Euro 4M Now Available at PETRONAS Stations
The PETRONAS Primax 95 with Pro-Drive has been upgraded to Euro 4M standard, ahead of its gazetted date in January 2020. The quality upgrade is a mandatory requirement by the Government to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality.

The Euro 4M standard contains just 50 parts per million (ppm) sulphur, which is10 times less than Euro 2M standard for RON 95 petrol. Additionally, benzene content is reduced by 30% to 3.5% while vapour pressure is reduced by 7% to 65kPa.

This means the fuel is cleaner for both the environment and engine. 
Move Like Never Before
The all-new PETRONAS Primax 95 with Pro-Drive is designed to meet every driver’s needs and the most demanding engine requirements. Diligently designed via our global capabilities to deliver smoothness, responsiveness, and efficiency for your drive.

The new active ingredients in the formulation is proven to make your vehicle feel lighter at the touch of the pedal and empowers you to move like never before. This breakthrough was developed through three defining phases - Design, Develop and Deliver.

Now with Euro 4M standard, the fuel is cleaner for the environment and provides protection to the engine.
DESIGN
The new fuel has been designed based on driver’s needs in today’s driving condition and in anticipation of future engine technology, most demanding being hybrids.
The new PETRONAS Primax 95 with Pro-Drive delivers smoothness, responsiveness, and efficiency for your drive through these three attributes.

Over and above these, the lower sulfur content in Euro 4M standard protects sulfur-sensitive engine exhaust control system for better emission quality.
DEVELOP
The new fuel was developed with close collaboration amongst our global scientists, engineers and the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport F1 team, leveraging on our facilities in Europe.
The new PETRONAS Primax 95 with Pro-Drive introduced a newer and enhanced pro-drive formulation to make your vehicles move like never before.
*Compared to standard fuel
In 2018, we had carried out a blind test with over 200 popular locally and internationally made vehicles, comparing it against our previous PETRONAS Primax 95 and other samples in the market.

The results were very encouraging, with over 70% of the participants indicated that the new fuel performed better than their current fuel in terms of smoothness, responsiveness and efficiency.

Hybrid
We have seen a rapid adoption and implementation of hybrids technology by the automotive industry over the past years. This has contributed to the introduction of engine evolution for Malaysian market which we believe to be beneficial for today’s driving condition.


An ethnographic study between vehicle and the fuel to the owners has contributed to the all-new PETRONAS Primax 95 with Pro-Drive.
A good fuel should deliver these roles hand in hand to the drivers which include convenience, confidante, safety, saviour, and bond.
Types of drivers depend on the frequency of drive which is classified into routine drive, enjoyment drive, holiday drive, and emergency drive.
Fuel that works efficiently throughout the journey, from the start of the drive, to during and after
Starting Journey

Instant and smooth engine start
During Journey

Responsive during change of lane, going uphill, out of junction and overtaking
AFTER Journey

Ready for next trip
Less visits to the workshop
Fuel economy
The equation above explains how a whole journey is influenced by the role of fuel and the type of drivers.

Formula One™ engineering, for everyone.

World’s first dual Friction Modifier in one formulation that reduces >20%* of friction in the engine.
* Compared to conventional technology
Easily detach from metal surface by interlayer interactions
Stronger attachment to the metal surface & provide additional filming

Customised Detergent cleanses up to 99% of carbon deposit in the engine to give finer spray and more efficient combustion.
* Compared to previous PETRONAS formulation
Cleaner engine to prevent power loss

The enhanced anti-corrosion protects the engine and maintain superior engine performance.
Monodentate thus easier to desorb from the metal surface that should be protected.
Rust is visible on the testing rod
Multidentate chemistry that provides much stronger binding to the metal surface, hence better protection.
No rust observed on the testing rod.
The new corrosion inhibitor provides better compatibility with lubricant, no harmful effect while other common technology show reaction with lubricant.
