Petron Blaze 100 1

Earlier in the week, Petron Malaysia revealed that it will be unveiling its new Petron Blaze 100 fuel on January 15. It was reported that the new RON 100 fuel – which will sit above the RON 95 and RON 97 grades currently available in its Blaze range of fuels – will first be rolled out at eight stations nationwide, with more set to come soon.

Now, Petron has revealed the stations that will carry Blaze 100 in the initial phase of its deployment. Six are located in the Klang Valley, while the remaining two are in Johor. The first eight Petron stations selling Blaze 100 are:

Klang Valley
1. Petron Jalan Maarof
2. Petron Sg. Besi Toll Southbound
3. Petron Taman Tun Dr. Ismail
4. Petron Kesas Westbound
5. Petron Mile 3 Federal Highway
6. Petron Damansara Kayu Ara

Johor
1. Petron Skudai Toll Northbound
2. Petron Linkedua Southbound

The pricing of the unregulated fuel has not been revealed – as mentioned previously, it’s likely to be pricey, higher than RM2.25 per litre for standard RON97 petrol, if the pricing by the other unregulated fuel sold in Malaysia, Shell V-Power Racing, is any indication. The latter has commanded a premium of between 45 and 55 sen over regular RON97 V-Power, based on pricing over the past six months.

The advent of Blaze 100 is a boon for motorists who own cars and motorcycles designed to run on RON98 and above (like the Honda Civic Type R, previous-gen Suzuki Swift Sport and Toyota 86, as well as high-end superbikes) – these machines should now be able to operate without any fuel-related performance or reliability issues.
