    I pumped in Petronas todayon my way bacl to Kuala Pilah as too lazy taking detour to find Caltex or BHP or Petron.

    I know its too early to say but i feel like this new formula is better than the old one. I felt like i am using BHP. I will see these 1-2 days when i will used up the fuel and see the fc.

    New petronas fuel returned 12.9km/l on my blm. That means its better as normally it returned 11km/l.

    However its still too early to say its better. Now work resume after long holiday, lets see if my ex5 can runs further between refill.

    Hmm? That's not how it works la. Eh wait.. I think I have it all mixed up. Sulphur is the fuel. ZINC is the one that's high in HPR Penrite. @ixeo - sorry. I messed up my facts.

    i hardly put Petronas since they were on the bad spotlight a few times. Plus one time i rent a car and put in Petronas and notice they fuel did not fill compare to other brands.

    from that day i stopped using it, since u said the new formula is good maybe i check and see.

    i am now using anything but not petronas more frequent Shell or Petron. If good mood i put higher RON as the fuel consumption is better IMO.

    I'm surprised you're ok with Shell. Everyone I've met have either said it's bad or can't tell a difference. I avoid Shell like the plague

    Again...it perform better on my EX5 compared to the old Petronas formula. Havent see whats the fc is like but after first quarter tank being used it looks promising.

    It felt better than the old Petronas formula only but not on par with Petron...maybe close or the same as BHP.

    The bike dont struggle or hesitate as much when opening the throttle at higher gear. Cruising at 90kmh felt easier and less strained.its not as easy as when i was on RON 97.

    THIS PETRONAS I BOYCOTT !!!

    it is the one also i got cheated with a rental car, put RM20 it is like putting in RM10 or below...

    it is so called under-maintenance (I didnt pass here a long time so i dont know if it is openned or not)

    Caltex is alright, i just dont like them marketing using that "MythBustard dude"
