Engen Petroleum Hygiene / putrid urine and ammonia odours - Engen On-Stop Mossel Bay

Dear Sir/Ma'am

13h40 - 8 February 2024.

Filled up with fuel at Mossel Bay Engen 1-Stop.

The toilets were in an unsanitary condition. Reeking of ammonia/urine. The toilet floors were also sticky and dirty floors. Altogether nauseating.

What was concerning is that the supervisor and staff had misrepresented their checks and balances, clearly signing off on work and procedures when in fact, none or few had taken place. See attachments for actual picture records I took of alleged work done.

I could not eat in the restaurant or purchase food after this. I was left feeling quite queasy and sensed that the overall hygiene and health/safety of the business was lacking.

Moreover, your head office communication email bounced my email to you and on searching the complaints sites, it appeard Engen ignores complaints and shuns any responses.

See pictures below

Thanking you

Ron Weissenberg

Claimed loss: None

Desired outcome: Fix your business please and employ supervisors and employees who dont slack-off and harm your reputation. Dont become your competition's best salesperson

This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

I have always held Engen to a very high standard. Your garages are exactly what one needs especially when traveling long distance, you have friendly staff, clean facilities and what I experienced in an Engen Garage in Vryburg North West Saturday 14-10-2023 in the afternoon was completely the opposite of what I am used to when stopping by your garages to...

Engen Petroleum Assault by engene garage employees

Good day

We hereby lodge a complaint against the employees of Engen garage situated at Elias Motsoaledi Road, Soweto, Johannesburg. On the 25/09/223 at about 01:30 am, I was at the Engene garage that is situated next to Tshepo Themba hospital in Soweto to fill up the petrol. Ayanda, who is the girl-friend to my friend Edward, packed the vehicle next to the petrol pump and I went out of the vehicle to pee. Petrol attendant that was assisting Ayanda called his colleagues and suddenly I was badly attacked (assaulted) and my friend Edward was beaten up too. After the attack I went straight to the nearest hospital for treatment.

We therefore would like Engen Garage to look into this matter and advise accordingly.

Thank you

Kind regards,

William – [protected]

Engen Petroleum Petrol Attendant (trainee) left my oil cap open, car damaged. The service station is not helpful at all.

On the 23 June 2023 I went to this petrol station to fill up my car and all the necessary(tyre pressure, windscreen wash, and to check oil levels and water levels. the petrol attendant informed me that there was one pint of oil short and I agreed to purchase the one pint. I asked him why any of his colleagues were not helping him as he was doing so many things on his own. I paid, went to work which is a ( 5 minutes distance from Engen). later that day I had to travel to Pietermaritzburg as I go there almost every weekend. After work, I drove to PMB- as I was driving, the car started smoking, loosing power and literally started failing on me. i stopped and called my mechanic. They came to the scene, opened the bonnet and realized that the oil cap almost fell as it was not closed at all, there was oil spills everywhere the Engen. the Mechanic drove the car for remainder of the way to PMB and told me to park the car. I went back to Durban on the 26 June 2023 evening, and the morning of the 27 June 2023 I went back to the petrol station and informed the petrol attendant of what had happened. He told me he would inform his supervisor. We went back on the 28th June 2023, where we spoke to the manager and he said the boss will get back to me the following week as they were still on some celebration.

On the 05 July the manager forwarded me WhatsApp messages from his boss vaguely stating that I should go report the case and deal with my insurance. I tried calling him after he sent the messages and he had no interest in listening to what I had to say.

My car is not functioning properly, and it is not insured. I took it for a evaluation with the mechanic and he told me that the car was seriously damaged by the oil spill on the engen. I do not have money or means to fix my car and I feel like I am on a dead end as I am not getting any constructive direction. Please any kind of help will be appreciated.

Desired outcome: I would like for the company to pay for the damages caused by the oil spill, please :-(

Engen Petroleum Incorrect card transaction

ON 25 May 2023 at 15H37, I filled my vehicle, a Hyundai Matrix GL, with Petrol at Flamboyant Convenience Engen, Rocky Drift, White River, 1241

The petrol pump displayed the amount of 48.85 litres and R1 161.16.

I tapped my FNB Card at the speed point machine offered to me by petrol attendant, Winston.

I then noticed the amount of R1 234.15 had been debited from my account and not the R1 161.16 as per the petrol pump.

I contacted the manager at Flamboyant Convenience Engen and explained the situation and sent him a photograph, via Whatsapp, of my receipt.

He advised he would investigate and get back to me.

I have had no response from the manager, and am most disconcerted that the attendant could so easily process a fraudulent amount.

Please advise further steps I can take, I will be discussing this matter with my local newspaper as well, and highlighting this issue.

Desired outcome: Investigation into fraudulent transactions by attendants, explanation as to the total disregard from the manager to the problem.

Engen Petroleum Service

I asked the attendant to wash windscreen. Clearly he wasn't in the mood. He didn't wash and dry window properly, I asked him to dry nicely as soap could still be seen on windscreen and to dry underneath wipers. He stated at me. I told him to give me the paper so to dry it mysel. He actually wanted to give me the paper! As I was about to get out and do it myself, I decided to NOT do it. It is not MY JOB! I asked for the manager, only then he wiped the blades and windscreen properly. It is not my 1st time to get bad service from this place. I absolutely despises this garage and try NEVER to stop there.

Engen Petroleum Engen Fairmount petrol price overcharge

28th February 2023, 13:48 I filled my tank at Engen Fairmount t/a C & B Motors Sydenham Johannesburg and paid for 29.52 litres of Unleaded 93 petrol which equates to R22.65 per litre where the board on the pavement clearly displayed R21.63 per litre for Unleaded 93!

I only realized I was overcharged when I went to Caltex to fill my other car with Unleaded 93.

I immediately went back to Engen Fairmount at spoke to the owner from the cashiers mobile. I told the owner that I had been overcharged and that what he is doing is illegal especially being a busy day before the petrol increase at midnight. He said that I must be nice to the cashier and she give me the refund for the difference and that I must stop shouting as I don't understand, and then he ended the call!

Desired outcome: That Engen Fairmount be blacklisted as they brought Engen"s name into disrepute due their dishonesty which could possibly include a pump closure of seven days.

Engen Petroleum Engen Ennerdale

Good day,My name is Monique, i am based in Ennerdale Johannesburg South.

On the 18/02/2023 as a loyal Engen customer my daily fuel refills always takes place at Engen.

As the petrol attendee came to assist with pouring petrol i stated how much as well as which fuel, when the attendee finished i than asked for him to pump my tires, he stated that he will not pump my tires as i am young, i am a 21 going on 22 young female, and i cannot ask any assistance for any petrol attended, as i approached the manager, as he was on duty as well, the manager laughs at me and walk away, and instructed by the petrol attended "Go tell my manager there is he i don't care i will not pump your tire's"

Please tell me as a loyal Engen customer is this the treatment we get, and how many more young or old customer's were told the exact same thing,

i am honestly shocked by the poor treatment as i do receive great treatment from all Engen garages I've ever went too, what's next pour our own petrol?

Desired outcome: I would honestly like some changes, and i would appreciate for this petrol attended to be dealt with, or i will go on all social media platforms and name and shame these petrol attendees that work for Engen.

Engen Petroleum Service

I came to the garage and found some station closed and waited at behind the Bidvest car. Then when it was my turn, the filling lady helped the guy with payment and never came back to assist me. She just looked at me and continued with her stuff. I step out of the vehicle when the truck next to me left and I came before it. I opened the diesel cap and went to the car and start searching for the nearest engine station. I then went back to close the cab then went back in the Bakkie. I was so angry and late and the garage was not busy. Attendent stood there and watched. As I was I about to leave one guy came but I left and drove +-10km for the other Engen garage. The daveland Engen must be closed.

Desired outcome: ClosedApologyThe lady must be fired

Engen Petroleum Damages and poor customer services

So as I was saying when we went out the car to confront him he started explaining that he was trying to open the lid when he pushed it fell. so we approached the manager on duty to explain the situation and everything was agreed that they will pay for the damage prior to that we get them a quotation. On the 3rd Feb we gave them a quotation from GPS (Germans Parts Specialist) in PTA WEST, which amounted to R805.00. They refuse to reimburse us for the damaged.

Today we went again to the garage as were called off by the station manager by the name of Adam he told us that they will not pay for the damages and that the station is not responsible for the damages "according to the footage this lid was already damage and it just fell." We disputed his case because if the lid was already broken it could have fall on the road to the distance we traveled from home to the garage.

I feel like the manner on this case was treated unfairly and the services and the services or the conclusion was not fair. The way he spoke to us and his tone on how he said all that telling us that he won't pay for it and even this is not the first case he dealt with it, it just shoes us that their customer services is poor and they don't care for their customer.

I would like this matter to be dealt with URGENTLY for the cap to be replaced as it is not safe to be driving around with this cap not being closed.

Your urgent assistance in this matter will be highly appreciated.

Kind regards

Angelina

Desired outcome: I would like that the cap be replaces or pay for the damages as described ..the amount of the replaceable lid/cap is R805.00

Engen Petroleum Allegations of stealing diesel

Aggrievance Letter to Engen Garage Midway
I would like to express my grievance with the way I have been treated by Engen Garage Midway. I was arrested on 19 August 2022 due to allegation from Engen Midway that led to my arrest and spent a night in police custody (case No.572/07/2022) handled by Det. Ntshwane from Midrand Police station. I appeared in court the following day and the case was withdrawn, see attached docket documentation copy.

I always refill at Engen garage in particularly the Engen Midway, I am holder of Clicks loyalty cards (No. [protected]) see attached my recorded, I always use my Clicks' card loyalty programme that has my full contact details; hence my docket had my cell number and Gauteng home address. Engen Midway never took an effort to call me and enquiry about the payment that was not cleared.

I was assisted by the Petrol Attendant Trainee Mr C. Seshoba on 19 July 2022 for diesel refill of R800,000 VAT Inclusive, the garage maintained that payment was uncleared, and I ran away. How can I run away without paying and return the following week to refill on, see attached receipt. You may check the record I refill at that station every two weeks between and my day of arrest. I used my VISA debit card did not go through and I used my Woolworths credit card to pay and Mr Seshoba advised me that the printer is faulty I then drove off and my statement shows that the transaction went through then got reserved. I was not informed of this my Engen Midway, Woolworths, advised that the transaction was cancelled by someone.

I only received my renewed license disk yesterday after three (3) months of hassle with police and JMPD langlaagte license department sending me from pillar to post. Ultimately, I have spent R11,000.00 VAT Inclusive for attorney fees to get me out of prison, police clearance process, roadworthy test and obtain a license disk and new registration. I would like to request reimbursement for the costs incurred unnecessary from wrong allegation that led to my arrest.

I thought I should write to you first, if no response is received within ten (10) days, I will turn to The Office of the Consumer Goods and Services Ombud (CGSO) for justice.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to your positive response.

Yours Sincerely,
Thandile Mhlom

Engen Petroleum Credit card dispute - overcharging 100 times

I visited Namibia from SA, drove by Henties Bay Fuel Center (Swakopmund, before entering Walvis Bay) around 11 a.m. on 24 December 2022. Before entering the desert area, I decided to top up the tank, which was not much, around 380 NAD. The transaction was posted to my credit card on 30 Dec. 2022, but the amount became 37916 NAD! I did not know what's wrong. I wrote via email to Engen in SA as well as in Namibia, through email addresses which I could find online and I have not heard any response. I am pursuing the dispute with my bank and credit card company now. If you know of any channel I can alert the Engen people to check their accounting system that would be very helpful. The name of the credit card holder is WONG Yuen Ling. The credit card is a VISA ending with XXXX XXXX XXXX 1163.

Desired outcome: Engen will revert this transaction!

Engen Petroleum Terrible service attitude and misinformation

Date of incident 12/09/2022

Place: Engen on Elgin road Birchleigh Kempton park

Name of cashier: Mokgadi

This cashier refused to give me a discount on a clearly visible and branded

special of 2 ice creams for R31.

she insisted I pay the full price only because she said she cannot subtract the discount amount.

I then insisted to speak to another staff member who was working in the back office. Only then did I get the discount clearly visible next to the merchandise

She had a terrible attitude and treated me as though me spending my money there is a favor to me.

Please resolve this or I will take the matter further. Since these ice creams were for my daughter who was with me during this incident

Desired outcome: A formal apology from this cashier
