While the aircraft was enroute from Kalgoorlie to Perth, the pilot noted that one engine began to run rough and had high cylinder head temperatures. The pilot decided to continue the flight to Perth and the aircraft landed without further incident. The subsequent investigation revealed that incorrect fuel had been added during refuelling at Kalgoorlie.
The agent reported that the company that supplied the fuel had since conducted an audit and had recommended a change to the procedures. The change required that when an order was made by telephone or radio, the person receiving the order was to read back the fuel type and quantity.
