    Hai, anyone mind sharing their favourite fuel in terms of performance for their car? At first I thought, I have no preference in terms of fuel consumption and mileage, just pump in any that is nearby when I need it.

    But nowadays, I feel like I need to know some basic knowledge of the many fuels that we have. Shouldn’t be too ignorant bout these things….

    What you need to know most importantly is your engine is tuned/optimized for which fuel Ron. Then just fill up that exact Ron, no need higher than that. You would also need to know the minimum Ron that your engine can still drink without problems, so if you want to save a bit then just fill up that but not lower. For example Suzuki Swift Sport M16A engine is optimized for Ron 98 with minimum Ron 95, so if want to get the best performance then fill up 98 (mix 95 and 100 with roughly 2:3 ratio). If want to save then can still fill up 95.

    As for the brand, no conclusive evidence if one brand is better or worse, so just pick which ever is more convenient or gives more rewards. I personally always fill up Petron because it gives the best reward of rm45 free fuel@3000 points.

    This is the normal type of petrol that we use daily and have a certain quality of it. But different company will produce with different formula that Petronas PRIMAX 95 Drive Pro which is a strong formula that coming out a new more improve petrol to the consumer that more care about his car engine clean and work well.

    Maybe you can try BHP, i just switch from Petron to BHP recently after BHP introduce the 800ppm. I use it on Suprima S , not bad bro. Although it might be just my feeling haha.

    That has been a while...Just try around to see which one best suits your engine.

    Like me, previously loyal with Caltex but now will pump BHP or Petron whenever possible. Seems to perform better than Caltex on FC and driving experience.
    Its just that Petron and BHP not located on my normal route.

    Petronas?
    I am forced to pump it as diverting to another route to pump in Petron/BHP/Caltex is just too much of a hassle. U know lah, Melaka got soo many traffic lights.

    Shell?
    Never pump anymore...i will nurse my bike or car with super low fuel level and find other petrol station which most of the time will be Petronas as they have the most number of station around.

    I stop pump fuel at petronas already, Petronas fuel will make my engine knocking :banghead:

    For Shell, I have bad millage on it.

    Petron was my favourite. 3000 point can get rm 45 free fuel hahaha. :rofl:

    Caltex i never tried yet due to far from my house, first choice BHP second Petron. Last choice ... petronas :bawling:

    Seems many chose Petron or BHP, for my VR same case. All the while Petron, then tried BHP not bad, then tried Shell, straight away no power, so dare not try others, so stick to Petron of BHP.....
