RON 95 & RON 97

FYI, the petrol price for RON 97 will increase from RM1.80/liter to RM 2.00/liter wef?/span>1Sep'09
This RON 97 is common use for majority of our cars.
At the same time, another new petrol grade will be introduced which is RON 95 (with cheaper price, RM1.75/liter).
RON--> Research Octane Number
Octane number refers to the gasoline ability to withstand auto ignition inside the engin.
Simply said, RON97 is harder to ignite compared to RON95.
I believe some of us might switch from RON97 to RON95 due to the cheaper price.
BUT, you are adviced to check out your vehicle fuel requirement, to ensure compatibility and usability.
The effect of using lower RON then the requirement: KNOCKING ( poor perfomance of your vehicle)
There are 3 ways to check:-
1. from your vehicle guide book.
2. min Octane Number Rating at the back of the fuel lid cover
3. ask the car manufacturer.
