Petron Turbo Diesel Proven To Improve Fuel Mileage

A field test conducted by Petron R&D showed that vehicles were able to achieve an average 16.4 percent improvement in fuel efficiency after shifting to Petron Turbo Diesel. The five-day performance run was observed and certified by representatives from the Department of Energy – Energy Utilization Management Bureau, and the Automobile Association of the Philippines.

Twelve test vehicles, all loaded to their rated capacity, were subjected to real-world driving conditions in a 258-kilometer route traversing the mountainous and winding provincial roads of Bataan and the rolling terrain of the Clark to Subic section of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). 

Various types of diesel engine vehicles were fielded, consisting of:
  • 2022 Nissan Terra 4x4 2.5L AT
  • 2022 Toyota Fortuner 2.4L AT
  • 2016 Toyota Fortuner 2.4L AT
  • 2016 Mitsubishi Montero 2.4L AT
  • 2022 Isuzu D-Max 1.9L AT
  • 2022 Mitsubishi Strada 2.5L AT
  • 2022 Maxus T60 2.8L AT
  • 2022 Isuzu Traviz 2.5L MT
  • 2019 Toyota Innova 2.8L AT
  • 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 achieved an average distance gain of 11.9 percent. After the second load of Petron Turbo Diesel, the test vehicles improved their fuel efficiency with an average of 16.4 per percent 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.

Similarly, to compare driver perception of driving 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 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 (cetane number 60), 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.
