(Monitoring of fuel quality – June and first half of 2013)

(Prague, August 7, 2013) During the first half of the year, in total 1,198 fuel samples were collected, including 37that failed the requirements of quality standards, i.e. 3.1%. Most of the taken samples were diesel fuel samples (45.9%), followed by petrol (34.5%) and LPG (13%) samples. “Quality related defects were detected in 18 diesel samples, 15 petrol samples and 4 diesel fuel blend samples. Other collected fuel types were without defects. When compared to the same period of 2012, the rate of poor quality fuels reduced by 0.5% but the number of breaches connected with serious suspicions of illegal manipulation with fuels has remained high,” the Director General of the CTIA Vladimír Velčovský said. “In June, in total 211 fuel samples were collected, including 8 that failed the quality requirements, i.e. 3.8%. Collection of fuel samples continues in compliance with the Plan of Inspections.”
