Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) has introduced a new fuel i.e. PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race which is engineered to meet the demands of current high technology engines and give more powerful, responsive and efficient performance.
The new PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race is formulated with the world’s first Advanced Dual Friction Modifier. This modifier is 25% more efficient in reducing friction than the previous version. It also lowers carbon emission by enhancing the fuel and oil interaction whilst increasing fuel efficiency for better mileage. The new fuel also helps remove 99.9% of deposits from key areas in the engine, thus unlocking the engine’s potential to achieve better power delivery.
“The new PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race is our best fuel, as the new formulation was designed to cater to advanced engine technologies and meet the high-performance driving needs of our customers today. Having translated our fluid technology from track to road, we are very excited to finally let our customers experience an effortless drive, achievable through the 3-in-1 benefit comprising power, responsiveness and efficiency,” said PDB Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Azrul Osman Rani.
This new fuel leverages on PETRONAS’ experience in the development of fluid technology that powered the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 team to win its seventh consecutive FIA F1 World Constructors Championship in 2020.
Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 world champion driver concurred: “The competitiveness on the racetrack, is intense. I need a fuel that gives me the power to move beyond – when I accelerate, when I take corners and when I need to get ahead of the pack. PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race is the fuel that gives your car the power as and when it needs most. I know what power means. You should too.”
The performance of the new fuel was affirmed by customers through a series of blind tests. Conducted in real driving and road conditions, the test results revealed that 2 out of 3 participants experienced better performance from PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race compared to other premium fuels that they currently use. Specifically, 69% concurred that the new fuel delivers more power while 66% agreed that it is more responsive. In terms of efficiency, 73% of participants confirmed that the new fuel recorded more kilometers per liter, whilst emitting less carbon.
“The results of the blind tests and feedback from the drivers are truly encouraging. As a leading energy and solutions partner, we continuously seek out avenues to refine and improve our offerings to remain as customers’ brand of choice. We are confident that the new PETRONAS Primax 97 with Pro-Race will surpass customers’ expectations and delight their driving experience,” Azrul added.
