Aloha Renews Commitment to TOP TIER Gasoline
HONOLULU -- Aloha Petroleum Ltd. renewed its agreement as a TOP TIER gasoline retailer. The chain’s Aloha-branded gasoline has met the TOP TIER standard since 2006, just two years after the program was established.
"We strive to exceed our customers' expectations by offering quality products at our fuel stations and our convenience stores. By continuing to offer Aloha TOP TIER gasoline, customers can rest assured that the gasoline they are buying meets the stringent standards for TOP TIER detergent gasoline performance," said Richard Parry, president and CEO of Aloha Petroleum.
TOP TIER gasoline helps drivers avoid lower-quality gasoline that can leave deposits on critical engine parts and reduce an automobile's engine performance. Aloha TOP TIER gasoline contains two to three times the amount of cleaning agents required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and continued use of the fuel helps clean a vehicle's entire intake system, according to the retailer. TOP TIER gasoline can also help prevent rough idling, hesitation and stalling, while optimizing fuel economy, reducing emissions and restoring vehicle performance.
All grades of Aloha gasoline -- Regular, Plus, Super and Ethanol Free -- meet the TOP TIER detergent gasoline specification recommended by some of the automotive industry's leading original equipment manufacturers. This makes Aloha one of 22 gasoline brands nationwide to meet the TOP TIER standards for all grades.
The TOP TIER detergent gasoline program was established in 2004, when several major car manufacturers noted that the average detergent level in gasoline had slipped dramatically since the EPA established minimum additive standards in 1995. Automotive engineers, who set standards and monitor the TOP TIER gasoline used by participating gasoline retailers, oversee the program.
Honolulu-based Aloha Petroleum Ltd. operates more than 100 Shell-, Aloha- and Mahalo-branded convenience stores and gas stations in Hawaii.
