Attention all Drivers!

 

Attention all drivers using VP Fuel, we just received a call from New York State, and we wanted to inform you that they may come to Speedway to check on your fuel. You can NOT be using any VP Fuel containing MTBE.
 

Here is the excerpt from NYS:
Section 192-g. Methyl tertiary butyl ether; prohibited. * (Effective January 1, 2004)
 

1. For the purposes of this section, "gasoline" shall mean any fuel sold for use in motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines, and commonly or commercially known or sold as gasoline.
 

2. No person shall import into, or sell, dispense or offer for sale any gasoline which contains methyl tertiary butyl ether.
 

3. Any person who violates the provisions of this section shall be liable for a civil penalty of not less than five hundred dollars nor more than ten thousand dollars.

We were advised that VP stopped selling this last year but if anyone purchased/purchases Fuel in Canada or another state they could still be selling it.  Ransomville does NOT want to see anyone get fined so we are advising you of this as soon as we were made aware. Any questions please call the speedway at 716-791-3602 or message us personally thru the webpage.
