KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4 — UMW Toyota Motor said today the RON 95 petrol is suitable for use in all Toyota and Lexus vehicles sold by the company.

The exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia said owners of these cars, who are currently using RON 97 petrol, can switch to RON 95 without encountering engine damage or performance loss.

UMW Toyota was responding to questions on the suitability of the new petrol for all vehicles following the government’s decision to replace RON 92 petrol with RON 95 from Sept 1, 2009. — Bernama
