Fuel quality was almost without defects in September

(Monitoring of fuel quality – September 2015)

(Prague, October 19, 2015) In September 2015, one of 238 fuels samples collected by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority failed determined quality requirements. It was a sample of the petrol “Super” with lower octane number than determined by the applicable technical standard and it failed the distillation test. These defects cause imperfect fuel burning and hence higher consumption. Violation of the upper acceptable limit of content of organic ingredients was not detected in monitored fuel samples. Despite rather positive results, inspections of motor fuels will continue.
