Chevron Malaysia Limited has introduced the new Caltex with Techron fuel. Available in grades RON95 and RON97, the fuel has been improved with the addition of Clean & Glide technology that is specifically formulated to clean and protect metal surfaces within the engine.
Chevron, which markets the Caltex brand in the country, claims that the improved fuel will result in reduced friction and thus wear and tear between key engine components. The new technology will also help to enhance engine protection, improve fuel economy and maximise power.
The Clean & Glide technology was proven in the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) laboratory test, and has accumulated up to 600,000km of real world fleet tests to ensure the final formula provides optimum results for motorists.
The results indicated that when compared to its predecessor in a controlled environment, Caltex’s new formulation was able to reduce metal wear and friction by an average of 38% and 41% respectively using petrol from around Asia Pacific and South Africa. Separate lab tests showed an improved fuel efficiency by up to 3%, when compared to the previous formulation.
Additionally, the company also introduced the “Caltex Fun Truck” contest (also known as “Techron Lab on Wheels Truck”) that will take place from now till 29 May 2016. To participate, members of the public need to snap a selfie with the truck and upload it on the Caltex Malaysia Facebook page or on personal Instagram with hashtags #CaltexMYNewTechron and #SpotCaltexFunTruck.
Over a period of four weeks, five weekly winners will walk away with StarCash cards worth RM200 and be featured in Caltex’s promotional materials.
Members of the public will have the chance to spot the truck at “Techron Lab on Wheels Truck” roadshow at selected Caltex service stations. Check out the dates and locations of the roadshow below.
