OH, Lucas County inspectors to test fuel meters

(Toledo News Now) -

According to Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez, in cooperation with the Lucas County Auditor's Weights and Measures Department, the state of Ohio will be at the Lucas County Recreation Center and Toledo Express Airport to test vehicle tank meters Wednesday and Thursday.

The inspections involve nine companies that dispense fuel from bulk fuel trucks. The large fuel trucks being tested are essentially mobile gas stations. The fuel sold from these trucks goes to homes heated by fuel oil, diesel fuel for large construction companies, as well as fuel for tankers that supply aircraft at the Toledo Express Airport.

The Weights and Measures Department helps protect county residents and businesses by ensuring that all commercial weighing and measuring devices are accurate. Fuel meter tests are just one of the many services this department provides for the county.

For more information about the state of Ohio's tests, visit www.state.oh.us/agr or call the Lucas County Weights and Measures Department at 419-213-4358.
