Details Of The All New Caltex® Euro4M Premium 97 with Techron®
Chevron Malaysia Limited, which markets the Caltex® brand, conducted an educational workshop sharing insights and the benefits of its EURO4M Premium 97 with Techron®. The implementation of the EURO4M fuel standard is Government mandated and comes into effect from 1 September 2015.
Participants had the opportunity to go behind the scenes with Greg Engeler, Senior Product Engineering Specialist, Team Leader Asia Pacific, Product Engineering, where Engeler provided his insights on the development of Euro4M Caltex® Premium 97 with Techron® along with the benefits and technology behind the Euro4M fuel standard.
“With the introduction of cleaner fuel standards such as Euro4M, infused into Caltex® Premium 97 with Techron®, motorists can be assured that their engines will be equipped with specially-formulated ingredients which would not only keep engines clean but also offers a maximisation of power, fuel economy, smoother drive, lower emissions and reliable performance,” said Engeler.
The Euro4M standard comes with lower benzene, sulphur content as well as Reid Vapour Pressure (RVP) levels which ensures good vehicle operability. With largely reduced sulphur content, it enables the rapid introduction of clean and efficient vehicle technologies for spark and compression ignition engines.
“The quality of fuel today is becoming increasingly important to ensure good vehicle performance. Without the right fuel, the engine won’t perform as well as it was designed to perform. We are committed to ensuring our customers are equipped with the best fuel and at Caltex, we are always looking for ways to make our customers’ journey enjoyable and memorable – be it in the form of products or services,” expressed Chevron Malaysia Limited’s Country Chairman, Shahid Ahmed.
The Caltex® Premium 97 with Techron® is a fuel that contains an effective deposit control addictive that is equipped with a unique ingredient, polyetheramine, which has been designed to clean fuel system deposits and prevent them from re-forming. Lower quality fuels can leave harmful deposits in the motor engine that would accumulate over time, which would cause the vehicle to stumble during acceleration, knock or lose its power.
