Cetane boosters optimize performance of Petron Turbo Diesel


Petron, the country’s leading oil company, is making its mark as a fuel innovator with the introduction of specially formulated fuels, such as the new Petron Turbo Diesel.

A high-performance diesel designed to deliver that optimum driving experience, Petron Turbo Diesel contains a technologically-advanced cetane booster, resulting in a cetane number higher than other diesel fuels in the market.

According to Wikipedia, “Cetane number or CN is a measurement of the combustion quality of diesel fuel during compression ignition.  It is a significant expression of diesel fuel quality…”

A high cetane number indicates that the diesel fuel has a shorter ignition delay from the start of injection to start of combustion.  It causes lower rates of pressure rise and lower peak pressures, thus lessening combustion noise and vibration, and resulting in increased efficiency.  The cetane boosters in Petron Turbo Diesel ensure better ignition quality for quicker engine start-up, improved fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions.

Petron Turbo Diesel also contains a robust multifunctional detergent additive that delivers non-stop cleaning action.  This keeps the fuel system and the engine clean by preventing residue build-up and removing deposits and contaminants.

A premium organic combustion enhancer that promotes more efficient and complete combustion is part of the special formulation of Petron Turbo Diesel.  This unique fuel conditioner crates a catalytic reaction that enables more oxygen to combine with carbon molecules to produce a more complete fuel burn, thus generating more power and faster acceleration.

With its enhanced and advanced additive technology, Petron Turbo Diesel offers motorists a high-performance diesel fuel that delivers the following benefits:  Superior acceleration and performance, reduction of engine noise and ignition delay, cleaning of fuel injectors, protection against engine corrosion, improvement of cold start performance, and reduction of exhaust emissions.

Petron Turbo Diesel is the ideal fuel for high-end vehicles with common rail direct injection (CRDI) diesel engines, as its multi-additive formulation has been customized to deliver extraordinary diesel engine performance and a more enjoyable driving experience.  At the same time, older diesel engine types can benefit from its detergent and combustion-enhancing properties, for more optimized performance.

Following its highly-successful launch at a few service stations in mid-2010, Petron Turbo Diesel is now more widely available in select Petron service stations nationwide.

Petron Corporation is the largest oil refining and marketing company in the Philippines. Its oil refinery produces a full range of petroleum products to supply nearly 40% of the country’s total fuel requirements. Through more than 1,500 service stations nationwide — the largest service station network in the country — Petron retails gasoline, diesel and kerosene to motorists.  Petron will continue to be at the forefront of product innovations aimed at giving the motoring public environment-friendly fuels that provide more value for money.
