Motor Fuels Section
As of March 23rd the Motor Fuels Laboratory staff will be onsite as necessary to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Clients will still be able to drop off samples during business hours but only after first arranging to do so. Please contact the lab by phone at 919-733-3246 and leave a message on the answering machine that includes the following information:
- Your name
- Phone number where you can be reached
- The date and time you would like to drop the sample off
Messages will be checked several times a day during the business hours listed below, and someone from the lab will contact you to coordinate the drop off. By taking these measures, we hope to minimize any potential disruption in laboratory services while also promoting the health and safety of our clients and staff.
Normal Business Hours: Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
The Motor Fuels section is responsible for enforcing motor fuel (gasoline and diesel fuel) quality standards, heating fuel (kerosene and fuel oil) quality standards, and motor oil quality standards. Tests are performed on site and at the Motor Fuels Laboratory in Raleigh.
