The Investigation Team of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, carries out raids to nab offenders mixing kerosene with petrol.

The Investigation Team of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has sealed the fuel pumps and the underground petrol storage tank at the Gamsabha Junction Filling Station, in Nugegoda. The raid was carried out last night, upon a tip received that the Filling Station was selling petrol mixed with Kerosene oil. Petrol samples collected from the raided shed have been sent for laboratory test.

Meanwhile, the team also inspected a fuel bowser transporting furnace oil from Kolonnawa to Colombo Galadari Hotel. Upon testing the fuel samples it was determined that the furnace oil transported was of low quality. It is suspected that during transportation the furnace oil may have been mixed with a low grade oil, as the relevant bowser had not travelled on the assigned route.

Further investigations are being carried out by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation's Investigation Team.
