In not so many words, over a social media video post lasting 5 seconds, Petron Malaysia has confirmed that all its stations across Malaysia is now offering EURO 4M RON 95 Petron Blaze petrol, making it the third petroleum company in Malaysia to do so, after Shell (selected stations) and Petronas.

If you have missed our story yesterday, EURO 4M RON 95 had in fact been gazetted by the government to come into effect on 1st January, 2020. The low sulphur content of EURO 4M specified at 50 parts per million (ppm) or lower, compared to 500 ppm as mandated by the outgoing and hopelessly outdated EURO 2M standard. RON 97 petrol in Malaysia already complies with EURO 4M.

Interestingly, the shift to EURO 4M for RON 95 petrol was supposed to coincide with the implementation of the Petrol Subsidy Programme (PSP) for Malaysians categorised under the B40 group which would have resulted in the price of RON 95 petrol being pegged to market levels as fuel subsidies are gradually removed. However, the minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs announced that the PSP is postponed and that the price of RON 95 petrol will remain at RM 2.08 per litre, for now.
