Motor Fuels Program Moves from Department of Agriculture to TDLR

Senate Bill 2119 in the 86th Legislature transferred oversight of the Motor Fuels program from the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) to TDLR. TDLR and TDA have worked closely to make sure that the transfer of the Motor Fuels program goes as smoothly as possible for consumers and licensees.

TDLR has temporarily delegated licensing of motor fuel distributors, wholesalers, jobbers, suppliers, licensed service companies and licensed service technicians to TDA.

Meanwhile, TDLR will use its regulatory authority to protect Texas consumers and to perform motor fuels investigations into motor fuels quantity, pricing complaints and skimmers. TDLR will partner with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) on fuel quality investigations and prosecutions.


As of September 1, 2019:

To file a complaint about fuel quality, fuel quantity, fuel pump measurement, advertised price, device registration or skimmers, please visit the TDLR Complaints page.

To report an environmental emergency, discharge, spill, or air release, such as leaky hoses please call the State of Texas Spill-Reporting Hotline at 1-800-832-8224 – 24 hours a day.
