On the auspicious occasion of Dhanteras, Indian Oil presented two unique customer-centric offerings to delight Indian Oil patrons across the country.
On Tuesday, the company rolled out the cleaner and greener diesel XtraGreen to 126 fuel stations across 63 cities in the country and also launched IndianOil’s fuel gift card, One4U.
The rollout of XtraGreen and the launch of One4U was done in the presence of Shrikant Madhav Vaidya, chairman and other senior officials of Indian Oil, including Dr SS V Ramakumar, Director (Research & Development and Petrochemical and Business Development) and V Satish Kumar, Director (Marketing).
Chairman Vaidya commenced the sale of XtraGreen at an Indian Oil fuel station in Agra.

“This also underlines IndianOil’s unwavering commitment to provide niche and specialized solutions to the environmentally sensitive market segments while continuously enhancing the user experience,” he added.
