“The entire system has to be flushed out. The pumps the lines the injectors. You are talking about thousands of dollars worth of things this could potentially damage,” Billy Allen, with Allen Tire, said.
The questionable fuel has stopped the pumps from flowing at the BP Gas Station and Corner Mart on Midlothian Turnpike near Winterfield Road.
A woman who didn’t want to be identified said she came to the gas station last Thursday and filled up her tank. Friday morning her Volvo wouldn’t start. She had the car towed to the dealership where mechanics found the watered-down gasoline.
