National fuel retailers Petronas have announced that its Primax 95 with Pro-Drive fuels supply is now compliant with the government’s newly mandated Euro 4M standards for RON95 fuels. The latter is poised for enforcement effective from January 1, 2020.
Though only the second fuel retailer to announce its compliance with the new ruling this week, it is the first retailer to have the new fuel type available at all of its stations nationwide as of December 24.
The new Euro 4M RON95 fuel standards set by the government dictates for a lower sulphur content of just 50 parts per million (ppm) - a stark contrast from the previous Euro 2M RON95 standard’s count of 500ppm.
On top of which, Petronas notes that its Euro 4M-spec Primax 95 with Pro-Drive fuel benefits further with reduced benzene content and vapour pressure. The former now reads at 3.0 per cent from 3.5 per cent previously, whilst the latter's 65kPa reading sees a 7 per cent reduction too.
“With this upgrade, our customers will not just enjoy a smoother, more responsive and efficient drive, but also a cleaner fuel which works together with today's modern vehicles in reducing air pollution to deliver both health and climate benefits,” expressed Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed M Tahir, MD and CEO of Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB).
