Petronas Euro 5 diesel for S’wak
PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) extended its enhanced Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive to Sarawak, starting with Bintulu and Miri.
Launched by state Minister of Utilities, Datuk Sri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom, the new generation sulphur-free diesel, which was introduced in November last year in the Peninsular, is proven to deliver smoother drive and superior fuel economy with cleaner emission.
The high quality of the new diesel is achieved through Pro-Drive, a combination of reformulated higher quality base diesel from Petronas’ refinery and uniquely formulated chemistries designed for today’s advance common-rail diesel engine.
The Pro-Drivetechnology is made available 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 rally is known to be the world’s toughest and most demanding off-road endurance race and the team’s victory in the 2016 edition is testament to the fuel technology that goes into the Petronas Dynamic Diesel with Pro-Drive.
Petronas vice-president of downstream marketing Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin said nine Petronas stations in Bintulu and Miri would be selling the Euro 5 diesel grade by end of March.
“We are looking into increasing the availability to over 20 stations across Sarawak by this year,” he added.
Following the introduction in Sarawak, the Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is now available at selected 68 Petronas stations including those in Peninsular Malaysia.
