After testing the limitations of subsidised fuel, the government through the Downstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Agency (BPH Migas) have stated that there are cars that are prohibited from using Pertalite fuel and subsidised diesel. This restriction has been carried out in order to reduce the burden of the subsidy budget draining the government’s overall budget. In addition, this decision assists in the distribution of fuel subsidies so that they can be more strictly regulated in their usage. Previously, PT Pertamina (Persero) had set registrations regarding the purchase of pertalite fuel and subsidised diesel through MyPertamina, but currently prospective buyers only need to show the QR Code obtained after registering their vehicle through the MyPertamina application.

The Corporate Secretary of PT Pertamina Patra Niaga, Irto Ginting, said that currently subsidised fuel is still being consumed by both the middle and upper classes.

“Almost 60% of the rich enjoy almost 80% of the total consumption of subsidised fuel. Meanwhile, the poor and the vulnerable at the bottom 40 percent only enjoy about 20 percent of the total consumption of subsidised fuel," said Irto as quoted from the page.

Currently, Pertamina is expanding Mypertamina trials in several areas, including Bekasi and DKI Jakarta. Since the trial, the MyPertamina application has covered 50 cities or districts in 27 provinces.

List of Cars Prohibited from Buying Subsidised Fuel

Pertamina has determined that only four-wheeled vehicles with engine capacities below 2,000 cc are allowed to use pertalite and subsidised diesel. The reason is the car with an engine capacity of over 2,000 cc including luxury cars. It is expected that cars with engine capacities above 2,000 cc use Pertamax fuel which has a higher octane.

The following is a list of cars that are prohibited from using pertalite, along with the price of the car.

How to Register for Subsidised Gas

Currently, Pertamina is still opening registrations for users of subsidised gas, although Pertamina has not been able to confirm the implementation of this BBM purchase restriction. However, people with cars who are entitled to use subsidised fuel are expected to register immediately, either through the registration booth at Pertamina gas stations which will be assisted by officers directly, through the subsidy website, or the MyPertamina application.

Consumers are not required to use the MyPertamina application so consumers need to show a QR Code that has been previously  printed or stored on a smartphone.

"If you get a QR Code, the QR Code will be attached to the vehicle. So if you don't want to use your cellphone, the QR Code will be simply laminated on the windshield of the car or motorcycle, so there's no need to use one’s cell phone at the gas stations," said Pertamina President Director Nicke Widyawati as quoted from the page.

In order to register, consumers are simply required to upload a number of documents to get a QR Code. Documents will differ depending on the type of vehicle that is to be registered. For private cars, the documents required are as follows.

  • ID card photo

  • Selfie

  • Photo of STNK Front and back (opened)

  • KIR's photo

  • All vehicle photos are visible

  • Photo of vehicle registration number

Meanwhile, for commercial goods or passenger vehicles, consumers need to attach a photo of KIR and a letter of recommendation.

The following steps are required for new users to register via the website:

  • Prepare the following documents, namely: KTP, STNK, Vehicle Photos, and other supporting documents

  • Go to the website

  • Check that you understand the requirements

  • Click register now

  • Follow the instructions on the website

  • Wait for the data matching process for a maximum of 14 working days regarding the registered email address, or check the registration status on the website periodically

  • If it has been confirmed, download the QR code and save it for transactions at Pertamina gas stations

Functions of the MyPertamina Application

The PT Pertamina app is not only used for purchasing subsidised fuel, but in collaboration with LinkAja, also offers a variety of conveniences. So, what are some of the other functions of this application?

  1. Paying for cashless subsidised oil. Consumers only need to connect their MyPertamina account with the LinkAja application to make such transactions.

  2. Consumers can order various Pertamina products, one of which is Bright Gas which can be delivered to the customer's address, even though this feature is still in its trial phase. Consumers can also get various attractive promos through the application or website.

  3. Consumers can find out more information about purchasing Bright Gas, such as the location of the nearest Kiosk Matic.

  4. Every time you make a transaction, you will receive collectable points. These points can later be exchanged for merchandise in the form of Emko Brik Pertamina gas stations.

  5. By using the Charging Station feature offered through the MyPertamina application, you can find out more information regarding the location of the nearest SPKLU or Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station.
