For self-ignition compression diesel engine. PETRONAS Diesel is a high cetane index fuel designed for use in low and high speed self-ignition compression engines to provide efficient, dependable and smooth operation. It has the proper viscosity suitable for critical fuel injection systems to provide maximum protection against wear and leakage. Also suitable for industrial purpose especially for direct burning i.e. boiler, furnace, dryer, etc.
