Petron Turbo Diesel is Proven Fuel Efficient

Based on Petron's R&D, test vehicles were able to achieve an average of 16.4% improvement in fuel efficiency after shifting to Petron Turbo Diesel. The 5-day performance run was observed and certified by representatives from the DOE- Energy Utilization Management Bureau, the Automobile Association of the Philippines, and the Society of Philippine Motoring Journalists. 

Twelve test vehicles, all loaded to their rated capacity, were subjected to real-world driving conditions in a 258 km route traversing the mountainous and winding roads of Bataan and the rolling terrain from Clark to Subic. Various types of diesel engine vehicles were fielded for this test drive: 2022 Nissan Terra 4.4 2.5L AT; 2022 Toyota Fortuner 2.4L AT; 2016 Toyota Fortuner 2.4L AT; 2016 Mitsubishi Montero 2.4L AT; 2022 Isuzu DMAX 2.0L AT; 2022 Mitsubishi Strada 2.5L AT; 2022 Maxus T60 2.8L AT; 2022 Maxus G10 1.9L AT; 2022 Isuzu Traviz 2.5L MT; 2019 Toyota Innova 2.8L AT; and 2022 BMW X1 1.8L AT.

Benchmark fuel efficiency data and driver ratings were first established using regular diesel. Subsequently, running the same route, the test vehicles were fueled with Petron Turbo Diesel loaded from a regular service station pump. After the first load, more than half of the test vehicles improved their fuel efficiency with an average of 16.4% additional distance gained per liter. These results confirm that most diesel engine vehicles whether new or old, can improve their fuel efficiency with the continued use of Petron Turbo Diesel. 

Also, comparing driver perception using regular diesel and Petron Turbo Diesel, all test drivers were asked to accomplish a rating form after each day's run. Consistent with the fuel efficiency gains, the drivers also perceived continuous daily improvement in engine response, engine power, and acceleration. In particular, the test drivers found the following statements to have the most significant improvement:

Engine response: I can feel immediate engine response going uphill even after a slowdown on a sharp curve.
Engine power: Driving at a steady pace is smooth with no loss of power.
Acceleration: I can feel the power on demand when I step on the accelerator.

The performance run confirmed the superior formulation of Petron Turbo Diesel as a high-performance, technologically-advanced fuel. Enhanced with multi-functional additives and higher cetane number, it is proven to deliver outstanding performance across different vehicle types and driving behavior.

According to Petron R&D, the high ignition quality and combustibility of Petron Turbo Diesel maximized fuel energy conservation, thus producing maximum engine power while maintaining fuel efficiency. Further, its proven ability to effectively clean up the fuel injection system and then preserve its cleanliness delivers exceptional protection and maintains optimum performance. 

As the only oil refiner in the country, Petron is laser-focused on providing Filipino motorists with fuels that have been road-tested in the real-world Philippine driving conditions. As with all other Petron fuels, Petron Turbo Diesel has proven that it delivers better engine protection for longer engine life, better mileage for longer drives, and better power for more enjoyable journeys.
