National oil and gas company Petronas had recently launched a new fuel named Petronas PRIMAX 95 Xtra. They have been teasing the public with what they have come out with for some time now and with the launch that coincides with the new tagline for the company ‘All The Way’, they seemed to be clicking the right notes of what is to come.
The new fuel was launched by the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Petronas Twin Towers last weekend at the Twin Towers @ Live 2011 Open Air Concert which the company claims to be inspired by Formula One technology. It supposedly is made to give more power while giving more fuel economy as compared to the currently used PRIMAX 95 which will be phased out and replaced. Early reviews have it that the new PRIMAX 95 Xtra is smoother as compared to the PRIMAX 95 although it is not as good as the RON97 obviously. Having said that, one cannot expect a 95 to be on par with the 97 so with what the new 95 fuel can offer, it will be a very much welcomed move indeed.
The PRIMAX 95 Xtra is now available in all its 950 stations nationwide. According to Amir Hamzah Aziz, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Petronas Dagangan, the new product is a result of the company’s continuing research and improvements in their PRIMAX line of products. This fuel is Euro-2M compliant and took 2 years to develop using advanced multifunctional additive to produce better combustion as well as to reduce internal friction thereby giving the vehicle better efficiency.
They have used a new synthetic detergent to complement the already efficient demulsifier and anti-corrosion material to ensure that the engine is constantly cleansed as well as in tip top condition and this is what makes the fuel more worth using as it supposedly incur more costs than before. What does this mean? It means that you actually get more power in a RON95 fuel as compared to other brands while better efficiency as well as mileage, which is one of the most important factors of driving these days, given the rising price of fuel around the world.
