LPG with excessive sulphur content

(Results of fuel quality monitoring in August 2014)

(Prague, September 17, 2014) LPG samples were without deviations from required quality in July, however in August the Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected that three samples of the fuel type collected in North Moravia failed the required quality. Two samples again contained excessive amount of sulphur and one could contain undesirable admixtures as indicated by lower octane number. This was 1.5% of the total number of 213 inspected samples of motor fuels collected at filling stations on the whole territory of the Czech Republic. Despite the good results of other fuel types, inspections carried out by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority continue through further collection of samples and inspections of motor fuels based on consumers’ submissions.
