$45,000 in Fines Paid by C.L. Bryant

This page finalized August 9, 2006.


In early April 2006, several local brokers complained that their competitor, C. L. Bryant, was illegally selling jet fuel to local farmers for use in motor vehicles at a price much lower than CARB diesel, and thereby stealing their customers. A quick and intensive investigation was launched; Enforcement Division field staff quickly verified that between March 29 and April 14, 2004, C. L. Bryant had been selling kerosene (a product also sold as diesel #1 and jet fuel) to several local farmers after holding a meeting with them in which he assured them that the fuel was legal for use in motor vehicles. The fuel does not meet CARB aromatic standards. This case has been settled for $45,000.
