The Guyana Oil Company Limited, (GuyOil), has rubbished a report in the Guyana Times about the quality of its fuel and has rejected what it called “the reckless conjecture contained in the article, and wishes to reassure its customers and the general public that fuel sold by the Company is subjected to rigorous quality control tests and is certified to have met all required specifications.”
Guyoil said contrary to the claims made by the article, it has not received any reports from its customers or franchise holders which indicate that they have experienced any challenges in the operation of their vehicles as a result of fuel purchased from its Service Stations.
The company has indicated that it has instructed its lawyers to begin legal action against the editors and publisher of Guyana Times for the unsubstantiated accusation.
Last week, Guyoil announced a reduction in fuel prices. Some customers of Guyoil and other fuel stations have been complaining about the odor of the fuel at times, but that has not pointed to any other issue with their vehicles.
