Since the RON95 and RON97 petrol price are increased, the Malaysian Government have been considering to introduce the old and not so good RON92 as a cheaper option.
Government team are still researching on the RON92 to see whether it is usable and safe to consume. According to Finance Deputy Minister, Datuk Ahmad Maslan, if the petrol is usable, they will definitely implement the petrol type to all existing petrol stations.
Back then before the RON92 was exchanged with RON95, RON92 was commonly used for motorcycles and it was phased out in 2009 due to RON95 having a higher octane count. Basically, the higher the octane count, the more compression the fuel can withstand before detonating.
The question here is, will it be re-introduced again? We in FM did a little research and found out that most cars out there can accept RON95 and higher and ONLY CERTAIN cars can accept something which is lower.
