CLARK, NJ - A local gas station has been cited for alleged violations related to fuel dispensing during “Operation Summer Octane” conducted by the  New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.

In the weeks leading up to the heavily traveled Fourth of July holiday, the NJDCA tested the quality of fuels dispensed in approximately ten percent of the 3K state licensed stations.

While conducting fuel inspections, a variety of other violations of the Division’s Office of Weights and Measures and NJ motor fuel laws and regulations were found.

Clark’s Delta/Sadana Fuel, LLC at 104 Westfield Avenue was cited on three counts when it was discovered the gas pump meter continued to run after fuel dispensing stopped according to a press release from the NJDCA.    

The pumps have been fixed and the paperwork submitted for approval to the NJDCA according to an unidentified employee at the station.  “It’s fixed, we sent in papers and everything is working now,” he said.

The inspections were conducted throughout New Jersey.  “The good news is, our unannounced inspections found that 99 percent of the stations were pumping the proper grade of fuel.  The small minority that weren’t will be held accountable “said Paul R. Rodríguez, Acting Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs. ​​​

Accordign to the NJDCA, “Stations found to be in violation of OWM and NJ motor fuel laws and regulations face civil penalties from $100 to $1,500 per violation. Fines are assessed on a case by case basis in relation to the business history, and the severity of the infraction in relation to deceptive business practices.”
