BAC GIANG – The octane index of gasoline sampled from Doi Nen gas station in the northern province of Bac Giang is much lower than required, according to the initial assessment results released late yesterday.
Other performance indices of the gasoline should be released soon, according to the Ministry of Science and Technology's Quality Assurance and Testing Centre 1.
The result confirmed the suspicions of hundreds of customers who protested in front of the gas station last Saturday, claiming they had been sold sub-standard gasoline.
Engines running on low octane fuels are subject to risks of damage. - VNS
