Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera said yesterday that companies with multiple vehicles can now register all vehicles with the company registration number to get the national fuel pass. The minister said that the fuel requirements for the machines must be registered with the respective divisional secretariats along with the weekly fuel requirements.
It is mandatory for all three-wheelers to register with the nearest police station for fuel, as only registered three-wheelers will receive fuel from August 1 at the fuel station of their choice.
Accordingly, all three-wheeler owners are urged to register their three-wheeler with the nearest police station in their respective police division by July 31 to obtain fuel.
When registering at the police station, owners of three-wheelers must designate a gas station of their choice, where they prefer to get fuel.
From August 1, only registered three-wheelers will receive fuel from the designated filling station.
Meanwhile, more than 4 million users have so far registered on the National Fuel Pass platform to receive their QR code to get their weekly fuel quota.
In a Twitter post yesterday, Energy and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said the National Fuel Pass is showing great improvement. He said nearly 50% of gas stations follow the Fuel Pass QR system.
The minister noted that as of 8:30 p.m. Thursday (27), 4.25 million people had registered. A total of 481 gas stations had adopted the system comprising 409 CEYPETCO gas stations and 72 Lanka IOC gas stations. He also reported that 158,208 users had obtained fuel with the Fuel Pass QR code during the day (27).
