Sri Lanka introduced the Fuel Pass QR code system in full force from today (1st August). We looked at some frequently asked questions on how it works?
1 – My vehicle cannot be registered
If you are getting an error while trying with the chassis number use the Revenue license number instead. This ideally should work
2 – I have a 20-litre limit, can I pump more ?
No, we are sorry you can’t, the limit is there for a reason. 😀
3 – How can I use the QR Code ?
Simple, show the QR Code in your phone or keep a small print out and proceed to the fuel pump
4 – If I pump only 15 litres what happens to the balance ?
You can utilize the remaining 5 litres within the week; but make sure when you are pumping the pump assistant enters the correct figure (Mostly they enter the total amount unless you insist)
5 – When will my Quota refresh ?
All Fuel quotas will be refreshed every Monday.
6 – Which day should I Pump ?
You can pump any day convenient to you and watch out for petrol/diesel arrival dates and times from your respective petrol stations.
7- Should I consider my number plate to stay in the queue ?
Nope – with effect from the 1st of August only the QR code is applicable
8 – Can I pay extra and get a full tank ?
Mmmm No 😆 Don’t do it.
