Embassy News 002: PROSBOC 1st Anniversary

On the 22nd of May 2209, PROSBOC proudly celebrates its first anniversary at Alamanda, Putrajaya. The reason this particular place is chosen as the celebration venue, is because it holds a dear and eventfull memory where all the 'Otai's of PROSBOC held thier first gathering and came up with idea of making
Proton Saga BLM Owner's Club (PROSBOC).

All of us were extremely happy and glad that all the 'Otai's made that historic meeting. If there wasn't a meeting, than we all would not be there, be friends, be one big united family. Member from all zone, from nearly all over Malaysia; including Sarawak were also there. There were more than a hundred members gathered at the Alamanda.

Our President, Mr. Yusnizam was gladly to book an entire floor of car park at Alamanda. There were dinner (paid by ourself of course but with discounts..hehehehe), a few short speech by our own president , Mr. Yusnizam. Followed by few of the 'Otai's. Few jokes were thrown in making an noisy but eventfull yet happy night. Next was intoducing the Head of each zone in all over Malaysia. This to make all memebers aware of the leaders of each zone.

We ended the night with a cake cutting ceremony and group pictures.

RON97, RON92, who is this RON person?

You might have seen numbers like RON97 and RON92 at your neighbourhood petrol station. Fuel with a RON97 rating is more expensive, RM1.92 per liter at time of writing with the lower RON92 rating going for RM1.88. Have you ever wondered what they mean? Why is RON97 more expensive than RON92, and can you use RON92 to save on fuel costs?

RON stands for Research Octane Number, a rating used to measure a fuels knocking resistance in spark-ignition internal combustion engines. Before we attempt to understand this mumbo jumbo, we have to know what knocking is. Knocking is what happens when parts or all of the air-fuel mixture prematurely ignites before the flame from the spark plug can reach it. This can be caused by ignition timing that is too early or engine overheating, where the heat from the cylinder itself causes the mixture to combust before the spark plug can burn the mixture. This causes a decrease in performance and might also harm the engine.

It is a misunderstanding to think that RON97 fuels produce more power than RON92 fuels, even more so with the fact that in reality a higher RON number means the fuel burns less easily! RON refers to the ability of the fuel to resist knocking and nothing else.

By pumping the RON97 into a car which engine only requires the RON92, all youre going to get is an emptier wallet – hardly counts for performance gains via weight reduction! :P

Engines are designed to have a minimum RON rating for its fuel. Do check your service manual for the minimum RON rating that it requires. For engines that require a minimum of RON92, you might as well pump RON92 fuel and save abit of money since RON92 is cheaper by 4 cents per liter. Another common minimum RON rating is RON95, but since we do not have RON95 fuel in our market, we have to use RON97 fuel for the engine. These engines normally have higher compression ratios, like the one found in the Satria GTI so it needs higher knock resistance to withstand higher compression.

If you find that your engine can use RON92 petrol and decide to save abit of money, do check out if a petrol stations RON92 petrol is leaded or unleaded. All RON97 petrol is unleaded, but some RON92 petrol might be leaded although this is very very rare. Buy me a teh tarik with the money you save, thanks! :)

Embassy News (001) ::Subang Autoshow::

This is the latest event occurred on the 9th May 2009. It was reported almost 40 PROSBOC members convoyed to the autoshow event. It was quite a grand convoy event. All members that went to the event, assembled at the Restoran Rafi ( Section 13, Shah Alam ). The convoy departed from the restaurant at 9.00 a.m. and arrived at Kampung Melayu Subang at 10.00 a.m. Few other members arrived the randevú few minutes later. Adding to the total amount the PROSBOC cars more than 40 units.

It was a verry hot day during the event, the sun was burning all of us from the blue sky. 1st degree of sunburn was an instant side effect. PROSBOC team sent 5 cars in the event. The proud owners that valiantly displayed their cars were, Putra, Acree, ArePeace, Ad and Bob. PROSBOC team were expecting a clean overall win for the Standard Open category, however the results did not turn out well. This because the judges that were invited to be the judge, may have misunderstood the rules of the event. Some of the cars that PROSBOC sent in were put in a different categories than the entered. A heavy feeling of depression were shared by all of the the PROSBOC-ians. Still, in the midst of all the desperation; one of the PROSBOC-ians came out triumph-fully. Acree, the owner of the newly fresh blue Subaru paint secured the SECOND place under the Open Standard category. Even that was enough to bring back the joy to all other depressed PROSBOC-ians. A loud roar of cheer escorted Acree to the stage. The prize giving ceremony was lead by Dato' Mukhriz bin Tun Mahathir.

Last convoy event for the PROSBOC was a dinner at MMZ in Bukit Jelutong. There, all of the members, marshall and crews of PROSBOC shared their experiences at the autoshow. Soon after the dinner, every member part their ways and went home for a nice cold bath.
