LIST OF PETROLEUM FACILITIES FOUND WITH ADULTERATED OR EXPORT FUEL, APRIL - JUNE 2017

The Energy Regulatory Commission has published a list of petroleum retail outlets and petroleum tankers found with adulterated fuel or fuel meant for export between April and June 2017.

4,521 tests were conducted at 750 petroleum sites during the period under review. Only 12 sites showed non-compliance. This means that 98.4% of sites were compliant, implying that the compliance rate is very high.

Fuel adulteration is a menace to consumers because it ruins motor vehicle engines while causing air pollution. The sale of fuel meant for export violates tax laws because it denies the state much needed revenue required to support development programmes.
