Filling station fuel pumps malfunction due to substandard petrol Featured

Fuel pumps at many filling stations have reportedly malfunctioned due to the substandard Octane 92 petrol distributed by the oil refinery at Sapugaskanda.

Reports say this began last January and that in the past few days alone, more than 30 pumps have malfunctioned at filling stations in the western province.

There are reports that as a result, a decision has been taken to issue petrol from the Muthurajawela oil storage.

Filling stations in the central province too, have been affected.
