Petrol stations to be inspected for overcharging

Officers check petrol pump accuracy
23 march 2018
Officials at the Industry Ministry said yesterday that the governing body started checking the accuracy of measurements at petrol stations in an attempt to halt customers from being overcharged for petrol.

According to Ministry Spokesman Um Sotha, officials from the National Metrology Centre are calling petrol station owners for a meeting. Under this new development, the Industry Ministry would have the authority to inspect stations nationwide and test the gauges used to measure fuel.

“Officials from the National Metrology Centre will check petroleum stations’ measurement equipment to ensure the equipment is technically in order and carries out accurate measurement,” he said.

“The people authorised to determine whether or not the equipment is accurate are National Metrology Centre officials,”

The move came after complaints of cheating by petroleum stations which do not sell accurate amounts of fuel, Mr Sotha said. He added that so far, the ministry had issued statements concerning petrol stations.

Not long ago the engineers where doing measurements on the fuel at the local Total site.
Always "hope" but never "expect".
