3/4 Tank Sign

The words look blurish because I tried to take it behind a drop of water on the windscreen! haha..

I guess you can only see this sign in Singapore.

Cars leaving Singapore and driving into Malaysia have to make sure they have at least fuel tank 3/4 full. Failure to do so will result in a fine! The sign tells the drivers to detour back to Singapore if you have less than the required 3/4 tank of fuel.

Huh? What's the reason for this? It is to curb people from buying cheaper petrol over at the Malaysia. Cheapest petrol cost SGD1.973/litre in Singapore and MYR1.92/litre in Malaysia, 1 SGD = 2.3 MYR. You know why.... :-)

Do your city have such rules? haha...

Yes, Uniquely Singapore. haha..

Actually, Malaysia side, also do not wish for Spore to pump subsidize petrol over there. I guess they like this rule.
