Serious violations of fuel quality remain

(Monitoring of fuel quality – August 2013)

(Prague, September 17, 2013) Inspections of fuel quality at filling stations continued in compliance with the schedule in August. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority collected 222 fuel samples in total, including 6 samples that failed the quality requirements of technical standards. “There is good news for motorists we didn’t detect many noncompliant samples. However, in four of six samples, namely two diesel fuel samples and two samples of petrol Super 95, deviations from quality were of such nature that if there was no production defect, there is a suspicion of illegal manipulation with the fuels,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority. “Administrative proceedings with inspected persons are held and after decisions on fines come into force, they will be available on our website.”
