There is no 'best credit card for petrol' in Singapore.

It all boils down to your monthly spending habits and which petrol station you frequent.
Different cards can get you different discounts based on their minimum card spending requirements.

Here are the best petrol savings cards and their respective discounts:

Citibank Cash Back card – 20.88% petrol discounts at Esso and Shell stations.

OCBC 365 –20.2% and 26.8% petrol discounts at Esso and Sinopec stations, respectively.

UOB One Card – 21.15% and 24% petrol discounts at Shell stations and SPC, respectively

POSB Everyday Card – 20.1% petrol discounts at SPC stations


No. Petrol stations in Singapore typically give out loyalty card discounts, which can shave 5%-10% off the pump price. You also need to factor in your credit card discounts (if any), which could effectively give you a total savings of up to 20%, depending on the card promotions.


Let's take the Citibank Cash Back Card used at Shell as an example, which offers 20.88% in savings:

  • 5% Shell site discount + 5% Shell Escape discount + 4% Citi card discount + 8% cashback (on nett purchase after discounts) = Total of 20.88% savings effectively*
Assuming the cost of petrol at the pump is $100,
  • On-site discounts:
    • 5% Shell site discount
    • 5% Shell Escape discount
    • 4% Citi card discount
  • Nett purchase price after on-site discounts (-14%): $86.00
  • 8% cashback (on nett purchase) = $6.88 savings applied on card
  • Total effective savings: $20.88

*The card offers a base cashback rate of 0.25% on all petrol transactions. An additional 7.75% cashback will be applied to your petrol transactions if you spend at least S$800 on your card per statement month. [Information correct as of 27 Aug 2021]


Octane ratings represent the fuel's ability to resist pre-ignition (also known as 'knocking'). Commonly referred to as the Research Octane Number (RON), the higher the octane number, the better it prevents knocking.

Most cars run on 95 octane petrol, but some cars need higher octane fuel (98) because it runs on a higher-compression gasoline engine which yields more power.

To find out which octane petrol you should use - check your car's user manual to find out the recommended octane petrol for your car.
