    • For your kind information fuel sold to end consumer does not constitute the income of Marketing company but the fuel sold to the retails outlets. As retail outlets are operated by dealers not company( but there are company owned sites too), it is up to dealer to maintain the quality and quantity of fuel. Although companies too have rigorous check and balance to maintain the same at retail outlets. But as you may know that PSO is a government entity, most of the outlets of PSO are owned by politicians, their relatives or other powerful elites. So its a bit difficult for PSO to ensure the standards. And yes PSO has more than 3400 outlets while the nearest number of outlets of the competitor is around 500 outlets of Shell. So you may imagine the difficulties to maintain such big network of outlets.

      • I beleive Companies with thier growing businesses ought to manage them supported by preperly expanding thier oraganisational structures for security, integrity and reputation safe gaurds. Increased outlets being the root cause of malpractice and fraud should NOT be accepatable.

        • Did you read my complete comment? I have stated another reason too. The politicians and elite factor!!
