FAQ: Motor Fuel Quality Control

The Field Enforcement Division of the Comptroller of Maryland's Office is responsible for checking the quality of petroleum products sold in Maryland. Motor fuel inspectors cover every region of the state. They enforce provisions regulating containers and vehicles used to transport and store all motor fuels, signs advertising prices for gasoline and special fuels, and waterborne movements of motor fuels - interstate, intrastate and/or all points of the supply chain, from terminal or ship to bulk plant, to distributor, to retail service station.
