RON97 up by 20 sen tomorrow to RM2.70 a litre?

RON97 up by 20 sen tomorrow to RM2.70 a litre?

Well, according to a report, the pump price for RON97 petrol is supposed to be hiked by 20 sen a litre to RM2.70/litre effective midnight.

This makes it the fourth increase in four months for RON97, which has its price determined by a market float, with the jump to RM2.30 on December 1 last year followed by another 10 sen increase to RM2.40 per litre on Jan 4 and another 10 sen to RM2.50 on January 31.

The report in The Malaysian Insider quotes a source saying that the confirmation notice was sent out this evening about the 20 sen rise. It is expected that the pricing of RON95 and diesel will remain unchanged.

My (Jeff Lim's) Opinion, 

NOT AGAIN, do you know that Perodua Alza,  Myvi and Viva's tuned for RON97?  My sister's MYVI 1.3 SXi Manual suffered 1) Power loss, 2) Fuel consumption increased by 20% from 13km/L average using RON97 to 10.2km/L average using RON95.  So this increase's NOT ONLY affects the RICH, please think of Alza, MYVI and Viva owners...  My dad's Civic FD2 also suffered from the Same symptoms.  RON97 = 20% more fuel efficient and more power, BUT NOW OUT OF REACH... IMHO, Diesel is the Way to Go.  

Now I'm saving and working towards Buying Ford FOCUS TDCI after test driven it TWICE (once Hatchback, once Sedan) and FELL in LOVE with the Endless Torque.
