Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
Esso makes its return to the Isle of Wight
Published:  12 July, 2014

Isle of Wight Fuels has secured an agreement with Esso to bring its fuels back to the Isle of Wight for the first time in many years.

The Esso brand is being launched on the island at The Southern Co-operative Food and Petrol Station in Sandown.

David Grannum, general manager of Isle of Wight Fuels, said: "We had to ensure that we met Esso's stringent quality standards, which has included investment in an upgrade at our terminal in East Cowes to include Esso's exclusive additive technology.

"Esso's exclusive fuel additives are even more important on an island environment as motorists are generally doing shorter and more frequent journeys and are not regularly de-coking their engines, which you would on a longer motorway drive."

He said Isle of Wight Fuels chose Esso because it offers high quality and standards. He explained: "Testing has shown that regular use of Esso supreme diesel gives fuel injectors a deeper clean than Esso standard diesel, which helps engine performance."

Mike Fitton, franchise development manager at Southern Co-operative, said: "Southern Co-operative welcomes the arrival of Esso to the Isle of Wight and the brand benefits and quality of products that they bring. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Esso and Isle of Wight Fuels."
