ESSO Synergy Fuel with Improved Formula & New Names

Starting from July 2015, ESSO has completed the face lift of its stations to enhance its customer experience and introduced the improved formula of its gasoline. The names and color codes of its petrol were also changed, and caused some confusion to the drivers. The red color petrol, which previously represented Synergy 5000 or Octane-95 equivalent, is now used to represent its Octane-98 petrol or also known as Synergy Supreme+.

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.

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!
