Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PDB) has launched a new gasoline with a Research Octane Number (RON) of 97 that meets Malaysia’s Euro 4M specification.
The Euro 4M specification is scheduled to be implemented on 1 September.
Managing Director and CEO Ibrahimnuddin Yunus said Petronas Primax 97 was formulated with superior acceleration in mind.
“We are not only introducing a fuel that meets the gazetted requirement, motorists will also experience superior acceleration and ultimately an enhanced driving pleasure,” he said at the product launch on Aug. 19.
The Euro 4M-compliant fuel comes with lower benzene, sulphur content and Reid Vapour Pressure (RVP) levels compared to Euro 2M RON 97.
Around 60% of Petronas´ 1,060 gas stations in Malaysia will start selling this new fuel immediately.
“PDB is committed to ensuring and giving full support to the government implementation of the highest specification for the respective fuels as gazetted under the environmental quality regulations,” he said.
