Fuels quality in April 2016

(Continuous report of April 2016)

(Prague, May 25, 2016) In April the Czech Trade Inspection Authority collected 224 fuel samples at filling stations. Four of them failed the quality requirements determined by applicable technical standards. Slight quality decrease was seen in comparison with March 2016, namely from 1.5% to 1.8%. So called negligence deviations were proven concerning two diesel samples, one diesel fuel blend sample and one FAME sample. Noncompliance with the applicable standard was detected concerning flash point in all the cases. Noncompliance with the determined limit for flash point signals contamination of fuels with an unfavourable admixture, e.g. automotive petrol in case of diesel. Prohibition of sale of fuels that failed requirements of special legal regulations was imposed in two cases in April, namely on 9,071.9 litres of fuels amounting to CZK 213,062.
