HOUSTON -- ConocoPhillips's gasoline has been recognized as a "Top Tier Detergent Gasoline" by four of the world's largest automakers -- BMW, General Motors, Honda and Toyota.
The Top Tier program was established by these automakers as a voluntary program to identify oil companies that provide a higher level of detergency that helps to prevent deposits on intake values and fuel injectors. Top Tier Detergent Gasoline requirements exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's minimum level of gasoline deposit control additive performance.
"This recognition reinforces ConocoPhillips's commitment to the quality of our gasoline. We feel it will give our marketers and dealers a distinct advantage in the marketplace," said Mark Harper, president for ConocoPhillips U.S. Marketing.
ConocoPhillips introduced Quality PROclean Gasolines earlier this year, which made the company's gasoline among the highest quality available in the market. The gasoline additive, which is available in all three grades, already exceeded the Top Tier requirements that were later established.
"We are pleased that the quality of our gasoline has been backed up with this Top Tier recognition," Harper said. "It demonstrates our promise to consumers to provide a high-quality product that will help clean their engines and reduce deposits."
