[SIC] Caltex Fuel Your School 2018

Once again, Caltex is back with its signature community outreach program, Caltex Fuel Your School, to raise funds during World Environment Day. Your next full tank could potentially contribute to saving the planet. Caltex Fuel Your School aims to promote learning in the domain of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics amongst primary and secondary students in Singapore.

So how does it work?

From 4 to 30 June 2018, Caltex will contribute S$3 for every 150 LinkPoints redeemed for fuel at Caltex stations islandwide. Science Centre Singapore, in collaboration with Caltex,  is conducting a hands-on workshop (Tech Jam) to convert e-waste into quirky app-controlled robots for students, and up to S$60,000 has been pledged to support this activity.

Hence, your support is greatly appreciated to realize this e-waste learning journey for our future generations.

Not a driver? No worries, you can still contribute to this social activity too!

You can make a difference by lending a hand to Science Centre Singapore (SCS) in its e-waste collection drive. From 4-15 June 2018, SCS is looking for material such as electronic toys with motors and lights, mobile phones and electronic table clocks to help our future innovators. In the event that the items are not used during Tech Jam, SCS will dispose them off responsibly.

Fuel Saving Facts & Fictions (Compiled by Shell)

Shell FuelsaveI have been repeatedly hearing the advertisement by Shell on fuel saving lately on the radio, so I am pretty curious to find out what it is all about and whether I am doing the right things.

As the pump prices have been constantly rebounding by the all-time low in 2014 since the economic crisis in 2008, drivers do need to monitor their driving patterns and habits and try to maximise every dollar spent on petrol.

These were the top 5 habits commonly practised by the 1000 drivers polled by Shell between Dec 2014 to Jan 2015. Quite surprised with some of the habits that are practised by fellow drivers. Time to kick off those so-called tips that do not help you and save some $$. There are definitely more funny habits that somehow we still practise even though it does not help at all to save fuel. Trends of petrol prices moving north is nearing again.

  •  Driving slowly all the time (92%)

Colin: Cruising at higher speed definitely consumes lesser petrol than driving slowly. Plus, you get to your destination faster! However, do abide by the speed limit and drive safely.

Petrol@SG Launched!

I have launched a new page to keep drivers in Singapore updated on the fuel/petrol prices. As there is currently no web services available to grab the prices from the respective companies, this is a manual process! Still, I believe that changes should be spread to all drivers to allow them to make informed decision on when to top up their fuels. In order for this project to be successful, I will need to garner to help of all drivers to keep me posted other than I myself updating based on the companies’ websites or every other day when I topped up my petrol. I will keep this page simple first by just publishing the petrol prices. If the progress is good, I will introduce more information such as credit card promotions, limited products on sale (e.g. LOGO cards @ Shell) and etc.

You might connect to my twitter as I will post it whenever I update the page. Also, through twitter, you can also update me the petrol prices too!
