Fuel Quality

The Texas Legislature enacted Senate Bill 2119, which was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott on June 15. This law transfers regulation of the motor fuel metering and fuel quality program from the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). As a result, TDA is unable to respond to any complaints about fuel pumps or fuel quality in Texas.

Unfortunately, this includes complaints regarding fuel pricing, problems with the pump, or fuel quality, including octane problems, sediment or water in the fuel. This new law also repealed all fuel quality testing and fuel sampling.

At this time, TDA and TDLR are working together to ensure an orderly transfer of the motor fuel metering and fuel quality program. TDLR will begin receiving and acting on complaints as soon as the program is transferred.

Ensuring that Texas consumers are protected is of the utmost concern for both agencies and we will continue to post updates and information as it becomes available.
