Following the successful launch of its Euro 4 gasoline products in June, market leader Petron Corporation last week announced its diesel products, Turbo Diesel and DieselMax, now meet global Euro 4 fuel standards.
With this, Petron marks an industry first as the only oil company capable of locally producing a full range of premium fuels that meet the cleaner and more efficient Euro 4 global standard.
Petron’s four Euro 4 gasoline variants—Blaze 100 Euro 4 (RON 100), XCS (RON 95), Xtra Advance (RON 93), and Super Xtra (RON 91)—are available nationwide.
Euro 4 is a globally–accepted European emission standard for vehicles which require significantly low amount of sulfur (0.005 percent or 50 parts per million) and benzene (maximum of 1 percent by volume).
All Petron Euro 4 fuels boast of better engine protection, better mileage and better power over other Euro 2 fuels. Petron fuels are locally produced at its refinery in Bataan and formulated for Philippine driving conditions. Petron also operates a fuel additives blending plant in Subic Bay in partnership with Innospec, a leading global fuel specialties company. The plant supplies tailor-fit additives for Petron’s six fuel variants—the most extensive in the local oil industry.
Petron invested $2 billion to further upgrade its Bataan Refinery and make it at par with the most advanced refineries in the region. Dubbed the Refinery Master Plan-2 (RMP-2), Petron can now produce more higher-value products such as gasoline and petrochemicals while eliminating negative margin fuel oil.
