We have in Russia, also in Ukraine and other post-USSR countries serious problem with motor fuel quality.
Partly it depends of using out-of-date, worn out processing equipment, and partly - greed of the wholesale suppliers doing by means of unsafe octane increase dopes content from Regular to more expensive Premium and Super.

We offer russian and foreign companies some devices for the control of fuel quality (www.shatox.com).

Are there in your countries similar problems and how do you solve them?

Quality of fuel is, or should be, regulated by the state or some type of government agency, where certain limits and requirements are set, and some instruments are established for making sure there is compliance by fuel manufacturers. Of course, there must be a tooth added to it (steep fines levied for anyone that puts out a non-conformed product). In the aftermath of huge consolidations throughout the world, today’s refineries supply huge markets, and could be considered global players. As such, one would not expect them shipping out substandard fuels. That leaves us to look closer to local distributors and gas pumps. Do they play dirty games by diluting fuel? Possible. That’s why state inspections, sampling and testing is, and should be, focused on gas stations.
