Ever since January 2016, thanks to a new government mandate, fuels sold in the Philippines must be Euro 4 compliant. All oil companies had to strictly follow this rule, all except Petron Corporation who decided they can do even better.
Because that’s what you naturally do when you’re the market leader, which is to set the bar high. Really high.
These guys beat everyone in meeting Euro 4 standard, re-launching their cleaner fuel line up months ahead of the gov’t requirement. Then, without anyone telling them to do so, Petron upgraded its Blaze 100 to Euro 5 late last year just because they want to give us even cleaner fuels. Unsatisfied with what they’ve achieved so far, they’re now going one step higher by giving us Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6.
Yes, it’s now the cleanest, most advanced, and only Euro 6 premium gasoline fuel in the country.
As compared to Euro 4 (50 ppm*), Euro 6 fuels has 80% less sulfur (10 ppm) and must not exceed the solid Particle Number (PN) limit. Tests show that Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6 is 3x cleaner than what Euro 6 requires.

“We are proud that Blaze 100 Euro 6 meets the world’s best environmental and fuel technology standards. With the highest octane rating but the lowest sulfur content, it is the best gasoline in the market by far in terms of power, efficiency, engine protection, and reduced emissions,” said Petron President and CEO Ramon S. Ang.
But what does that mean to regular drivers like you and me? Petron claims Blaze 100 Euro 6 delivers 1) improved fuel efficiency, 2) powerful engine performance and acceleration, 3) guaranteed cleaner engines in just 1 full tank, 4) improved combustion with its unique fuel and additive formulation, 5) significantly reduced harmful emissions, and 6) reduced maintenance costs with longer catalytic converter life.
(If you want to get technical, Petron sent us a very long document that details this that we can send to your inbox.)
“Since our fuels are locally-produced and formulated in our refinery, we can guarantee the quality and consistency of Petron fuels,” Ang added.
Blaze 100 Euro 6 is now available in nearly 300 Petron service stations nationwide and growing.
