KUALA LUMPUR – Petron’s Turbo Diesel Euro 5 recently proved its power in the high endurance 4×4 Jungle Adventure Expedition of the Rainforest Trophy Malaysia 2018.
From the organizers of the Rainforest Challenge (RFC), the Rainforest Trophy puts the participants’ teamwork, endurance, and off-roading skills to the test as they navigate through rainforests in the east coast of Malaysia under extreme conditions.
100 teams of 4×4 extreme sports enthusiasts tried to overcome obstacles like building bridges, crossing rivers, hills, swamps, mud pools, downhills and many more.
Launched in 2017, the second edition of the Rainforest Trophy concluded at Gua Musang, Kelantan after 7 grueling days. The endurance challenge kicked off in Kota Bharu on 14 July.
“The Rainforest Trophy definitely brought out the best among the participants as they unite for their love for the great outdoors. We are honored to be a part of this fun and challenging travel experience, and we applaud the teams for their amazing skills and hard work,” said Faridah Ali, Petron Head of Retail.
The group made a pit stop at Petron service stations along Tanah Merah before proceeding to Kuala Krai. The award for Best of the Best Team Spirit voted by the participants as well as media was given out at the ceremonial finish in Gua Musang on 20 July.
The off-roaders and adventure enthusiasts were also given the opportunity to give back to those in need at Pos Gob, the farthest Orang Asli Village in Kelantan from 18 to 20 July. Participants successfully installed a goal post for the field, painted the madrasah, and repaired the villagers’ multipurpose hall.
In the new season of the Rainforest Challenge 2018 in November, Petron Turbo Diesel Euro 5 will continue to fuel the major 4×4 event exclusively held in Malaysia. Dubbed as one of the top ten toughest motor races in the world, Rainforest Challenge 2018 is a rough race for the bravest men and their machines out in Malaysia’s thick rainforest. With the fuel’s TriAction Advantage, teams are set for a
great off-road adventure.

The TriAction Advantage in Turbo Diesel Euro 5 gives vehicles better power and better engine protection. It does not only provide excellent cleaning action but is also formulated to withstand extreme heat and high pressure. Turbo Diesel Euro 5 is now available at 132 Petron service
