The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) is now giving out gas based on the last number on a car’s license plate.
So, from July 21 to July 25, fuel won’t be given out based on the QR system.
The QR code that comes with the National Fuel Pass system will not work until July 25.
The CPC said that fuel will be given out based on the last digit of the license plate:
Tuesday & Saturday : 0,1,2
Thursday & Sunday : 3, 4, 5
Monday, Wednesday, & Friday: 6,7,8,9
The CPC also said that fuel supplies for vehicles have been limited. The restrictions on fuel supply are:
Motorcycles: Rs. 1500
Three-wheelers: Rs. 2000
Other vehicles: Rs. 7000
The CPC hopes to start using QR codes next week. Until then, fuel will only be given out using the number plate system.
CPC says that there are 7.5 million working vehicles in Sri Lanka right now.
Out of these, 4.2 million are motorcycles, 1.1 million are three-wheelers, and 877,341 are cars.
As of yesterday, about 3 million people were registered for the National Fuel Pass and had received QR codes.
