The representatives of Khammam Petroleum Dealers Association on Thursday submitted a representation to Joint Collector T Vinay Krishna Reddy in this regard and explained him about the problems they were facing due to mixing of ethanol with petrol.
Speaking on the occasion, Gopal Rao said with the orders issued by the Central government, the oil companies of government sector were mixing about 10 per cent of ethanol with petrol and were supplying the same to the dealers, who in turn were selling the fuel to customers.
