On the morning of Sunday, 15 May 2016 a fleet of 4WD vehicles flagged off at Ulu Klang, Selangor formed a large convoy toward Raub, Pahang as part of the latest Dynamic Xperience expedition powered by PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel. A total of 30 4WD trucks flanked by 2 marshal vehicles joined the expedition, which saw the participation of internal staff including KSRP members, MyLandy car club members
as well as auto journalists and bloggers.
The event was organised as part of PDB’s Experience2Believe campaign, an avenue that lets users test, experience and review the performance of PETRONAS fuel products. At 8 am, participants gathered at Pegaga Restaurant for breakfast. A product briefing was given by Fuel Engineer, Mohamad Hafiz Abd Aziz who shared about the composition and benefits of PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel. The convoy set off about 9.30 am, shortly after a safety briefing.
Following a quick pit stop at PS Bentong RnR, the expedition continued to Rumah Sejahtera Perkampungan Ibadah in Raub. Participants distributed care packages containing food supplies courtesy of PDB’s East Coast Regional Office (ECRO). A few moments were also spent to talk and mingle with residents at the old folks’ home.
The convoy then made its way to Tanah Aina Fahad, a resort located next to the famous Lata Jarum in Ulu Dong. Here, participants had the opportunity to rest and enjoy their lunch amidst the natural beauty of Hutan Simpan Gunung Benom.
Head of Retail Business Division, Shaharuddin Muhammad Sidek graced the occasion as he managed to briefly meet with the convoy while in Bentong. The final leg of the journey involved an exciting off-road adventure in Chamang Forest. The convoy stopped for a group photo op against the backdrop of the scenic natural landscape.
Later the fleet of 4WD trucks returned to Ulu Klang for the conclusion of the Dynamic Xperience event. Participants gathered at Sakura Kristal restaurant for dinner and the closing ceremony. Azmir Hisham, Senior Manager in Retail Business Planning and Development was present to give away tokens to participants who correctly answered trivia at the end of the evening. The fleet of 4WD vehicles travelled an approximate total of 255 kilometers throughout the whole expedition. Organisers of the event received positive feedback from many of the participants, who expressed their satisfaction with the overall expedition and improved knowledge of PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel.

“I noticed that the tank barely moved even after making a round trip up and down to Pahang from Kuala Lumpur during our Dynamic Xperience expedition! And that is after blasting our air-conditioners as well. Definitely mileage friendly.”
“It was my first time joining such an expedition. The whole experience was exciting and the ride was smooth. I also saw that the fuel was quite efficient with the mileage recorded.”
“Saya dapati asap yang dilepaskan kurang walaupun saya menggunakan kenderaan Pajero lama. Terasa perbezaan dari segi kekuatan enjin terutamanya ketika mendaki bukit di Genting Sempah semasa ekspedisi ini. Saya juga amat tertarik dengan penjimatan minyak untuk perjalanan jarak jauh.
