Speaking in Malay, the man filming the scene accused the petrol employee of providing excellent service to the Singapore-registered car because of the tip.

He further alleged that workers would simply ignore Malaysian cars.

“He’s already cleaned the car front to back. Sometimes when the drivers fill up the car with RON95 they will ignore it because they get tips,” the man added.

“Because of money, everything can. If it’s a Malaysian car, no matter how long we wait they will just pretend not to notice us.”

He also said that Singaporean cars would usually be allowed to pump RON95 if they tipped RM20 or RM30.

Netizens comment they see no issue with accepting tips

Another netizen said in Malay: “There’s nothing wrong with it; it’s not their job to clean anyone’s car. They don’t only target Singaporean cars; they also wash Malaysian cars, but only if you drive a BMW or Vellfire. If you drive an Axia, please wash your own car.”

One netizen shared it’s okay to accept tips if people offer. Also, it was not captured in the video that the employee helped the driver fill their car with RON95.
