As of today, a new graded petrol (RON95) priced at RM1.80 per liter will be introduce. RON92 will be phase out and our usual consumed fuel is hiked up by 25sen to RM2.05 per liter. Read more Here..
A creation of a sub-graded fuel is been used as a justification to hike up our usual consumed fuel by almost 14% to RM2.05 per liter.
It doesn't takes a rocket scientist to figure out these RON gradings to know what we will be getting. And I am sure many of us have accidentally fill up our car with RON92 in the past. Imagine how our car would gives out knocking sound when engaging a slight slope. I really wonder how this RON95 grade would affect our car performance. Is the slight difference going to be noticeable immediately and over a longer run? What about fuel efficiency?
Whatever it is, I believe many of us would end up reverting back to RON97 in the near future. Especially those with higher end cars.
Again, our government is fleecing the people with this move. Somehow or another, the people are paying more than we should. Another sign of the desperate situation that our country is in... Our economy is deteriorating and our government has the slightest idea on how to raise funds. Only option is to rob from the people through this fuel hike masterstroke.
Lets just hope that this ill gotten funds would be put to good use instead of financing their sick political ambitions or finance their corrupt appetite.
