I travel in-out daily, noticed the check had decreased tremendously, but don't try your luck! I had friend really kena fine!! Not worth at all.....
Unless your car runs both petrol & gas, then is worth to travel to JB to pump when gas empty & petrol at 3/4 tank.

I think the fine is 400 bucks for first time and it's random. I've seen Mercedes as well as a 15 year old Mazda got caught before. Some jokers are even more funnier. They left their tank so empty and when faced with an unexpected jam, their car stall. Getting caught this way was a no brainer. Any way, you actually have the answers to your own question, just be prepared to pay the fine when you get caught. 2nd timer may need to go to court. FYI. :)

Why do they check? Are you not allowed to pump at JB?
Is it like the bus fill up Diesel when it arrives in France rather than filling up in UK? Cheaper?

Adam,
are you Singaporean? We have a rule here that you need 3/4 tank of fuel in your car before you cross the causeway/border to Malaysia. It is so that the government here does not lose out on the taxes on fuel here.

who dun want to save $? buy lenses from overseas is legit, modifying oil tank indicator to evade taxes is illegal...:sweat:

u seem to forget the phrase, u need to be lucky everytime but the customs officer just need to be lucky once...is the savings worth the risk of being fined, criminal record etc? u decide.

my 2 cts worth. :)
