The list of eleven petrol stations selling adulterated fuel in Kenya has been disclosed.
The country’s Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) said the stations which have breached the fuel law are spread across the country.
According to the authority, some sell diluted Kerosene while others sell Diesel or Petrol containing high sulphur content, which harms the effectiveness of emission control systems.
Some also sell Super Petrol, and Diesel meant for export.
The stations include Zeemax energy station, which is located in Marsabit, Mishemishe filling station in Meru, Shukran Filling station in Transzoia, Be Energy Racecourse Service Station in Nairobi, Nyakawili Filling Station in Homabay, OLA Energy Kapenguria, Philip Waweru Mwangi Filling Station in Nakuru, Gen Eighteen Forty Filling in Migori, Catasteph Filling Station in Lamu, Sifa Petroleum Filling Station in Meru and Test Report- Tezo Filling Station in Kilifi.
The new development comes following a crackdown conducted by EPRA between April and June 2021.
Nine have been shut down out of eleven stations, whereas two have been fined more than $7000.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
