Do you check the quality of the fuel, too?
Yes, we check the quality of fuel at every station in the county. Each tank is tested for the presence of water. Samples of fuel are sent to the Division of Measurement Standards Petroleum Lab for octane and quality analysis. Petroleum and automotive products must meet SAE and ASTM Standards. Those jurisdictions that have a portable spectrometer can determine the octane content at the time of initial inspection.
