Petron To Power Participants At First Philippine Overland Expedition


Industry leader Petron Corporation will be powering the vehicles taking on the first Petron Philippine Overland Expedition happening from October 12 to 16, 2022.

Designed for off-road enthusiasts, the event will offer two options: For adventure enthusiasts, the Overland Challenge will see 4x4 vehicles navigating slippery trails and terrains while competing for prizes. On the other hand, families and friends just wanting to travel and enjoy the off-road camping experience can participate in the Overland Expo.

Petron will use the event to shine a spotlight on its fuels and lubricants that are specially formulated to meet the exacting demands of off-roading.

Typically, these rugged 4-wheel drive vehicles are powered by turbocharged diesel engines capable of carrying heavy loads. With Petron Rev-X HTP, Petron Turbo Diesel, and Petron DieselMax, the overlanders can ensure the peak performance of their vehicles, so they can enjoy this adventure to the full.

To prepare their vehicles for the rigors of the Petron Philippine Overland Expedition, all participating vehicles will benefit from an engine tune-up using the top-of-the-line Petron REV-X HTP, a high-premium fully synthetic 5W-40 engine oil that offers High Temperature Protection (HTP). It is highly recommended for high-performance diesel engines. Its Polyalphaolefin (PAO) base oil offers significant advantages over mineral base oils as its outstanding oxidation and thermal stability reduce engine stress. Petron REV-X HTP is also formulated with performance additives that help prevent soot and piston deposits, thus maintaining superior engine cleanliness and efficiency, while preventing wear and corrosion for longer engine life.

Fueling the vehicles during the grueling off-road challenging is Petron Turbo Diesel. A high-performance and technologically-advanced premium diesel, it boasts a Cetane Number (CN) of 60, far exceeding the Philippine National Standard. Its high cetane and premium additive formulation allow Petron Turbo Diesel to deliver more power, better engine response, and improved fuel efficiency. For high-end vehicles with turbocharged diesel engines, using it delivers extraordinary engine performance and a more enjoyable driving experience. At the same time, older diesel engines will be able to achieve better fuel efficiency and improved emissions due to its rapid clean-up and power restoration formulation and combustion-enhancing properties.

Meanwhile, for those campers joining the Overland Expo, Petron DieselMax is a high-quality diesel formulated as a low-sulfur premium product. It delivers superior performance, particularly for medium to high-speed diesel engines. It has a unique and robust multifunctional additive that contains a smoke-reducing agent for instant and sustained cleaner emissions. It also has a lubricity additive to protect against engine wear. Its outstanding detergency helps maintain and improve fuel injection system cleanliness.

Having served the fuel needs of the country for almost 90 years, only Petron has a deep understanding of the unique driving conditions on Philippine roads. Its R&D team is constantly striving to create diverse products that will deliver optimum efficiency for every type of vehicle that meet the most stringent fuel technology and emission benchmarks in the world today.
