Summary as introduced:
Motor fuels and lubricating oils. Requires all motor fuel retailers to register annually with the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services or his designated representative. After July 1, 2000, no person may sell or offer to sell motor fuel unless a registration certificate has been issued. The bill prohibits a retailer of motor fuel from defining, describing, or promoting a motor fuel as “premium”, “super”, “high test” or any other similar words denoting high octane performance unless referring to motor fuel with an octane rating of 93 or above. The bill also requires that all motor fuel retail outlets have at least one person located in line of sight of the pumps or fuel dispensers at any time that fuel is being sold to the general public. Such person shall be properly trained in the safe operation of the pumps or dispensers and must be familiar with appropriate emergency procedures. Finally, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services will promulgate regulations to implement the provisions of this bill within 280 days of enactment.
