For the first time in Fiji, an environmentally friendly Autogas powered car is the top prize in a competition. The Win a Car with Fiji Gas promotion is being launched on the 29th of November and it will run until 27th of February 2015.
The main prize is a fully loaded Mazda Axela powered by Auto Gas from Fiji Gas. International tests have revealed that Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) produces far fewer pollutants and green house gases than diesel and even unleaded petrol.
LPG produces 33% less CO2 emissions than petrol and 45% less CO2 than diesel.
LPG vehicles produce up to 82% less Nitrogen Oxide pollutants than petrol and 99% better than diesel!
63% less Carbon Monoxide.
40% less Hydrocarbons than petrol and 70% less than diesel.
50% less particulates than petrol and 98% less than diesel.
“Auto Gas sales have been increasing steadily and I think the time is right to start promoting the environmental benefits of LPG fuel over petrol or Diesel.” says Peter Lee, the CEO of Fiji Gas. “The facts on emissions speak for themselves. But to bring it close to home you never see an LPG powered vehicle belching out thick black exhaust fumes. But with other vehicles it is an all too common site in Fiji.”
“Fiji is known for its unspoilt paradise and pristine beaches. Our cruise liner tourists fall short of seeing this picture of Fiji when they step off their cruise to the sight of the polluted Suva Bus Stand.”
“We have kept the competition as easy as possible. When you refuel $30 or more at any of our Auto Gas sites or when you purchase any Fiji Gas cylinder refill, you simply fill in your contact details on the vouchers provided at our auto gas sites or on the back of your receipt and drop it into the entry bins provided.” said Cornelia Smith, the CRM & Marketing Officer at Fiji Gas. “We will have weekly draws for free gas refill and the main draw for the Auto Gas powered Mazda Axella will be done at the end of February.” “We are pleased we can highlight the environmental issues facing Fiji and at the same time reward our customers.”
Fiji Gas first began supplying gas to Fiji in 1956. It is now into the largest LPG Company in Fiji and the Pacific islands. Its headquarters are in Walu Bay Lami.
