In my game, 5/43, my opponent is down to just Palembang -90% capacity- and Miri (or the big one next to it) about 60% capacity. Sorebaja is down to 50% but he never runs a convoy down to that city in fear of the B25s clobbering him.

Is there some trick the japanese players use to move the oil to Singapore than somehow move it by land to china where it can be transported to the home islands so as not to run my Sub guantlet?

Thank you.

Where is your sub gauntlet? My guess is it's not as impervious as you seem to think. Spotted subs (DL >0) are ineffective at intercept and can be skirted. A few float planes at Singapore and Palembang should reveal the entirety of your submarine force interdicting these two ports. Some ASW thrown into the mix (or convoy escort) will further impugn your efficacy.

He doesn't have to run TFs to Soerbaja per se to get fuel or oil. The rail system on Java works very nicely. The fuel or oil can be drawn to Batavia and picked up from there.
