RON 95 pumps up popularity among motorists

KUALA LUMPUR: Motorists are taking to the newly- introduced RON 95 petrol.
Petronas Dagangan Berhad senior general manager (retail business division) Mohd Fadzlan Abdul Samad said early sales at Petronas stations in Putrajaya showed that many people were buying the Primax 95 petrol.
Mohd Fadzlan said 65% of users at the two Petronas stations at Putrajaya offering the petrol have switched to using the product since it was launched in May.
“We predict that by the time it’s available nationwide on Sept 1, more people will switch to RON 95,” he said when launching the sale of Primax 95 at the Petronas station at the Middle Ring Road 2 in Kepong here on Tuesday.
Petronas is the only company offering RON 95 for now. The new petrol grade is priced at RM1.75 per litre.
The station in Kepong was also the first Petronas station in Kuala Lumpur and the third in Malaysia to provide RON 95.
