Bad gas in Yorktown causes car calamities
A bad batch of gasoline that was delivered to a Yorktown gas station was discovered quickly, but not after damaging at least a few cars along the way.
Westchester County Department of Weights and Measures personnel inspected the purity of the gas being sold at the Shell station on Route 202 in Yorktown on Monday and found that a 15,000-gallon tank at the station was contaminated, probably with water.
One woman tells News 12 that she'll have to pay for at least $700 in repairs after filling up on Monday.
Officials were able to drain the station's tank of the contaminated fuel, and have since refilled it.
The Westchester County Office of Consumer Protection says it is now safe to buy gas at this gas station as they work to figure out how the gas supply was contaminated.
Officials say that the gas station is expected to pay for any damages caused by the gas. If you think you may have purchased some of the bad gas, you should contact the department at 914-995-2155
