We put customers' benefits first with strong support of R&D

If there’s noise from the engine and increase in fuel consumption while driving, you should be aware that these symptoms may be caused by vehicle engine fouling. With the continually improving of engine technologies, the latest generations of engines are becoming more sensitive to the occurrence of deposits. Fouling causes an accumulation of deposits which affects the main parts of the engine and alters its performance: increased consumption, higher emission or even power loss.

In order to solve these problems and provide a better driving experience to our customers, 20 researchers from the research center of the Total Marketing & Services division: Solaize Research Centre (CReS),  worked together with engine specialists, tribologists (the science of friction) and car manufacturers for a new fuel formulations that enable Total clients to consume better and less.

After several years of research, with more than 500 analysis in laboratory and over 300 hours testing on the engine test bed, Total R&D team have succeeded in drawing up a fuel which could keep engine clean: TOTAL EXCELLIUM.  It’s comprised with 6 molecules, and has been enriched with detergents which clean and keep clean the main engine components (injectors and inlet valves)1

Benefits of the cleaning effect

TOTAL EXCELLIUM prevents up to 93% of fouling; it allows engines to keep its intake system clean and clean up to 24%1 of an existing fouling on inlet valves. TOTAL EXCELLIUM makes your engine more efficient, more economical and less polluting

  • A clean engine lasts longer 1:By eliminating deposits, TOTAL EXCELLIUM enables your engine to maintain its performance 1. Its anti-corrosion technology protects your engine for an extended lifetime.
  • A clean engine uses less fuel 1:A fouled engine can increase your fuel consumption; this is why it is essential to keep it clean to maintain its efficiency. TOTAL EXCELLIUM contains detergents which make for a reduction in your fuel consumption.
  • A clean engine pollutes less: By improving running of your engine, TOTAL EXCELLIUM contributes to a reduction in polluting emissions (carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons).The reduction in consumption directly results in a reduction in CO2 emissions .

Now, TOTAL EXCELLIUM is selling at the Beijing Total-Sinochem service stations and will be launched in Wuhan Total service stations very soon. Despite numerous challenges, Total will insist on offering cleaner, safer, more efficient and more innovative energy.

1.By comparison with a fuel with no specific additive. Prevents up to 93% of inlet valve fouling on indirect injection gasoline engines, tests performed in November 2015 on a test bench in compliance with the reference method CEC F-05-93. Results can vary depending on the type of vehicle.
