From RON97 to RON95?

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister has just announced that the current RON92 petrol sold in the country will be replaced by RON95, and selling at the price of RM1.75 per litre. It will be made available nationwide by 1 September 2009.

The price of RON97 super-fuel will also be increased from the current RM1.80 per litre to RM2.00 from 1 September 2009 onwards, which is a rise of 11.11%. This is a drastic move to encourage the people to switch from current RON97 to RON95. It is argued that RON95 can be used in majority of the petrol-fueled cars on the road.

How will be the performance of RON95 compared with RON97? We have no idea yet until we have used the RON95 and benchmark it with RON97.

However, we can make reference to the comparison between Shell Super (RON97) and Shell V-Power (RON98). The information about Shell V-Power is RON98 can be confirmed in Shell Malaysia website (you can click the link to go to the "V-Power Fuel Composition" page in that website).

So what's the different between Shell V-Power (RON98) and Shell Super (RON97)? What will be the different between RON97 and RON95 then?

And no doubt, the Shell V-Power will also be priced higher by 1 September 2009, following the price increase of RON97.

It is a pity that we are told to downgrade the fuel we use in our car from RON97 to RON95, or have to pay a higher price to maintain the same after 1 September 2009. While the global world is moving forward, why we always have a feeling that we are moving backward?

Malaysia Boleh... we boleh blah. *sigh*

I truly believe that during the reign of tun Dr. M as PM, we're much more developed and open minded. Tun Abdullah screwed a lot of things up, and now mr. bombastic needs to clean up the bloody mess.

人民被逼降级使用的较低级的燃料,我们的汽车从RON97到RON95,虽然全球的世界是向前发展,为什么我们总是有一种感觉,我们正在落后?
如果要维持使用RON97,就得付出更高的价格好让我们的汽车吃贵油。。

You could use BTM3 Bio Booster. It will boost the octane number for RON 95 to RON 116. It will have better performance than RON 97. Try and test it. Go to website www.btm3.co.cc
