Suspicion of intentional manipulation in 3 fuel samples

(Monitoring of fuel quality in March 2014)

(Prague, April 17, 2014) Workers of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority continued in monitoring of quality of fuels offered at filling stations. 5 of the total of 242 motor fuel samples taken in the market and handed over to laboratory assessment failed the requirements of technical standards. So called operational deviations resulting from negligence were detected in two petrol samples. Excessive limit of sulphur content detected within two LPG samples and oxidation instability of a petrol sample were significant deviations that could have originated due to either production defect or intentional manipulation with the fuel. Administrative proceedings will be launched with all inspected subjects.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
