COLOMBO (News 1st): Sri Lankan authorities decided to conduct tests to determine if there was a change in the composition of the 95 Octane and 92 Octane Petrol.

‘These tests are being carried out based on the complaints made by the general public over fuel consumption concerns,” said K. D. R. Olga, the Secretary to the Ministry of Energy.

She said that 62 samples were obtained from several filling stations located across the country, and tests confirmed that the fuel met the required standards.

However, given the growing number of public complaints, further tests will be carried out on fresh samples.

She went on to note that information has come to light revealing that certain filling stations had mixed 92 Octane Petrol with 95 Octane Petrol, and an investigation is underway.

The Ministry of Energy requested the general public not to have any issue with regard to the quality of the fuel moved to the Kolonnawana Fuel Storage Complex.
