The BP gas stations at 320 S. Route 45 and 1275 N. Route 83 have been identified as having received tainted gas. Another station at 491 S. Route 83, which also sells BP gas, was included.
BP released a searchable database that lists all of the stations that "did receive off-specification gasoline associated with problems related to the alkylation unit at BP’s Whiting, Indiana refinery," BP officials said on their site.
"Once identified, each location was instructed to immediately stop selling the off-spec fuel and to properly clean out their tanks and dispose of the material," officials continued. "Consumers who obtained fuel from the listed sites may or may not have filled up with off- specification fuel."
BP officials advised that if a customer's car starts experiencing "hard starting, rough idling, stalling or other drivability issues," the customer should have the car towed to a repair shop to be checked out. The customer should also call 1-800-333-3991 or 1-800-599-9040 to make a claim.
