BHPetrol once again takes the lead by introducing Euro5 diesel to the Klang Valley, after being the first petroleum company to bring in the fully-imported fuel in Johor last November.
As of today, only the Sg Besi Highway BHP station is selling the RM2.05 fuel (10 sen more than Euro2 diesel), with at least eight other stations set to introduce the fuel by 13 August 2015. These stations are – BHPetrol Subang Airport, Jalan Genting Klang (KL bound), MRR2 Highway, Kesas Highway (KL bound), Mutiara Damansara, Pulau Indah Highway, Jalan Batu Caves and Taman Connaught, Cheras (click here for full address). The company aims to introduce their Infiniti Euro5 diesel to at least 20 stations in the Klang Valley.
BHPetrol’s Infiniti Euro5 diesel is an extremely clean fuel with considerably low sulphur content of 10 ppm (parts per million), compared to Euro2m’s 500 ppm. Besides being a much cleaner fuel than the existing Euro2 diesel, Euro5 is mixed with high grade German additives to ensure that diesel engines can operate smoothly without suffering from premature wear or damage. It can also go as far as to increase the engine’s performance by delivering more power whilst yielding better fuel economy.
In the video above, our peers from Car Malaysia magazine put three vehicles – BMW 520d, Nissan Navara and Peugeot 508 GT to the test to see just how much gains one can get by making the switch from Euro2 to Euro5 diesel. The results speak for themselves, with all three vehicles experiencing power and torque increase, most notably the Navara which gained close to 39 Nm of torque!
The introduction of Euro5 diesel in Malaysia will certainly encourage more car manufacturers to bring in diesel variants from their stable. After all, that’s the prospect all of us are looking forward to, no? Mazda, if you’re reading this, it’s about time to call upon the Mazda2 Skyactiv-D‘s arrival.
