The owner of the Singapore-registered Kia Sorrento, who mysteriously managed to deliver fuel to a fuel station in Bukit Indah without paying, has returned for the Johor Bahru fuel bill.
SG Road Vigilant posted an update of the case at 6:56 pm yesterday. According to the post, station workers previously received RM70.60 for unpaid diesel bills.
But the amount given raises another question – if you divide RM70.60 by the current price of B7 diesel by RM2.35 per liter, you get 30 liters of fuel.
It actually exceeds the diesel quota allowed for purchase by Singapore-registered vehicles at fuel stations within 25 kilometers of the Malaysia-Singapore border gate.
We covered this rule in a story earlier this month. The reason for the ruling is the same as why Singapore-registered vehicles cannot buy RON95 petrol – it is only a subsidized item for Malaysia-registered vehicles.
There are no restrictions on how much diesel a Singapore-registered vehicle can buy more than 25 kilometers from the border, arguing that it has to use fuel to get north, but if you check Google Maps, Bukit Indah station is 25 km away so the 20 liter rule is that Applicable to stations.
