There have been plenty of cases where Singaporean drivers and their Singapore-registered car have been caught filling their cars with RON95 petrol.
However, it appears as if Malaysians living in Singapore are also trying to do the very same thing.
In a video which was shared on the SG Road Vigilante – SGRV Facebook group, a man was caught red-handed while filling his Singapore-registered car with RON95 petrol in Johor Bahru but tried to defend his actions as he claimed to be a Malaysian.
The incident reportedly took place at a Shell petrol Kiosk in Johor Bahru, Malaysia on March 25.
In the video, the man was about done refuelling his white Honda Odyssey when he was confronted by someone for using RON95 petrol.
While he returned the yellow coloured fuel pump, back in its holder, he asked someone off-screen, “Cannot, uh?”
A female voice coming from behind the phone responded to the man and said “cannot”.
The man wound the fuel cap, closed the fuel door and said, “Even though I am Malaysian also cannot, uh?”
“No, doesn’t matter (if) you’re Malaysian or what but you are using (a) Singapore car.”
“If you said you are Malaysian, you should know, you cannot fill up the petrol using (a) Singapore car,” the woman added while the man waited for his receipt to be dispensed from the pump station.
He then tried to justify it by saying that he has done it at other places before.
“I filled up in Melaka, KL… they allow me,” said the man, claiming that he had successfully refuelled with RON95 petrol at other places in Malaysia without any objections.
The woman then replied “no, cannot” telling the man that he cannot refuel a Singapore-reigstered vehicle with RON95 petrol and the man walked away before the video ends.
It is unclear what had happened afterwards.
