Mobil unveiled yesterday the new look of its 11 gas stations on Saipan to coincide with the launch of their improved fuel formulations. The launch was held at the Mobil gas station on Middle Road.
Mobil Oil Mariana Islands Inc. president Jimmy Hau said the improved gasoline formulas are called Synergy Extra and Synergy Supreme Plus.
“Our scientists have developed this improved formulation featuring the latest in global fuel technology,” he said.
Hau assured that the Mobil’s Synergy range of gasoline is backed by extensive technology and designed “to ensure that customers get the best performance and driving experience.”
Extra is Mobil’s regular grade gasoline. Supreme Plus is its premium grade gasoline and contains the highest octane rating product on the island.
“For both of these grades we made further improvements,” Hau said. “These new fuels have increased additives that helps boost fuel economy, clean engines and improves the performance and responsiveness of your drive.”
Mobil also introduced a new look for all Mobil stations on island, maximizing the use of Mobil’s trademark colors—blue and red.
Similar launches were made in Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand and, early this year, in Guam.
“We are always looking for better ways to serve our customers and these changes were enhanced to improve customer’s fuel experience,” Hau said. “The stations are now cleaner, brighter, and have a more welcoming look to give customers a better refueling experience.”
Bruce Sutherland, ExxonMobil executive director for fuels in Indonesia and the Pacific Islands, said the launch of the Synergy program is a show of commitment and dedication to the Saipan community.
He pointed out that Mobil has worked hard to put terminals and stations back to normal operations after typhoons. “We believe that we are making a positive impact into the community that we operate in. For example, Mobil made $20,000 contribution to the American Red Cross in 2015 to support recovery efforts after Typhoon Soudelor and similar donations were made in kind, providing fuel in 2018 during [Super] Typhoon Yutu recovery efforts.”
Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios, who was present at the launch, said, “A lot of us grew up with Mobil. …This has been my gas station as I grew up not too far from here. It’s familiar and I am glad that they are continuously innovating, redoing and reinvigorating the industry and our community.”
Mobil has been serving the islands for more than 50 years.
