It said the checking must done in front the first customer in the morning and proceed the sale only after the customer’s satisfaction, with their signature or mobile number on customers register or board.
The association warned that if the procedure was not followed, the petrol pumps would not be held responsible for finding water in the vehicle tanks.

It has, therefore, advised the car owners and motorists to exercise extra care so water did not come in contact with petrol, which could happen during routine war wash or during rain.

The association informed that it would make vehicles difficult to start or give jerks while driving.
