  • How about Wesgas? Otherwise thanks for this information

    • WES Gas is not very common and not easy to find. So apart from mentioning it, we did not include it in the comparison.

      • WASIRWA

        Eriastaus, that is not right because WESGAS as a different delivery model. Did you call to find out from them how they put their product on the market? Your information for the customers is not updated.

        • Mr. Wasirwa we appreciate your concerns but not your threats. Feel free to seek legal redress

          • WASIRWA

            Not easy to find and you think that’s not negative compaign? Of course I am free to seek a legal redress and I will inform you in the due course sir!

          • Again you have a golden opportunity to FREELY inform netizens of your product and your first instinct is to 1) throw false accusations that this blog is being paid by your competition and 2) threaten hard-working people who are genuinely providing the public with valuable, actionable information rarely available elsewhere offline or online other than this platform? Mr @wasirwa:disqus you’re definitely the first I’ve met with this kind of attitude.

        • IamNomad

          SO Mr. Wasirwa, you have a platform to inform would-be clients about your product (and correct any misrepresentation) and the first thing you do is threaten a website mentioning your product free of charge. Do you honestly believe you have won over any hearts with your attitude? You should have better used this opportunity to explain your delivery model so everybody understands it.

          • WASIRWA

            I am Nomad, as a matter of fact, the customer asked the question and the response offered on the side of Eristaus was honestly negative. If Eristaus wanted to remain objective then he would have offered an objective answer but being subjective over something he doesn’t was not the right option of words on his end.
            I will appreciate if we admit the choice of words but if he continue using the same choice of words of course we shall have no option but seek legal advice.
            He will appreciate that such language might make me think that he has been paid a competition to give such a response on such a platform.

          • IamNomad

            You are completely missing the point here. Eristaus did not call ‘the competition’ as called them to ask about their product. Why should he call WesGas? What he did was some field work the results of which he used to write this post. Will I find WesGas at a random Fuel Station if I went right now? Answer me that. And I believe you founded WesGas yourself. Why not enlighten us of your business model right here, right now? The time you take talking of legal redress over such a trivial matter is time you lose to promote your product and show the edge you have over the competition. Instead what readers of this post see is a PR disaster on your part.

        • brenda mawenu

          Dear Mr Wasirwa, it is with dismay and much regret that I have been following your responses to the various comments. Just to let you know that I still have not seen nor do I know where to find this Wesgas. I therefore still do not know how much it costs nor does it come with its own regulator and hose? Worst of all, I STILL DO NOT KNOW THIS ‘DIFFERENT DELIVERY MODEL’!!!
