PETRONAS PRIMAX95 Experience to Believe - Convoy from KL to Ipoh

Earlier this month, a few blogger and I were invited to experience the new PETRONAS PRIMAX95 with Advanced Energy Formula. We were told to drive our own personal car from KL to Ipoh to experience the difference that is made by the the new PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula. We gathered at Ben's, Publika and our destination is at Indulgence, Ipoh.

Meet up point at Ben's, Publika
We arrived at Ben's about 7.30am and we had our breakfast then followed by speeches from the VIP and convoy briefing by Mr Harinder Singh. 

Opening speech might be done by Petronas' fuel expert, Mr. Chan
 Mr Chan explained to us that PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula, which was launched in May this year, promises to deliver superior fuel economy in three ways. First, it cleans the engine to optimise fuel delivery. Secondly, it creates a finer fuel spray to enhance fuel combustion and energy release. Lastly, it reduces friction to minimise energy loss for superior fuel economy. These three key functions combine to deliver more mileage, hence, better for our wallet!


In short, the “Experience To Believe” programme is powered by PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula allowed us to experience the superior efficiency of the latest fuel from PETRONAS by convoying from KL to Ipoh with our personal vehicle.

Briefing by Mr Harinder Singh, you might have seen him before in some of the Driven YouTube videos by Paultan.org

I have been driving my SLK (small little kancil) for many years and I can tell you that the car has quite a low fuel consumption due to the small 850cc engine but with the price hike of petrol these days, even my SLK can cost me a lot of money to fuel up the petrol. I do look forward to better acceleration instead of just fuel economy.


We were all given a walkie talkie to communicate with our group leader, a RM100 Petrol Gift Card and RM70 pre-loaded Touch & Go card.



Flag off was done about 9am from Publika with 3 groups of cars. Each groups had about 10 cars. I was in group no.1 and car number 10 led by Mr Harinder Singh.


We managed to fuel up with PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula at the Petronas station along Penchala Link right after the tol plaza.


The scenic route took us through the FELDA region and it showcased the rural areas that are usually unseen by drivers who head down to Ipoh. I don't usually use the roads at the FELDA region but it's nice once a while to take a slow drive cruising and enjoying the scenery.


With couple of delay and also heavy rain during the journey, we arrived at Indulgence in Ipoh about 1pm in the afternoon.


All of us were treated to a sumptuous lunch at Indulgence. Following this was a memorable video shoot with participants sharing their real experience with the latest fuel.


That's me walloping the food like a hungry tiger :P

 We headed back to Publika, KL where we will be having a tea break and followed by an up close and personal with PETRONAS’ fuel experts while tapping on their extensive knowledge on fuel during the question and answer session.



Raja Mazhar Mohar Raja Mohar who is the Head of Customer Experience Department, Retail Business Division, PDB, shared some thoughts with us about the PETRONAS’ F1 experience and the unprecedented success the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 Team has enjoyed this season. Elaborating on the partnership, he said, “PETRONAS and the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 Team spent more than three years working closely to co-engineer a brand new range of customised fuel and lubricants that have helped create the most competitive race car in Formula OneTM this year.”

“The winning combination of PETRONAS PRIMAX and PETRONAS SYNTIUM, the team has collectively raced to 30 podium finishes with 15 wins – all with 30% less fuel. The team has already won the 2014 Constructor’s Championship and are well on course to win the Driver’s Championship as well,” he added.

He also said that the PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula is a product of their F1 involvement. The PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula has the same components as the fuel used in F1 with the only difference being the percentage composition. That's pretty cool isn't it? We sort of get to use the same fuel which is used by Lewis Hamilton and Nico Roseberg in the Formula One Grand Prix!


As for now, I am quite impressed with the performance and also successfully driving to and back from Ipoh with just one full tank in my SLK. It produces better acceleration for my car and I have better confidence when cutting off other vehicles on the road. I will continue using the PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula from now onward.
