Warning against importing petrol
Thursday 7th March 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
ISLANDERS looking to import and sell super-unleaded petrol when garage sales are phased out could face a substantial fine, the Health and Safety Executive has warned.
The words of caution from chief health and safety officer Richard Brown follow the decision by Rubis, the owner of Fuel Supplies (CI) Ltd, to phase-out sale of the fuel, used for high-performance vehicles, from the end of March.
He said the HSE had heard ‘anecdotal evidence’ of islanders planning to import and sell super-unleaded, and he wanted to address the issue before it became a reality.
‘The HSE believes it is important to draw the attention of anyone who is considering importing super-unleaded or any other type of petroleum spirit that it is illegal and an offence under the 1924 law to import and store petroleum products without a licence to do so,’ he said.
