The level of underfilling of gasoline at gas stations was announced by the Ministry of Industry and Trade
On average, underfilling gasoline at gas stations in Russia exceeds the norm by two to three times. These conclusions were reached at the Ministry of Industry and Trade based on the results of inspections. According to public control, two-thirds of gas stations in the country “sin” with such violations.
As the TASS, the department is hoping for a new bill on negotiable fines for underfilling, which was submitted to the Russian government for consideration. According to the authors, he will encourage gas stations to monitor their equipment and exclude illegal actions to reconfigure the equipment.
The amount of the fine will be 1% of the revenue of the gas station for the previous year, but not less than 500 thousand rubles. Repeated violation will increase the fine to 3%, at least two million rubles.
Earlier, Rosstandart said that in Russia underfill fuel at every fifth gas station. The department intends to tighten control for this violation and check not individual columns at the station, but the entire system as a whole. As for the new fines, they intend to introduce in 2021 year.
