[eBook] The Complete Guide to Starting a Petrol Station in Tanzania


Can I be painfully honest with you?

No, not thank-God-he-told-me kind of honesty, where someone points out a gutter in front of you in the middle of the night.

It’s brutal, bitter, and downright ugly.

Have you noticed? In your city, boutiques are empty, restaurants are closing up, and even the streets are getting emptier by the day.

Yet, economic activities are still going on.

But what you will also notice, if you look hard and well, is that some businesses are also starting up.

To be specific, petrol stations line every street corner. More people are consuming more fuel.

Consider this:

  • People are buying more cars. Look at all the cars on the highway—thousands of them—they buy fuel from petrol stations.
  • There is still a power-failure problem in the country, so, people depend on generators—both diesel and petrol powered. They have to buy fuel from petrol stations.
  • Aside that, we’re no longer in the Stone Age where people cook with logs of wood. Now, they simply buy kerosene from a petrol station for their cooking. Those who don’t use kerosene use cooking gas, which they buy from petrol stations.

There’s an available market to sell to in all the above. Besides selling petrol, diesel, kerosene, cooking gas, and engine oil, those petrol stations:

  • Offer car washing services.
  • Offer car repair services.
  • Have a restaurant and, in some cases, a bar.
  • Have a shopping mall.
  • Even rent out vacant offices to companies like DSTV, telecommunication companies, etc.

So, you see, economic activities may have lessened in your city, but it seems some economic activities are increasing by the day. This is a huge business opportunity, if you’re passionate about starting a filling station.

It involves:

  • A tangible investment and a tangible return.
  • Low risk: The petrol station business is not like the forex market where your investment just liquidates. Or MMM where your mavros suddenly freeze. Even if you stop running your business, there are still scores of income streams you can tap into.
  • Selling to an already available market: You are not cajoling people to buy products they don’t intend to buy like multi-level marketers do. You’re serving people who can’t do without your products.
  • Opportunities to do complementary businesses: Businesses like car washing, car repair, restaurant, shopping mall, etc.

This is your opportunity to start a filling station.

What if you could learn the requirements of starting a petrol station without wasting precious years? What if you could learn what it takes to run a filling station? What if you could do that without begging, bribing, or cajoling anybody? What if you could do that now?
