The company's acknowledgement came one day after official tests confirmed that the gum content in some gasoline samples distributed by Petrolimex in HCM City exceeded the regulated amount.

According to Quality Assurance and Testing Center 3 (QUATEST 3), a number of A95 gasoline samples collected from the market were found to have gum contents ranging from 22mg to 166mg per 100ml of gasoline, up to 33 times higher than the maximum quantity allowed at 5mg per 100ml.

Petrolimex Sai Gon apologised to all of their customers and said it would take responsibility for the incident by handling compensations for any customers whose cars broke down due to the gasoline at fault.

Customers can contact with the company via the hotline 0902684488 or directly at the Petrolimex station where they bought the fuel./.
