"Got gas, left the gas station, pulled up, car died, and as I'm pushing other cars broke at same time,” Ron Goetz said. He said his car had to be towed from Bethpage Grocery in December 2018 after water-tainted gas ruined his engine.
Goetz wasn’t alone. At least seven other drivers had the same problem. The owner picked up the repair bills, shelling out nearly $12,000.
Channel 9 wanted to know how many stations in our area were cited for selling contaminated gas. The Department of Agriculture provided a list showing dozens of problems in 2018.
