CTIA: High content of water in diesel was an individual finding!

(Monitoring of fuels quality – February 2015)

(Prague, March 23, 2015) Monitoring and sampling of motor fuels continued in compliance with determined schedule in February. The plan was supplemented by investigation of consumers’ submissions. 3 of 236 collected samples failed quality requirements of technical standards. The most significant finding concerned water in one of diesel fuel samples – the water content exceeded the permitted amount of water almost 50 times. “This was the first time we detected such a case since 2001 when the Czech Trade Inspection Authority started monitoring fuels quality. Despite it was a technical defect and the particular vendor stopped selling the poor quality diesel, administrative proceedings will be launched,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
