MORE THAN 20,000 litres of laundered fuel, along with a truck and a 40 foot container unit have been seized by Customs officials at Dublin Port today.
The fuel was on its way out of the country when it was intercepted as a result of ongoing surveillance.
Twenty containers, each containing more than 1,000 litres of laundered fuel were found, along with a 40-foot refrigerated unit which contained pumps and a fuel metering system.
Two men, one in his thirties from Northern Ireland and a second in his fifties from Co. Louth were questioned in relation to the seizure.
Revenue is warning of the risks of using laundered fuel in vehicles, as well as reminding the public that the practice hurts legitimate trade and funds criminal activity.
