Control the fuel gauge at your finger tip

This is an interesting news, a Singapore motorist has been fined 500 dollars and jailed 2 weeks for tampering the fuel gauge of his car while crossing the Woodlands Checkpoint.

He declared that his fuel tank was almost full at the custom.
(Under the law, Singapore registered cars must have at least three quarter tank when departing Singapore.)

However, a remote control switch was found hanging from the wiper lever of his car after a customs officer conducted a thorough check.

When questioned, he could not explain the purpose of the device.

The ICA officer proceeded to activate the remote control and saw the fuel indicator drop to "E", reflecting an empty fuel tank.

Is the savings worth the 500 dollars and 2 weeks jail?
