Arrow Who Said No Such Thing As Bad Gas

The stations were investigated this summer as part of a project dubbed Operation May Day to Labor Day.

Stations Fined for Selling Bad Gas

Fifty Michigan gas stations have been busted for violating state standards.

This summer across the state, inspectors examined 953 service stations -- some in metro Detroit as part of a project dubbed Operation May Day to Labor Day.

State inspectors cracked down on bad gas and broken pumps. In all, they found that 29% of gasoline tested failed quality standards, and about 12% fell short of gas quantity standards, meaning that stations may not have sold a full gallon of gas for the listed price of a gallon.

The majority of violations, according to the Dept. of Agriculture, were not intentional, but had to do with poorly-maintained pumps and equipment.

The state boosted inspections by 30% this year, in response to about 500 consumer complaints. The 50 gas stations busted were fined, and many others were issued warnings as part the crackdown.
Luv the smell of NITRO in the morning.
