Technical issues surface in several vehicles after pumping questionable petrol

Sri Lanka Petrol Problem

Several vehicle owners who had pumped petrol from a filling station in Menikhinna have reported technical problems with their vehicles.

Since this morning (December 10), 18 vehicles have experienced technical issues after pumping fuel from the filling station in the area while most of the owners allege that the petrol had been mixed with water.

The Menikhinna police have intervened and temporarily halted operations at the filling station in question.

The Manager of the filling station raised questions about the petrol that was dispensed by a Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) bowser last night (December 9).
