gasoline pump

The National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro) makes available for public consultation, until June 26, 2015, a proposal for a regulation, unprecedented in Brazil, aimed at liquid fuel metering pumps. The requirement provides for a new generation of measuring instruments, which even includes the creation of exclusive software that will also allow the consumer to have power of surveillance at gas stations. Through the application store, it will be possible to download a program for mobile phones, also created by Inmetro technicians, which will provide the consumer with a reliable reading of the supply data. With this measure, he will be able to check, whenever filling, if the values ​​shown on the pump display are correct or fraudulent.
