  1. http://edition.cnn.com/2011/12/28/world/me....html?hpt=hp_c1 1/3 of seaborne oil passes through the Hormuz Strait. We have seen in the past that when it comes to crude oil, the world will go to war.
  2. Discussion / Debate... Have service standards at petrol stations declined? 1. Windshields are not cleaned. Attendants pretend not to ask, only clean when asked upon. 2. More interested in selling their OFFERS at the cashiers. 3. Never ask if fluids need to be filled up. 4. Tyre Air Pump broken down for days at same station 5. Etc, Etc.... All these despite their fat profits!!! But there are still service oriented stations, just very few...
  3. On a particular Friday morning, I switched on the car engine and realized that the fuel tank was about three-quarter empty. It could probably travel for about 120km before the top-up warning light goes on. On my way to work, I was contemplating whether to top up at the Caltex station along the way or do it the following Monday. As I drove pass the petrol station, I decided to fill up my car as the petrol station was not busy. And I was glad I did so. After the engine was switched off, I pulled the fuel door lever a couple of times but the release mechanism did not seem to work. This was the first time I encountered such a problem. The pump attendant was getting a bit impatient and I drove off eventually. I called up Volkswagen Centre Singapore and was advised to take the car down to the workshop. The car was sent to the workshop during lunch hour and fortunately, the problem was fixed by late afternoon. The outcome could have been worse if there is little petrol left in the tank and the workshop is far away. From this experience, I will always remind myself to top up petrol before the tank is near empty. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
  4. On my way back from the Johor P Outlet this afternoon, tried to pak-U at petronas and esson just before 2nd link.... no more petrol!!! Does this happen very often? (my first time in past 10 yrs of MY pak-U!!)
  5. Owners of CNG cars can switch to petrol The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has issued notices to all car dealers that vehicles running on compressed natural gas (CNG) can switch to a petrol-only option starting from this month. The Straits Times had reported in October that the authority was considering such a move. Among the problems cited by drivers of CNG vehicles was the scarcity of pump stations. There are roughly 2,700 owners of such cars in Singapore. A workshop worker handling CNG tanks. CNG car drivers face long queues at fuelling stations because of their scarcity. -- ST FILE PHOTO http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/S...ory_741353.html should i???

    Petrol switching

    Not sure if this has been ask before. Is it ok to switch between petrol brand constantly? Anything that I should take note of (eg pump the new brand only when the tank is near empty etc)? Still trying to see if there is any significant difference between the few brands available to us. Also is it advisable to stick to a certain grade of petrol constantly? Is it okay to mix pumping different grade without any problem as long it fell within the car drinkable range? The car manual only states that it can drink 91-98 RON and sales person recommended anything above 93 RON. With the mixture of results I am also trying out different grade. But well, I don't expect that I could actually feel any differences cos I am really new to driving but my curiosity beats me to that. Thanks in advance for any advice :)
  7. Moderate jam at Woodlands around 12.30am after a long day at Bkt Indah, notice the queue was not moving much, realise the customs are doing very thorough check on vehicles coming back, was following behind a Korean made black plate on the right hand side of the complex when the officer dugged out two 5litres plastic jelly cans. Suay gotta filter out from that lane cos he closed that lane and took the driver passport. Donno wat will be the consequences, fine? No picture cos custom buay sai hip xiong. Saw 4 to 5 Sg cars kanna hundred % check further up. Guess tonite will be another thorough nite for them.
  8. I just now pump RM24++ of petrol from Shell at JB 大马花园 and when I come back I check my banking statement I am charged RM200!!!!! Then I call the bank the person ask me to go back to the station and check with them. So I went in again and check but the pump attendant ask me check with bank again because the receipt amount is correct so is bank error. Then I ask to speak to the boss he says boss not around and as me go back next morning. So I come back to Singapore again and call the bank again. Then the customer service staff told me usually for petrol kiosk the amount charged is not the final amount. When the merchant make a claim then the final amount will be credited to them and the balance will be credited back to my account. Anyone encounter this issue before? So I need to go find the boss again the next day or wait for the amount to be finalize as told to me by the bank customer service staff??? Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  9. Was wondering what petrol and grade works best for Lancer EX 2L. Sorry I couldn't get in Esso in the poll due to poll limitation. Brothers and Sisters of other car models can participate in poll and share experiences too, just that am wondering what's best for my ride. Thanks!
  10. So have you ever run out of petrol in Singapore? When / where / why / how?

  14. Dear folks, I am trying to find a list of free papers that are distributed at petrol stations through the Internet but couldn't find any meaningful results. Hence, I would like to seek your help to list all the names (I.e. ------) that you have come across. I think they should have PDF copies circulating on their websites. TIA.
  15. Hi all, Just wondering which petrol / ron grade type do you guys use for your Honda Jazz. I will be collecting my vehicle 1.3A Jazz LX soon and am quite curious. So which ron number/grade do you use and how has it been for your vehicle's health? What do you recommend etc. Will be curious to see the different views in this especially for cars which have been more than 3 years in comparison. Thanks
  16. Been using Cowtax 98 for many donkey years already. Now I sibeh tulan them for raising prices all the time. Thus after some calculation, I found out that SPC is actually the cheapest of them all!! The 98 for SPC gives more discount and cheaper than stupid cowtax. Best of all there is one SPC just near my workplace. Can go there pump after work. Bye Bye Cowtax, I won't miss you unless you can be cheaper than SPC......
  17. By right all grades should break below $2.00 before discount. Oct. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Oil fell from a one-year low in New York, extending declines after the worst quarter since 2008. Crude for November slid as much as $1.20, or 1.5 percent, to $78 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange and was at $78.17 at 8:08 a.m. Sydney time. Futures declined 17 percent from the end of June, the biggest quarterly drop since the three months ended December 2008. Brent oil for November settlement fell 89 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $101.87 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe Exchange in London.
  18. anyone knows the several discounts rates for JB petrol for which credit card? Shell any discount?
  19. Read today papers and it left a bitter after taste in my mouth (not from my Kopi O Kosong). Its so easy to catch 16 agencies but the pump prices (now with masking of discounts, tie up with Credit cards, reward point perks) - with a simple Math calculation, are all the same. Sorry for the Saturday <RANTING>
  20. Was research for some petrol data and chance upon this report by the Competiton Commission of Singapore. Interesting read CCS report
  21. Sometimes my whole car is so bloody dirty, after diy using the sponge-cleaner to clean my windscreens, i use them to clean the doors, and other parts of the car body......but i make sure i dip the sponge long in the water to have as much water to sponge off the dirt... Not a 100% clean job cause normal car wash with wet cloth i at least wipe the surface 2-3 times, but with the sponge-cleaner i only do once or twice and without rinsing...... at least the car will look cleaner when i drive off... If you use the same petrol kiosk as me, please double check the sponge-clearner before using it to clean your windscreens

    Petrol refill habit

    Would like to know what's your petrol refill habit like? Some will refill if the tank is half, some like to refill whenever they see a kiosk, some will only refill it full tank when the needle touch the E and some even only refill when the lights up! Have your say................
  23. For the major part of last week due to stock markets not doing well, oil price has been falling. I think the difference is 9-10 USD from the point Cowtech raised its price of say Ron 95 to 2.08 per litre on 13 July til now. Despite the 9-10 USD drop, the price of petrol has still remained unchanged. Are there any watch dogs out there? :angry:
  24. I think only fleet owners or taxi drivers can win this contest. Ordinary drivers like u n me can wait long long.
  25. Very happy to see the toa payoh wheat baumkuchen is now sold at petrol station. Bought a packet to have my first try. Of this local brand. KNN nothing special...just like Kuay Lapis. Can't taste the healthier wheat properties. That small piece cost $2.50. Wow so expensive. Will not buy it anymore. Not worth it. Try it only because the office girls was raving about going to toa payoh each time to buy, and it taste supreme. One pregnant colleague even bragged her hubby everyweek buy one loaf for satisfying her pregnancy urge! I can get cheaper and more tasty Japanese baumkuchen ones at NTUC finest. Or might as well eat fresher bangawan kuey lapis, cheaper and nicer.
