Dodgy Fuel

Doubt if a dealer would officially tell you it was the cause cos then the supplier could then challenge them and the next thing you know is the lawyers are rubbing their hands with glee. Only someone with loads of lolly could afford to challenge them. I wonder if some of the motoring organisations might take up the challenge on behalf of us poor motorists. In all honesty I believe it is a consumer problem and should be investigated by weights and measures or the Office of Fair Trading. If weights and measures can go into a licienced pub and test the proof of spirits, etc - why can't they do the same for fuel - after all I think there's probably more fuel used than alcoholic beverages. After all a filling station needs a Petroleum licience to operate - similar to a pub which needs a licience to sell alcohol.
