Wherever I go within Malaysia, there are two petrol stations that are often seen. One is Shell and the other is Petronas. I am talking about the latter. Petronas has been a name that is often portrayed in the media as caring. They care enough to warn their customers of the dangers of driving while feeling sleepy as well as messages that involve wishing their customers a happy day during festivities such as Hari Raya and Chinese New Year.
After having my own driving experience for 4 years now, I find that their fuel makes my car run with a little bit less power compared to Shell. After the introduction of the Primax 95Xtra, it improved significantly in terms of performance in my car. I still stick to Petron, rebranded from Mobil and Esso, with Petronas being my number 2 choice. It's better than Shell from what I have experienced.
