It's the expertise we put into our fuels that makes the difference
For more than 130 years, the Esso brand has been committed to developing quality fuel products to get Canadians where they need to go. Today, we continue to lead the way - putting our energy into researching and engineering high quality gasoline and diesel fuel products that meet the performance needs of your vehicle. We focus on technology and innovation, so you can focus on everything else.
Stringent quality controls are in place at every step
At the refinery, where crude oil is refined into gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products, the Esso brand conducts tests to verify that our fuel meets or exceeds engine builder and industry specifications
We test the fuel again as it enters the pipeline or barge for delivery to the terminal
At the terminal, our additives are precisely injected as each delivery truck is filled, ensuring the quality of our fuel
At Esso service stations, delivery drivers and retailers are instructed to check the fuel once more to ensure that it hasn't become contaminated with water
As well, fuel dispensers at the stations have filters to provide a final cleaning just before the fuel enters your vehicle's tank
Esso's Sarnia Technology Applications and Research Department coordinates systematic sampling of Esso service stations in Canada and conducts thorough testing to help ensure that Esso gasoline meets the key quality and performance properties that matter to you and your vehicle
Our fuels adhere to applicable government standards
After our fuels have been delivered to Esso-branded service stations, we regularly survey them to confirm that they contain the proper type and amount of our detergent additives and that they meet applicable federal standards as well as provincial and other locally specified limits.
