-octane, premium fuel, Synergy 8000.

Alan Heng, Country Manager of Mobil Oil New Zealand, says the initiative is part a long-term commitment to high quality fuels that are better for the environment. Synergy heralds the beginning of a whole new generation of fuel technology.

As well as improving vehicle performance and engine maintenance, Synergy’s advanced formula and additives will enhance engine efficiency and reduce harmful emissions.

“Our over-riding aim is to bring our innovation and know-how to the market to enhance the driving experience. "

From today, the new Synergy fuels slate will be pumping from 133 of Mobil’s 550 nationwide sites. The new high-octane premium fuel, Synergy 8000, will be available only at selected Auckland and Wellington sites.

Phases two and three of the launch programme, rolling out during April, May and June this year, will complete Mobil’s national changeover to the new Synergy range.

Although Synergy is a global initiative, the Synergy fuels being launched here in New Zealand are unique. They have been specifically selected for New Zealand conditions to enhance local motorists’ driving experiences,” says Mr Heng.

“Synergy 8000 will be the highest-octane rating fuel available to local motorists, aligning New Zealand more with European markets, where high-performance fuels are widely available.

“Synergy 8000 is particularly exciting for us. I know the launch is welcomed by New Zealand drivers of high performance vehicles, " says Mr Heng.

The new Synergy diesel product will be a plus for motorists aiming to reduce smoky emissions, particularly important in these days of instant fines for smoky exhausts. In testing, Synergy Diesel was found to reduce black smoke emissions by as much as 78 per cent and particulates by up to 25 per cent.
It also contains detergents, a defoamant for easier re-fueling and corrosion inhibitors.

Synergy fuels will be competitively priced, reflecting market trends.
