Fuel Scarcity Fraud. An Observation. by Raymie(m): 9:22pm On Mar 18, 2016
With the biting fuel scarcity of which there seems no end in sight, a lot of us either for impatience or unavailability of products at official rates have resorted to buying at the black' markets whether they have filling stations or sell in jerrycans.

A recent observation by an acquaintance of mine about the jerrycan sellers was that he personally observed these sellers putting spoonfuls of fine charcoal like substances into their gallons prior to filling them, the implication he said makes the fuel more buoyant.

His concern wasn't about the fraud as its rampant in times like this. It was the implication such substance may have on fuel lines, injection systems and what not on our vehicles and other petrol using machinery. In a situation where most of us are dealing with bad fuel already with its attendant demerits, having these 'unknown' substances into ones engine may cause certain degrees of damage. So until such substance, what it does and its implications are known publicly, I advise that except when absolutely necessary, we shy away from people dispensing in the gallons. Lets not exorcise one demon by introducing another. Cheers.
