Letter From Imperial Oil:
Imperial has become aware that aviation gasoline picked up by wholesale customers at Strathcona refinery in Edmonton since Dec. 28, 2017 may have a product quality issue..
Please do not use or distribute this product. Our primary concern is that the product quality issue may cause interference with onboard fuel gauge sensors.
Imperial will make arrangements with you regarding future handling of this product, and we will provide more information as it becomes available.
We regret this inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.
