82 cents a litre

Postby bgd » Thu, 29 May 2014 4:43 pm

That's what I paid in Malaysia for 95 RON a couple of weekends back.

I normally make a day of it but these last few weeks my weekends have been pretty tied up. So I just do a petrol run at the moment. Bike gets a run, I have a bite to eat and back home by 9am on a Sat morning.

Doesn't work with a car. You have the 3/4 tank rule and can only purchase the less subsidised 97 RON. Also most cars aren't as frugal as the bike.

I'd do it more as well but it's just a hassle and I live on the wrong end of the island.

I'll have to refine my timings.

At 7:30 it's slow getting out of Sg but even worse getting back in, big queues, particularly bikes. Decided to explore some of the empty roads. Came back across at 10:30 and queues were gone.

Staying at woodlands I have to deal with traffic everyday going home... just along bke. the jam will usually start around 6 after the KJE exit... all the way till 11ish 12 nowadays. At that time the car queue would just be around the woodlands ave 3 exit on the bke, and just pass woodlands town garden if you're coming in from that side. I do go in to pump petrol for my bike on some weekdays around 11, car queue is quite long and it takes like half an hour or more to clear the Singapore customs alone. After clearing the SG customs it's smooth sailing all the way!
