Features & Benefits
  • More like everyday vehicles: This year, Formula OneTM regulations limit engines to 1.6L turbocharged direct-injection V6 hybrid – this rule makes their cars more similar to everyday vehicles.
  • More fuel efficient: Formula OneTM fuel consumption is reduced by ~30% to a maximum race fuel allowance of 100kg with a fuel mass flow not exceeding 100kg/h. Efficiency is now a key success factor.
  • Liquid and Metal: The Power Units of MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM cars run on PETRONAS PRIMAX and PETRONAS SYNTIUM. These PETRONAS Fluid Technology SolutionsTM are the fuel and engine oil designed specifically for their engines.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How does PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula deliver superior fuel economy?
    PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula delivers superior fuel economy in three ways:
    • Firstly, it optimizes fuel delivery by cleaning and protecting critical injector and engine parts.
    • Secondly, it improves fuel combustion by creating a finer fuel spray through improvements in fuel atomisation.
    • Finally, it reduces friction by lubricating the cylinder wall and replenishing the engine oil surface active ingredients.


  • Is PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula different from other commercially available fuels in Malaysia?
    PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula is proven to deliver superior fuel economy in vehicle testing conducted using the combined New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) procedure with leading vehicle brands against commercially available fuels in Malaysia.

  • Is the PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 and PETRONAS PRIMAX 97 available at PETRONAS Stations similar to the PETRONAS PRIMAX used in Formula One™?
    Our PETRONAS PRIMAX for Formula OneTM, PETRONAS PRIMAX 95 with Advanced Energy Formula and PETRONAS PRIMAX 97, all contain similar components but at different compositions. The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) regulates Formula OneTM fuel to ensure “the use of fuels that are composed of compounds normally found in commercial fuels and to prohibit the use of specific power-boosting chemical compounds”. PETRONAS’ approach to designing fluid requirements allows us to tailor product offerings that are most relevant for all vehicles.
