HCM CITY — Oil companies selling sub-standard petrol in HCM City will be named in the media as part of measures to crack down on adulteration of fuel.
Le Hoang Quan, chairman of the city People's Committee, has ordered the Department of Science and Technology to step up monitoring of petrol quality.
Inspectors are set to collect petrol samples for testing from motorbikes that went up in flames and retailers, especially from petrol stations that face complaints or are suspected to sell adulterated fuel.
They will keep an eye out for vehicles going up in flames – a frequent occurrence around the country in recent times – and investigate them together with related agencies.
Any company found to be selling dubious fuel would be severely punished, Quan warned.-VNS
