Our govt does protect with gst charges.

Anyway law is law. Whether get caught is another thing. So many things also law like wearing rear seat belts. Anything u do is your own risk

Then might as well ban buying anything from Malaysia since want to protect singapore retailers also ban buying online.

No ah , some diesel car cannot pump at JB , later engine will have problem , Malaysia diesel grade different

Want pump with empty tank in JB legally drive a diesel, else not worth the risk,time and worries. Kena 1 time not only fine+go office but “You-Turn back NOW!” and pay again toll.

the law is there for a reason, and that's to protect SG's petrol industry.

got car want to drive just pay the petrol money. ask yourself why u wanna drive in the first place (benefits) and ask yourself if it's worth the money (cost). compare the cost and benefits and if you think the cost does not outweigh the benefits, then sell your car.
any rich car owner aso do this wad. who dun wan save extra money?

The checks are random. Most of the time they don't check. Doesn't mean never check. Past year in 2017, total been checked 4 or 5 times. I'm a regular to JB every alternate week.

I did not encourage going against the law, i am just not agreeable to the govt protectionism policy when they always say protectionism is not good.

It’s not surprising our govt contradicts itself. But anyway whatever law there is, ppl will always break it. With less policing, even more so.

Not saying u. But wen ppl ask questions like 3/4 tank rule, to me it’s like asking obvious questions like need to wear rear seat belts.
