24 fuel-filling stations were demolished, six closed and four re-opened after paying hefty fines  in an adulterated fuel crack-down conducted by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) since July.

Also, five trucks were impounded in the operation according to a statement released by ERC today.

During the period, 4,456 tests were conducted at 675 petroleum sites (including illegal petroleum sites). From the tests, 637 sites were compliant which represents a 94.4% compliance level. However, tests from 38 sites turned out to be non-compliant.
