HI! On an out of state trip, our gas tank was near empty when we filled it up. We made it home fine. The next day, the car shuttered, died, smoked, etc…my first thought - BAD GAS! Mechanic said = Diesel had been in the gas tank.
Called convenience store where we filled up - they admitted their fuel tanker delivery person accidentally mixed diesel into the gasoline tank.
Mechanic Bill = $600+ Convenience store (or tanker delivery company) sent us a check! (I couldn’t believe it - I thought FOR SURE they would deny deny deny any wrongdoing, etc…
HOWEVER, my car still doesn’t seem the same. It has a weird odor. COULD THERE BE ANY FURTHER damage, yet undetected due to this situation? Could the engine be damaged beyond repair, etc… THANKS! J-Cat in Kansas.
