Petronas introduced its new Petronas Primax 95 with Pro-Drive back in January this year, promising to provide customers with a smoother drive, improved engine response and enhanced fuel efficiency.

These deliverables are possible due to a specially developed petrol formula that features a new multi-functional additive package, which includes the world’s first dual friction modifier. The company touts lower frictional losses by 20% when compared to its previous formulation that only uses a single friction modifier.

The formulation also consists of a double dose of synthetic detergents to eliminate up to 99% carbon deposits, while keeping injectors clean. Furthermore, a new anti-corrosion additive provides double the protection for engines to ensure superior engine performance.

To validate these claims, we at, together with Petronas, invited owners of Mercedes-Benz and BMW vehicles to try out Petronas Primax 95 with Pro-Drive for themselves by taking part in the Experience to Believe (E2B) convoy drive.

With modern vehicles (some being hybrids) requiring high quality fuels to be able to operate at their most optimum, the E2B drive served as a good platform to determine if regular vehicle owners would be able to feel the difference with Petronas’ latest RON 95 petrol formulation.

As far as responses go, the general consensus among the E2B participants was a smoother driving experience while behind the wheel. Meanwhile, some users even claimed to gain better fuel economy with no sacrifice to engine performance as well.
