The 1902 petrol order involved 6000 liters purchased through the Maison Peyrissac. Most of it didn't arrive, but remained blocked in St. Louis or in small quantities at various locations along the Senegal River, where it disappeared. The railroad used petrol in "propulseurs" (outboard motors used on the river).
