Petronas Euro 5 diesel for S’wak

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Launch -

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.
