Malaysia Petrol Grade from RON97 to RON95

Tuesday, August 25, 2009 | Labels: | 28 comments |

FYI, the petrol price of Malaysia for RON 97 will increase from RM1.80/liter to RM 2.00/liter in 1Sep'09. This RON 97 is common use for majority of our cars.

In the same time, another petrol will be introduced which is RON 95 (with cheaper price, RM1.75/liter).

RON--> Research Octane Number
Octane number is refer to the gasoline ability to withstand auto ignition inside the engin.
Simply say, RON97 is harder to ignite compared to RON95.

I believe some of us might switch from RON97 to RON95 due to more cheaper price.
Car owners are adviced to check it out your vehicle fuel requirement.
Effect if use lower RON then the requirement: KNOCKING ( poor perfomance of your vehicle)

There are 3 ways to chk:-
1. From your vehicle guide book.
2. Min Octane Number Rating at the back of the fuel lid cover
3. Car manufacturer.
4. Refer table below
