Petronas Dagangan has announced that its enhanced Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is now on sale in Sarawak. Launched over the weekend, the fuel will be available at nine selected Petronas stations in Bintulu and Miri by the end of March.

The fuel retailer added that it is looking into increasing the availability of the new generation sulphur-free diesel – which was introduced in November last year in the Peninsular – to over 20 stations across the state by this year.

The new clean diesel is claimed to offer a smoother drive and improved fuel economy, its superior quality achieved through Pro-Drive, a combination of reformulated higher quality base diesel from Petronas’ refinery and uniquely formulated chemistries designed for modern common-rail diesel engines.

Speaking at the launch, minister of utilites Dato Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom said that the new fuel is a welcome addition to the state. “Given that Sarawakians are largely dependent on diesel, this will assure motorists that not only are they driving a cleaner fuel, but also one that is more powerful, giving them a smoother and longer journey,” he said.

Following the introduction in Sarawak, the Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive is now available at 68 Petronas stations across the country.
