rest. These nozzles will not fit into the fuel-filler hole of most cars
except old models.

VVTI,DOHC,EFI etc...are pumping 97RON..fear that 92ROn will shorten the
car`s engine life..and also think that "This is fuel injection car la..must put
97RON,92RON not suitable la..". Another would say "Aiya...few sens cheaper
In fact most modern cars nowdays have manuals stating "Minimum 90-91"
RON and hence the red color 91RON is fine. Should the RON is inadequate,
the ECU will detect it and make adjustments.
FYI Although I am driving a carb car and in fact....I run 92RON with no
Leaded days are over, all over the world...for the sake of enviromental

I agree with you ShiftXtrem...
Now days to find the petrol station selling RON 92 quite hard, unless at
Projet,others...banyak susah lorr...Maybe selling the RON92 tak untung..
So if anybody want to refuel RON 92, read your car's manual first! Normaly
it will stated what the min. requirement for your engine. For my Unser, it
is already stated min. RON 95, therefore tak leh buat apa-apa, but for my
old Toyota GL (KE 70) for sure RON 92 is too good! (min requiremnt RON 88

at Projet. This is my first time using ron92. Maybe after a couple of
time mixing it, i'll use ron92 full time. Actually a bit scared mixing
fuel since i used ron97 day1 I bought the car. Thnks everyone for
clearing the topic. Cheers..

Toyota Unser with 8-valve SOHC engine still need quite high octane? (No
means of insulting your engine)...thought the engine block derives completely
from the old Liteace 1.8 Premio, just change to EFI fuel system.
Theorically what you are doing is just increasing the RON 92 octane to
around 95 RON (94.5 to be exact).
Read your Kelisa manual again, the first few pages in front (for Perodua)..
If MYVI can do 90RON minimum with their DVVT,DOHC and especially a high
10.0:1 compression engine..why not a lower technological DOHC multivalve
And I`ve made myself clear, you can`t find anywhere leaded petrol in the
whole world, let alone Malaysia..

"And I've made myself clear, you can't find anywhere leaded petrol in the

Ya, sure, but I can bet my bottom ringgit with you the question will crop
up again in the next few months if not weeks.

If anyone took ur bet, u wud win the bet even rite now, juz read FrshOil's
post above: "RON 92 leaded is dispensed through pumps with bigger nozzles
than the rest. These nozzles will not fit into the fuel-filler hole of
most cars except old models." He's still believing his accountant fren 'in
the industry' that Ron92 Leaded is still sold in M'sia now.

I`ve tried it before.
The difference is..when u want to fill Diesel, you have to lift up the cover
before you can start filling up.

leaded petrol sold in the country. Any takers?
My problem is, I just had, a few months back in a pub a somewhat heated
argument with a "friend" about this subject, at the end we decided that
there is no more leaded petrol in the country, only Tiger beer is
unleaded ,Carlsberg is leaded and Anchor beer is "minyak lama" RON 92.
