(Monitoring of fuel quality in September 2013)

(October 18, 2013) In September, continuous inspections of fuel quality continued on the whole territory of the Czech Republic. A total of 240 fuel samples were collected at selected filling stations – 8 inspected samples failed appropriate quality standards. “We detected negligence deviations in six samples. Significance of other two findings may point at intentional manipulation with the respective fuels or production defects,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA. “Besides repeated inspections at distributors at whom we had found sale of poor quality fuel, we also checked consumers’ suspicions of sale of poor quality fuels at various filling stations. A total of 447 motorists turned to the Czech Trade Inspection Authority within the previous 9 months and subsequent inspections proved violations of fuel quality or other shortcomings in 51 cases.”
