5 poor quality fuel samples in January

(Monitoring of fuel quality in January 2014)

(Prague, March 7, 2014) In January, 219 motor fuel samples were collected in compliance with the plan for 2014. Five samples failed quality requirements of technical standards, namely one sample of automotive petrol, 3 diesel fuel samples, and one LPG sample. Most significant deviations were detected in an automotive petrol sample in which – among others – limit content of ethanol was three times higher than required, and in the LPG sample in which limit content of sulphur was twice as high as the standard stipulates. In January, samples of diesel fuel blend, FAME, and Ethanol E-85 were not inspected with regard to limited number of filling stations that offer these fuel types in the retail market.
