Petrol stations in border towns to be barred from selling to foreigner
By SIM LEOI LEOI and MEERA VIJAYAN

KUALA LUMPUR: Petrol stations located in border states like Johor and Perlis will be barred from selling petrol and diesel to foreign-registered cars starting Friday.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad said the move, aimed at plugging loopholes in the current subsidy system, was decided during an anti-inflation committee meeting yesterday.

The ban will involve between 200 and 300 petrol stations in Kedah, Kelantan, Perlis, Perak and the Johor Baru and Kulai areas in Johor.

Currently, petrol stations are not allowed to sell more then 20 litres of petrol to foreign vehicles.

“This move is temporary until we come up with better management of our subsidy system,” he told reporters.

At present, Shahrir said too many foreign-registered cars, particularly those from neighbouring countries, had been crossing into Malaysia to take advantage of the lower fuel and diesel prices.

“I have been instructed to use my power under the Control of Supply Act to direct and ban the sale of subsidised fuel to these foreign cars. This applies to petrol stations located as far as 50km from the border,” he said.

Besides the northern states and the Johor Baru and Kulai areas of Johor, Shahrir said he was also studying if the ban should include petrol stations in Pontian.

He said the petrol stations would be notified by the ministry to adhere to the move.

Shahrir said that besides putting up signboards informing motorists of this new ruling, enforcement officers would also be stationed at the petrol stations to ensure businesses complied with the ruling.

“I will inform my officers about this latest decision and it will take effect by Friday or the latest Monday,” he said.

Shahrir said those caught flouting the ruling could be fined up to RM250,000.

However, he said foreign-registered vehicles which entered the country for tourism purposes could still fill up their tanks in places like Penang and Malacca where the ban would not apply.

“They should enter the country with full tanks and they have to plan their journey,” he said.

In Johor Baru, petrol station owners and managers were shocked with the announcement.

Petrol dealer Andy Wong said such a decision had huge implications on petrol station owners as a large number of stations situated near the Causeway depended heavily on their Singaporean clientele.

“If it is within 50km, then the whole of Johor Baru is affected,” he said when met at his station last night.

Other petrol station owners said they were awaiting more information.

One petrol station manager, whose station services hundreds of Singapore-registered vehicles daily, said: “So far, talks have only been about petrol subsidies. This has never been spoken about.”

He said petrol station owners had not been consulted about the matter

Just checked out another forum and I stumble upon the same thread but with POLLS to find out about the forumers opinion on this. The news stated CARS, so hopefully, bikes is not a matter in this issue.

Here's the link: http://www.msportbike.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=12975

Before that, please note that the majority of this forumers are from KL or southern part of Malaysia so don't feel insulted by their decisions and opinion. Thank you.

in other mainstream newspapers, they said foreign "vehicles". that will include bikes as well.

i dunno la...sometimes ppl with the authority, make ridiculous decisions. i just dont get it. as i said, simplified solutions.

just imagine what will happen to bikes with small tanks ie cubchais & bikes like my TL1000s. how far can they go?? cubchai boleh isi 3liter. nak spare petrol all the time to rush back to sg or go above 50km to just fill up?? by doing this, maybe the can try to deter (not 100% stop) petrol smuggling... but do they check on foreign expenditures here? shopping, etc?? what they say about losing money on subsidised petrol is true, but we gain it back on a few other aspects.

no offence
but this is what happen if all the ppl who control the economy & financial decisions of our country came with bachelor of arts background.

to my perspective, look like job opportunity especially to those jobless,
driver ambik mamat ni, bwk masuk stesen minyak, tunjuk MyKad, byr rega subsidi,
pastu dpt komisyen. turunkan kat pick-up point semula, tunggu keter lain lak. satu keter singgit,
kena 100 keter, lepas gaji sehari, xkena income tax lagi, gaji bersih. Smile Smile

tak pun buat side income hujung minggu, leh buat beli motor baru.
