SHAH ALAM – Petron Malaysia Refining and Marketing Bhd today introduced the RON100 oil that complied with Euro-4M standard in theÂ Malaysian market.
The premium oil, Blaze 100 Euro 4M, currently retailed at RM2.80 per litre, is now available in eight service stations in Klang Valley and Johor with another 30 to 40 stations expected to carry the high grade fuel in the next few months based on customer demand.
Petron has 560 stations nationwide.
Petron’s Head of Retail, Faridah Ali, said the oil, which has the highest RON or Research Octane Number in the market, has exceptional resistance to “engine knocking” which damaged car engines.
“The launch of Petron Blaze 100 Euro 4M is part of our promise to Malaysian motorists to introduce innovative fuels and services,” she told a press conference after the launch of the petrol by Minister of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, near here today.
She said the Blaze 100 Euro 4M petrol was produced at the company’s Port Dickson refinery under stringent quality controls.
“The high-performance fuel also meets Euro 4M specification resulting in less emissions and better air quality,” she said.
Meanwhile, Hamzah said, the oil and gas industry in the country has contributed immensely towards the nation’s economy besides providing job opportunities.
“We also want the convenience stores located at the petrol stations to market local products for the benefit of economic growth,” he said. – BERNAMA
