Petron Powers AAP Caravan
Petron Blaze 100 Euro 4 was the official fuel of the Quezon Drive Tour Caravan held last November 29-30, 2014, and organized by AAP Travel, a fully-owned subsidiary of Automobile Association Philippines (AAP).
With the theme, A Heritage and Culinary Expedition, the participants explored the cultural and historical landmarks in the towns of Tayabas, Lucban, Sariaya and Tiaong, while their taste buds were enticed by tasting native dishes such as kulawo, the natural charcoal-cooked-banana heart savored with spices; and pilipit, a doughnut-like pastry made from sticky rice and squash coated with melted brown sugar.
The caravan had a very festive environment with exciting activities such as the Pancit Habhab Challenge, eating the local noodles with bare hands; and Tagayan Challenge, non-stop drinking of lambanog, the local wine.
The caravan explored Quezon’s heritage treasures including the Malagonlong Bridge, a 445 ft. long stone bridge built by the Spaniards in 1841; the Minor Basilica of St. Michael de Archangel, one of the longest churches in the country with 338 ft. long aisle; and the Casa Comunidad, Tayabas’ grand edifice built in 1831 as a tribunal.
The AAP - Petron Blaze 100 Euro 4 Quezon Drive Tour Caravan culminated in a pottery-making workshop with Augusto “Ugu” Bigyan, a ceramic artist who opened his exquisite home and garden to the public as an art gallery, workshop and showroom.
As the country’s leading oil company, Petron strongly advocates responsible driving, and promotes safe and fun travels. Petron fuels are specially formulated for Philippine road conditions. In particular, Petron Blaze 100 Euro 4 is a revolutionary fuel formulated to unleash the full potential of high performance vehicles. It is the only Euro 4 compliant fuel with 100-octane rating, and delivers powerful performance while meeting stringent emission standards. It is the premium plus gasoline of choice with 90% less sulfur and 50% less benzene, for high-end, high performance vehicles. It is formulated with fully-synthetic additive, organic combustion enhancer, and friction modifier that provide outstanding engine performance, improved fuel economy, and reduced emissions. These attributes make it a perfect match for the AAP Caravan, which aims to promote community tourism, environmental protection, and road safety.
And, as an added bonus, the caravan participants had a chance to win instant prizes when they fueled up at Petron because there are over half-a-million prizes to be won with Petron’s ongoing Fast Prize promo.
