PETALING JAYA, Aug 21 (Bernama) — UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd expects to increase sales of its new Toyota Genuine Motor Oil (TGMO-Minyak Enjin Tulen Toyota) by 10 percent this year.
In 2007, UMWT sold 3.27 million litres of TGMO valued at RM54.2 million.
UMWT director of customer services group, Ismet Suki said the company has made a lot of changes and improvement to the TGMO in order to suit the new developed engines by Toyota and to meet the expectations of the market.
“The TGMO was developed especially for Toyota vehicles for better efficiency and ease of driving,” he said at the launch of the new TGMO at Toyota branch in Subang, near here Thursday.
TGMO was first introduced in 1989 with only two grades, the TGMO SG 20W-50 for petrol engine and TGMO CD-40 for diesel engine vehicles.
Currently, there are five different grades of the TGMO in the product line-up, ranging from the fully synthetic, mineral and diesel grades.
The TGMO bottles also come with new colours and design, the gold bottle for the TGMO fully synthetic and varying shades of grey for the other variants.
The four-litre TGMO is priced at RM185 per bottle and one-litre TGMO at RM49 per bottle.
It will be available at all 56 Toyota services centres nationwide.
