A Donegal petrol station has been ordered to close for 24 hours in November after the owner’s conviction for selling marked mineral oil.
McD Fuels in Burnfoot has been told to stop trading for one day, on November 10th, next.
Owner Damian McDaid was also fined €3,500 after he appeared at Buncrana District Court.
Revenue officer Bernadette Murray told the hearing she stopped a woman driving a 4×4 at Ballyderowen, Burnfoot on April 7 last year.
The vehicle’s tank was dipped and it tested positive for marked mineral oil, namely a blue dye.
The woman said she had just filled her vehicle at McD Fuels, known locally as McDaid’s.
