Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) for Petrol Engines

Premium Motor Spirit, also known as gasoline or petrol, is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in powering the internal combustion engines of most vehicles, generators and machines. Our PMS comprises of organic compound together with variety of additives that enhance engine performance. It is of premium quality and it is compatible with all petrol vehicles.

Product benefits:

  • Ensures cleanliness of fuel systems by minimizing the buildup of harmful deposits.
  • Provides better combustion and fuel economy.
  • Reduces maintenance of fuel systems.

Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) for Diesel Engines

Automotive Gas Oil, also known as diesel, is a light distillate fuel used to efficiently power internal combustion diesel engines. It is obtained from crude oil distillation and is used in automotive (both on and off road) and industrial applications.

Product benefits:

  • Delivers adequate lubricity, to help protect fuel pumps and injectors from wear.

Household Kerosene (HHK)

Household Kerosene is a liquid hydrocarbon similar in composition to diesel. It is widely used as a fuel, in industry, and in households for lamps, cooking stoves.

MRS gas in Cameroun is Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), which is composed of approx. 80% of butane and 20% of propane. It is marketed in filled cylinders or in bulk for local industries’ needs.

LPG is either manufactured in the local refinery or imported, and stored at the joint-user SCDP depot (national fuel Storage Company). We sell it through retail service stations or independent dealers, and to commercial and industrial customers.

 

Our Cylinders

We currently offer steel cylinders under five (05) types of packaging: 6 kg; 10 kg; 12.5 kg; 15 kg and 25 kg.

Other available cylinders in the market are 18kg and 35kg.

 

LPG accessories

Some retailers do sell LPG accessories in the service stations they manage.

  • Pressure relief valves: these valves are designed to relief pressure that might result from overfilling or exposure to excessive heat of fire.
  • Hoses: LPG hoses that are meant to ease carrying of cylinders with as little leakage as possible.

 

Safety Guide for Handling Gas Cylinder.

  • Avoid transporting cylinders in the passenger compartment of your vehicle, whenever possible. If the cylinders are in the passenger’s compartment, open at least one window and turn the ventilation fan on high speed when transporting them.
  • Store cylinders standing vertically and secure them: do not store cylinders at temperatures greater than 65°C. Full or empty compressed gas cylinders should be stored in a well ventilated area, preferably in open spaces, with some weather protection.
  • Take care in handling cylinders to avoid impact damage
  • When in use, cylinder valves used in the fully open position may become stuck in this open position. To prevent this, ensure that the hand wheel or cylinder valve key is turned back half a turn.
  • ALWAYS close the supply cylinder valve when not in use.
  • Regularly check for faults and leaks: use the right LPG hose and connection, and ensure the expiration date is respected
  • Gas cylinders involved in a fire may explode: if a leak has occurred but not ignited, which cannot be stopped by closing the valve, remove the cylinder to a safe position outside, at least 100m
  • If cylinders are in a fire, the key actions to be taken are: evacuate the area (min. 100 m); call the fire brigade.
  • NEVER transfer gas to another cylinder
