JOHOR BARU: The RON 95 petrol and Euro 2M grade diesel will hit the market by Sept 1, the Domestic Trade And Consumer Affairs Ministry announced.
Its Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad said the prices for both upgraded fuels would be the same as the previous grades.
“Not all cars use RON 92 petrol. The change will give consumers better alternatives in quality at a lower price,” he told pressmen here on Saturday.
He added that the announcement to replace current grades of fuel was made last year.
“Most cars need only RON 95 and do not require higher-octane levels,” he said.
On the diesel upgrade to EURO 2M, he said the Government aimed to introduce a higher quality fuel for modern diesel engines.
“The new upgrade will result in cleaner emissions and a better environment,” he said, adding that the current diesel fuel was of the lowest grade due to its high sulphur content.
