Can anyone help me to calculate if it is worth to pump in Jb. Some ppl say worth, some say not worth. 

Staying at Pasir ris - about 26km into JB via woodlands
Usually I can pump 35Litre, go in at half tank and pump to brim. 

The cost of pumping in JB: 
- 35 x 2.76Rm = 97RM
- Msia Toll - 20rm + 3Rm 
- SG Toll - SGD 1 
Total convert to SGD is about $42 for 35 litres of Ron 97. 

In Singapore, SPC Ron 95 $2.29 x 35 litres = $80 - 15% = $68. 

So still have a saving of $26. Am I correct?

You haven't included the cashback/rebates from credit cards discounts. Also, that 26km would cost u abt 2L of petrol just to get to JB and also another 2L for u to get back home. Other than that, it seems abt right..

Roughly there. Not too sure about toll but you also need to calculate

-mileage to jb and back which is about 50 km (both directions cos one way is 26 km) so wear and tear and fuel spent to be considered

- timing. Do you wake up early or sleep late just to do the petrol run? If it's "along the way" when you do shopping it's fine.

Tuas is more expensive but might be faster when you consider the jams at woodlands causeway. So is it worth the few hours of your time?

So money saved is more or less definite but there are other considerations.

And it's best you don't calculate based on half tank. What if you got caught? My friend got caught and fined when his fuel meter was one bar below three quarters....... it's a risk...

Worth it if you do it when you go there eat and shopping or tour.

Not just for for the sake of pumping petrol.

1st offence $100

2nd offence $200

3rd offence $300

 

"The driver must turn back to Singapore to fill the fuel supply tank to three-quarter tank full before he is allowed to leave Singapore with the motor vehicle." 

 

so worth it?  [laugh]

 

And please lor, dont just copy and paste from else where lah, at the minimum, take a little effort to retype the content lah.

why half tank?

Fuel tank show red light then enter JB, the bestest.

 

Stay sengkang, to/from, within 60-90 mins can reached home. leave house around 1-2am.

 

 

For 01 year of jiu hu petrol + 1 packet of jiu hu cigarette each time.

 

Until I got caught and fine S$100. worth it.

For that less than $20 saved but 2 hr or more spent, more wear and tear on the car plus risks traveling across the border.

Think about it... Worth it?
Stay home and catch up sleep better la.. or go gym for a workout. Healthy also 👍

Discount should be 20% if you use UOB at SPC (Pay $48 for $60 gross pumped). Alternatively, not too difficult to offset the $22 difference by taking on 4 GrabHitch bookings.

Please.... It is an open secret that people go in on almost empty tank to pump. You go on an empty tank you save a lot more than 20 dollars. Then you multiply the times you saved about 30 bucks on petrol. The probability of getting caught for not having enough petrol is low. So even if you get caught and have to pay 100 bucks, you already made it back from the many times you were not caught.
