Singapore to adopt Euro 6 for diesel vehicles in 2018


Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) has said in a statement that the republic will adopt Euro 6 emission standards for diesel vehicles from 2018, according to a Straits Times report. Singapore currently adopts Euro 5 standards.

Euro 6 mandates lower nitrogen oxide (NOx), hydrocarbon (HC) and particulate matter (PM) emissions than Euro 5, although the carbon emission ceiling maintains status quo.

For now, BHPetrol’s recent introduction of Euro 5 diesel in Johor should help modern Malaysian diesel vehicles meet the 40 Hartridge Smoke Unit (previously 50) limit set by the NEA on July 1. At its launch in November, the fuel was priced at RM2.30 a litre – the move to a managed float system the following month saw its price rise to RM2.33 a litre.

Due to the low price of Euro 5 diesel in our country compared to neighbouring regions – including Singapore – we’re told only Malaysian-registered vehicles will be permitted to use the fuel.

    yea yea, only msian reg vehicle can fill in euro 5 diesel. sure or not? the same thing will happen as ron95 which is foreign vehicle can’t buy. everyday many sg vehicle fill in ron95. why? because all the pump attendant mostly is bangla, and the didnt give a damn about license plate. even the local pump attendant also didnt give a damn about it. petrol pump manager only care for profit, they also dont care. the law is there, but implementation and enforcement is tin kosong saja.

    • i dont see why we cant sell petrol price to thailand and singapore car user..

      our Ron95 is already UNSUBSIDIZED, low grade petrol selling above international oil price. Government is not loosing single sen here.

      the more they sell, the more they earn.

      so, foreigners should be welcomed to buy the petrol.

          Any Oil Singapore is purchasing, is well within international price range. Their government is earning a lot through high taxation on the use of own transportation – to control the traffic on the road in Singapore. (Also due to the higher rental rate and other factors at Singapore causing the high Singapore petrol price)
          Be clear that there is no effect on Malaysia. It only affect the Singapore road traffic, not Singapore government income. Their government cannot benefit much enough through petrol price from the limited vehicles in Singapore.
          Ultimately: Welcome all foreigners from Singapore to pump @ Malaysia:
          1. Malaysia Government earn more money, more cash transaction in Malaysia.
          2. Minimum effect on Singaporean Country.
          3. Our Petrol is unsubsidized, take as much as you can. The more you take, the more Malaysia Government earn.

      Is this your assumption? I stay in jb and my friends from sg can’t pump ron95 even with the floating price now. Some even wait out the jam across second link last few weeks because they were running low on fuel and the petrol station ran out of ron97.

    HHmmm….. Only Malaysian vehicle. I wonder if any of the truck will pump into “special” tank and then sell illegally in the republic? Previously this is how Thailand got CHEAP fuel from ours. Bila ini masalah can be abolish once and for all.

      My friend, all truck that go in singapore will be weighted automatically inside the sg custom. Smuggle into thailand maybe be easy, but singapore ? try it yourself and you will be landed in jail.

    Every body is worry about the flood, and lost of plane. Malaysia boleh, we make the impossible possible again.

    So what is big about this Euro 6 fuel, it is whether we want it or no. If top management don’t want, not even Euro 5 fuel you can get it here.

    Bolehland claims that the diesel sold it Euro 2, but in reality, it is way below Euro 2 grade.

    Those refineries in PD and Melaka has been producing engine killing fuel since the day they started operations
