A gas station located in the north of São Paulo was closed for the seventh time by the National Petroleum Agency (ANP), yesterday. This year alone, there were three interdictions for the sale of adulterated fuel and lack of license from the agency.
The inspectors went to the post again and were impressed by the level of adulteration. Gasoline contained 90% alcohol. The owner was not present at the time of the operation. At the time of the assessment, only one underage girl provided customer service.

On May 31 and June 25, ANP inspectors had already closed the post with tracks and tapes, which were soon torn off. To prevent this from happening again, the operation had the support of the city hall and the Farm Police. The post will be closed with concrete blocks to prevent vehicles from entering. The establishment, registered as Auto Posto Margeor, is located at Avenida Casa Verde, 100.


This year, the ANP has already carried out 3.258 inspection actions in the State of São Paulo. 1048 infractions and 219 interdictions were recorded.
