Enforce law on foreign cars buying RON95 petrol instead of unsubsidised petrol stations – gov’t urged

Teams in Johor Baru are calling for the Malaysian authorities to step up enforcement of present legal guidelines for curbing the unauthorised sale of RON95 petrol, as a substitute of introducing new insurance policies, The Star has reported.

The introduction of recent programmes with unclear mechanisms could be “troublesome” and may confuse the general public, stated Johor Baru Chinese language Chamber of Commerce and Business president Low Kueck Shin.

“These in south Johor, particularly Johor Baru, are conscious that foreign-registered automobiles will not be allowed to pump RON95 petrol, which is subsidised by the federal government for Malaysians. International-registered automobiles together with these from Singapore can solely buy petrol akin to RON97,” Low stated.

“We discover it pointless to arrange an unsubsidised RON95 petrol station. It’s higher for the federal government companies to beef up enforcement to catch those that go towards the regulation by buying subsidised gas,” Low continued, including that the regulation for this has been put in place for a few years, and petrol station operators, kiosk attendants and even customers are alert and vigilant on the matter.

Based on Malaysia Tour Guides Council president Jimmy Leong, the federal government’s proposal to arrange unsubsidised petrol stations can have solely a minimal impact on tourism in Johor.

“Vacationers drive into Johor for leisurely actions and pumping petrol is just a small a part of their journey; they normally replenish their tanks earlier than heading again to Singapore at evening,” stated Leong. International-registered automobiles have gone viral on a number of events for refuelling with RON95, when by regulation foreign-registered automobiles are solely allowed to make use of RON97 petrol.

Unsubsidised fuels have been on sale in Malaysia from February this 12 months within the northern state of Perlis which borders Thailand, at two specialised stations in Padang Besar and Wang Kelian the place RON95 is bought at RM3.22 per litre and diesel is bought at RM3.45 per litre.

At current, subsidised gas costs see RON95 petrol bought in Malaysia at RM2.05 per litre and RM2.15 per litre for Euro 5 B10 and B20 grades of diesel, and RM2.35 per litre for Euro 5 B7.
