Late last year, motorists reported various problems with their vehicles after allegedly buying poor quality gasoline from retailers.

Energy Minister Dr Andrew Wheatley has indicated that the Interim Report on the so-called 'bad gas' is inconclusive.

The report was prepared by the Petroleum Trade Reform Committee and submitted to the Cabinet earlier this week.

Wheatley says notwithstanding the inconclusiveness of the interim report, he has issued a directive to have a full report completed and made available to him in the next four weeks. 

He says the presentation of the full report is critical to determining the next steps and ultimately bringing closure to the issue.

Late last year, motorists reported various problems with their vehicles after allegedly buying poor quality gasoline from retailers.

An initial report was expected at the end of January but the committee asked for more time.
