This page last reviewed September 10, 2012

In March 2012, Chevron paid $400,000 in penalties for the sale, offer for sale, supply, or offer for supply of gasoline in violation of California reformulated gasoline regulations.  During the latter part of 2007, for a period of 124 days, Chevron’s Sacramento terminal distributed 1,120,196 gallons of gasoline without deposit control additive.  Chevron discovered the error when a review of the additive storage tank revealed a surplus inventory.  Additional investigation indicated that an erroneous value  was entered into the management software for the required quantity of additive to be distributed.  This was a self-disclosed violation.
