We, at Petrol Ofisi, obtained our first LPG distribution license in the year 2006. In 2007 we put into operation our second LPG Filling Plant and as the national autogas distributor throughout Turkey we created the PO/gas brand and speeded up our operations in the autogas sector. In 2014, the number of our stations reached 1.459 and we achieved a market share of 15.42 percent.
Most of our investments in autogas concluded. 2 LPG terminals that have a capacity of 50.000 m³ were opened for use in İzmir/Aliağa and Kocaeli/Yarımca for LPG storage, import and distribution. We continue working within the framework of our intensive activity plan aimed at increasing the number of our dealers and ensuring the optimization of the supply and logistics of our expansive sales network. Our large fleet of vehicles is equipped with a satellite monitoring system with which we track all our vehicles at all times, as well as load weighing meters. Furthermore, with our system that also enables instant invoicing, we own the most developed equipment and advanced technology in the sector.
By continuously increasing our market targets we are focusing our efforts to provide our customers with the best possible services. Our work aimed at becoming a leader and exemplary company in all fields of the LPG market continues incessantly. At Petrol Ofisi we are improving our sales, technical and logistic infrastructure in accordance with legal and technical rules as well as HSE (Health – Safety- Environment) standards.
Our economical, environment friendly and safe product LPG, also referred to as autogas, is a mixture of propane, butane and other derivatives, brought together in certain ratios according to specified standards.
We spend the utmost effort to ensure the safety and security of our customers by making sure that our products comply with TS EN589 standards. We also make sure that the LPG systems installed at our filling stations meet the minimum standards of TS 11939, TS 1446, and TS 1449 among others. The use of autogas, the most environment-friendly fossil fuel, reduces gas emissions and minimizes the greenhouse effect produced by vehicles.
"10 tips for LPG users," are as follows:
The LPG tank has a part called multivalve, which contains several safety systems. One of these systems makes sure that only 80% of the tank is filled. This will secure the vehicle against thermal changes. Therefore do not shake your LPG tank to get more gas and don’t let anyone else do it while filling the tank.
Have an authorized service center and do the periodic maintenance of your LPG tank at every 15.000 km’s. The lifespan of the filter inside the LPG is also 15.000 km. Therefore ask your service to change the filter periodically.
If there is a problem with the system, get in touch with an authorized service center. If there’s a leak, don’t let the LPG contact directly with your eyes or skin and don’t exhale the LPG. If there’s has been a contact, wash the area minimum for 20 minutes.
If your vehicle will stay in a garage for a long time, close all the valves that belong to the multivalve on the LPG tank.
Don’t park your vehicle close to any open fire source. Don’t use open fire heaters inside your vehicle.
In case of a problem, bring the fuel selector key to ’gas’ from ’autogas’ and close all the multivalve valves on the LPG tank. Vehicles with carburetors should be started with gas once a day so that the gas fuel system won’t dry out.
After the LPG transformation, a leak test should be performed by an authorized mechanical engineer and necessary legal procedures should be followed.
The filling rate of the gas tank should be at least 1/4. Otherwise the pumps can be damaged. In sequential systems, even when the selector key is at autogas position, the vehicle uses gas when it’s first started and then starts using autogas when the engine reaches a certain temperature.
There should be LPG stickers on the front and back windows of your vehicle.
The LPG tanks used in LPG transformation should be changed every 10 years after the year of production
