When Kizer went to sell some of his Coal holdings a and a portion of the tax credits As Well a tax officials said they had not received the documents that would have qualified the company for the credit.

Austin Caperton was paid $10,000 a month and a $35,000 Bonus upon the final approval. The tax division gave final approval in november 1989. Tax and Revenue Secretary Charles Lorensen said he never talked with Austin Caperton about the super tax credit. Fahrenz said Kizer was under the impression that Caperton had discussed the matter with Lorensen the application was not approved or signed by Lorensen.

A i Haven to heard any motorists a we get Calls from time to time but there a really nothing we can do a said Stephen Casto director of the weights and measures division of the state department of labor. A we just done to have the the division ensures that service stations pumps compute the Correct Price and amount per gallon. Casto said that West Virginia is among several states that done to have motor fuel Quality Laws. A Federal regulations require that pumps be labelled with octane ratings but to my knowledge no state Agency double checks them he said. According to the study motorists who think they Are buying Premium grades May be losing $150 million a year. Samples taken last year in Detroit and St. Louis were found to have octane ratings an average of 2.2 or More Points below what was posted on the pump. An octane rating determines the ability of the gasoline to resist burning. Some higher powered vehicles recommend various Levels of octane to avoid unhealthy a a pings or knocking sounds in engines. A state lawmaker who believes West Virginia motorists Are being deceived has twice unsuccessfully introduced legislation that would regulate the posting of octane ratings. Del. James Pitrolo jr., a Taylor owns an automobile Dealership in Mannington and says he gets a lot of complaints from motorists about engine knocking. He believes the deception of gasoline Quality originates with the distributors rather than individual service stations. A i done to think the stations deliberately sell gasoline below the standards a Pitrolo said. A we suspect that there May be times when the Gaso line delivered to the stations is already below the posted octane Pitrolo said when his customers complain about engine knocking he recommends they switch brands or octane Levels. Regular unleaded Gas is rated at 87, mid Grade unleaded at 89 and Premium grades from 91 to 94. Of four local service stations contacted Friday Only one knew whether its gasoline is checked for Quality before it goes to the pumps. Go marts gasoline is tested by the manufacturer after its purchased from the Oil supplier said Jim Heater transportation manager for go marts Charleston office a i Haven to had any complaints about my Gas a said George Daniel owner of Georges Pennzoil in Fairdale. Daniel said he does no to know if his gasoline Quality is monitored before it goes to the pumps. A a it a just whatever the distributor brings a he said. Heater said that most Oil suppliers do Check their fuel Quality before distribution or gather samples at the pump. A some of it depends on the company and what their procedures Are but most companies Are very Picky about the Quality of their fuel a he said. But Heater said that motorists who blame engine knocking on Low octane Levels May need to look for the source of the problem elsewhere. In Pic if your car engine is properly tuned it will run Okay on regular unleaded gasoline a he said. A a it a performance wont improve with High octane Gas if its not tuned Heater recommends that motorists concerned about engine performance should read their automobile manufacturers manual for suggested octane Levels. A most people that buy a new car wont even read the manual a he said.
