Most people are unaware of how the petrol station business really function in Tanzania. When people see around the street petrol stations carrying a logo of oil company such as TOTAL.

They think the petrol stations are directly owned by Total. That is untrue.

Total, Puma, Oil com and other oil companies own 2 to 3 percent of the petrol stations. Most of the petrol stations you see around street are owned by independent petrol station retailers who have licensed to represent a brand of oil companies like Total or Puma.

So here is how it works. An individual, build a petrol station from scratch. He installs all necessary equipment such as pumps and underground storage tanks. And run the station under the name or brand of oil companies such as TOTAL.

The Tank truck comes from Total to refill the station’s underground storage tanks. The driver makes a record of the amount of the fuel he has delivered. At each month the owner of the fuel station has to pay total for the fuel have sold to their customers.
