We’ve been reporting about the introduction of Euro 5 diesel on our shores – required due to tightening emissions regulations in Singapore – and now it’s finally here, with BHPetrol being the first petroleum company in Malaysia to launch the fuel at its station at the Pagoh southbound rest stop in Johor earlier today.

The fully-imported Infiniti Euro 5 Diesel – sold at a regulated price of RM2.30 per litre, 10 sen more than regular Euro 2M diesel – will be offered at this station, as well as the BHPetrol station at the Pagoh northbound rest stop, BHPetrol Tebrau 2 and BHPetrol Pasir Gudang 3, beginning today. Another seven stations in Johor will be outfitted with the new fuel within two weeks.

Euro 5 diesel has a sulphur content of just 10 parts per million (ppm), compared to 500 ppm for current Euro 2M diesel. On top of that, BHPetrol has added a double dose of German additives.

The company says that modern advanced diesel engines using Euro 5 diesel will be able to meet the 40 Hartridge Smoke Units (HSU) emissions standard set by the Singapore National Environmental Agency (NEA) on July 1.


Due to the low price of Euro 5 diesel in our country compared to neighbouring regions – including Singapore – only Malaysian-registered vehicles will be able to be filled with the fuel.

“Our new BHPetrol Infiniti Euro 5 Diesel will be the fuel of choice for advanced diesel engine vehicles that require low sulphur diesel to achieve optimum performance,” said Boustead Petroleum Marketing managing director Tan Kim Thiam. “The introduction of Euro 5 diesel will encourage car companies to introduce vehicles with advanced diesel engines, thus Malaysians will have more choice.”
