Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PDB) has made available its new Euro 5 standard Dynamic Diesel With Pro-Drive in 58 Petronas service stations nationwide, and plans to expand its availability to 115 stations in the near future.
Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is a cleaner-burning sulphur-free diesel that delivers a smoother drive and improved fuel economy. The Pro-Drive recipe is a combination of reformulated higher quality base diesel, from Petronas’ refinery, and a customized formulation that’s suited to modern common-rail diesel engines.
The Pro-Drive technology was developed from Petronas’ partnership with IVECO (the Italian industrial vehicles manufacturer) and their foray in the demanding Dakar Rally endurance race via the Petronas De Rooy IVECO team; the team was victorious in the 2016 race.
Dato’ Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of PDB said “Petronas’ involvement in the Dakar Rally has provided us a platform to study the requirements of the latest high performance common-rail direct-injection diesel-powered vehicles and continuously improve our products to meet even the most extreme driving conditions.”
Based on laboratory tests, Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive removes deposits and protects the injectors thus ensuring optimum engine performance. When compared with other diesel fuels found in the market, Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is found to have a higher cetane number which means better fuel combustion that results in lower noise, emissions, and a smoother drive.
The company also noted that Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive has a higher heating value which means it provides more energy per kilogram of fuel; a more complete burn equates to less fuel wastage and that translates to better fuel economy and lower emissions.
