Piss in the gas?

THERE is something fishy going on at gas stations across the country.

Motor vehicles owners are complaining that the fuel imported and received at the pumps is of a substandard quality.

Some claim that the fuel is linked to the high number of vehicles which have recently caught on fire.

On social media, many have said the fuel does not last as long as before, the smell can be described as fishy or like a urinal and for those who have sensitive skin once contact is made it burns their skin.

The Express visited several gas stations in South Trinidad on Friday, and met with customers who all agree that the foul smell in the fuel began approximately two months ago.

At the NP gas station in Vistabella, customer and maxi-taxi driver Danny Jaikaran said the diesel “stinks” and he noticed the odd smell just about one month ago.

“It smells nasty. It really, relay stinks. I think the diesel we getting is inferior. The smell is like something you would get from those urinals, that’s how bad it is. Those people in authority don’t have to do the work we do so they really don’t know. I used to make five trips when I filled up but now I making only three,” he said.

At the station, Shift supervisor Eric Harry said when attending to vehicles he has to step away from the pump because the smell makes him dizzy.

“People complaining that they are not getting the mileage as before and it really have a urinal smell. When I am filling up the gas tanks I have to move away because the smell is so bad that I feel dizzy and I could fall down, so I move away,” he said.

At the Rushworth Street NP station, a pump attendant, who wished not to be named said she now has to use gloves when refuelling gas tanks.

“This never happen before, I never had to use gloves. But the gas when it touches my skin it would burn and leave a dryish mark on my hands. I don’t know what it is about the gas now but I can say it never happened before,” she said.

Thought was just me! I really full up diesel last week at NP Wrightson road and the fuel was smelling rotten! I fill there 90% of the time. Only difference, was that I fill in the evening, as I am more of a morning person for filling up.

Something fishy with the fuel at service stations

THERE is something fishy going on at gas stations across the country.

Motor vehicles owners are complaining that the fuel imported and received at the pumps is of a substandard quality.

Some claim that the fuel is linked to the high number of vehicles which have recently caught on fire.

On social media, many have said the fuel does not last as long as before, the smell can be described as fishy or like a urinal and for those who have sensitive skin once contact is made it burns their skin.

Vehicle owner Winston Heeralal of Claxton Bay said he believed the Government is hiding the truth about the fuel. He said he too does not get the mileage for the amount of money he pays at the pumps and this was a major concern for him.

“The diesel is not lasting long. What we are getting is a poor gas and the Government is hiding it from the public. The gas stinks and it is sickening. I am not satisfied but I have no other choice, I have to use the gas to do my business,” he said.

Unipet says it has noted the complaints of its clients regarding the smell and the quality of the fuel.

Van runs better with more mileage. Diesel at Maraval station smells normal to me.

Switched to premium and got improved fuel economy on several vehicles. Our 2.0 non hybrid achieves 600kms with heavy traffic and ac on all the time and i dont consider myself a slow driver.

When I filled up with premium a couple times for some long runs I noticed this myself and my foot isn't light. I think I may end up saving more money in the long run by using the premium although it's more expensive. Car drives a bit differently on the premium as well.

do you have to drain the tank of any existing Super first before a Premium fill? Or they can mix?

I filled some premium in my truck. Mechanic says I need a new engine.
I thought you guys said the fuels can mix? I mixed it with diesel and it didnt work.
This is the last time I take advice from on tuner.

Holy crap dred...sorry to hear that yes. I duno about mixing diesel with anything else myself.

As for super/premium I know they can mix safely. I usually fill up with premium when I'm on empty or as close to. Never had any problems.

did you add premium to the diesel, or diesel to the premium?
You should always drain all the diesel out and half-fill with premium, and THEN add the diesel

Don't mix kerosene with the diesel. Kerosene is basically jet fuel, it will cause the vehicle to fly.

The mechanic lie.
Your diesel is non-interference engine, meaning that mechanics not supposed to interfere with it.

did your mechanic check the umbadiggy valve to ensure it was tumbling? and make sure that the tickatoker was ticktocking?? if he did not check those then I suggest you try another more knowledgable mechanic.
