Fuel Quality Testing



As your Summit County Fiscal Officer, it is with great pride and success that I am able to implement our Fuel Quality Testing Program since 2005.

The purpose of this program is to make certain that consumers are getting what they are paying for. We are testing for octane levels and for water and sediment in storage tanks; we are also checking that spill rims are free of dirt and debris. Protecting consumers and assuring fairness in the marketplace are among our top priorities for testing the quality and quantity of fuel. To see how we test for fuel quality at all of our 178 stations three times a year, click HERE.

Disclaimer: The Fiscal Office inspects every gas pump within Summit County for octane levels, sediment, contamination and water. All testing results are published. In the event of a failure, the station has seven days to correct the problem before it is re-tested. Most infractions are corrected within 48 hours. The Fiscal Office will make every effort to update this information on a daily basis. The Summit County Fiscal Office Weights and Measures Department makes no expressed or implied warranty concerning the accuracy of this information because testing is continuous. Changes may be made at any time and without notice.

FUEL ALERT - In mid-April 2010 Channel 19 WOIO Action News tested 22 gas stations for 3 days in the greater Cleveland area. See for yourself why fuel testing is important for all Ohioans.
