We have gathered all samples of RON95 petrol from each brand to see the physical differences especially the colour. We also done a burning test on each petrol to see how long does it take for the petrol to be burned until finish. Here we attach the video of burning each petrol samples and the time is recorded below the video. Thanks to KDI readers Wan10 for giving us the ideas to collect all the petrol samples.
DIFFERENCES OF RON 95 PETROL PROPERTIES FROM BHP PETRONAS SHELL CALTEX ESSO MOBIL
From the physical properties, the colour of each brand have some differences and an obvious difference is from the Esso and Mobil brand which is from the same company producing a yellowish colour of RON 95 petrol.
While Petronas has the greenest colour of its RON95. BHP have clear with slightly green colour while the most clear or transparent petrol is from Caltex.
Below are the burning test of each petrol brand. The method is by using standard bottle cap of 100 plus, we fill up the cap with specified petrol until overfill and put it on a metal area for burning process then light it up with lighter just after it is put there.
Then we monitor the result. Note that this burning process is done in an uncontrol environment and just for our fun test not for any review etc.
ESSO RON95 26.04 SEC
CALTEX RON95 25.36 SEC
SHELL RON95 31.59 SEC

I am not going to make any conclusion about the differences due to that I am not an expertise in Petrol industries. But for those out there who knows may share your thoughts here.
