Decree changes standards for gas supply

According to publication in the Official Gazette last Friday (3), the gas stations of Rio de Janeiro are prohibited from performing the supply by gas in cars that do not have the authorization seal, regulated by Inmetro (National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology). The posts must inform with poster about the new decree and non-compliance can result in a fine of up to R $ 1,000.

The number of cars that supply gas has been growing and it is estimated that it could become even higher, mainly due to the rising price of gasoline. But it is important to note that the installation of the CNG kit must follow the standards approved by Inmetro. Attitudes contrary to the new norm, in addition to acting contrary to the decree, also puts at risk the safety itself and third parties.
