Following its roll-out in Semenanjung Malaysia, PETRONAS retail arm, PETRONAS Dagangan Bhd (PDB), has introduced its latest PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive in Sarawak, starting with Bintulu and Miri in 9 selected PETRONAS stations. This will eventually be available in over 20 stations across Sarawak this year.
Pro-Drive is a combination of reformulated higher quality base diesel from PETRONAS’ refinery and a unique formula of additives designed for modern advanced common-rail diesel engines. The Pro-Drive technology comes from PETRONAS’ continuous learnings from its partnership with IVECO, an Italian industrial vehicle manufacturing company, to formulate a winning formula for PETRONAS De Rooy IVECO team competing in the Dakar Rally, the world’s toughest and most demanding off-road endurance race. The team’s victory in the 2016 edition is testament to the fuel technology that goes into the PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel with Pro-Drive.
Based on the laboratory tests, PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive removes deposits and protects the injectors thus ensuring a clean engine for optimum efficiency and longer engine life. Compared to other diesel fuels in the market, test results show that PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive recorded a higher cetane number, which helps to improve combustion for a smoother drive, cleaner emission and lower noise. PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive also has higher heating value, meaning it produces more energy per kilogram of fuel to deliver better fuel economy.
“Sarawak very much welcomes this new generation of sulphur-free diesel, given that Sarawakians are largely dependent on diesel. This will assure motorists that not only are they driving a cleaner fuel, but also one that is more powerful, giving them a smoother and longer journey,” said Minister of Utilities, Dato Sri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom.
PETRONAS’ Vice President of Downstream Marketing, Datuk Seri Hj Syed Zainal Abidin Bin Syed Mohd Tahir said, “We recognise that the state is undergoing rapid development with a few mega projects in the pipeline including the Pan Borneo Highway and demand for quality diesel will grow in tandem. We hope to speed up the availability as fast as possible to cater to this growing demand.”
Following the introduction in Sarawak, the PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is now available at selected 68 PETRONAS Stations including Peninsular Malaysia. For more information about the new fuel and availability, visit www.mymesra.com.my
