BAD BP GAS SOLD - Car/Engine troubles after you got gas at BP Gas Station? BP is recalling bad gas they sold in Chicago

BP gas customers who have experienced the problems with their vehicles during this period should contact BP’s customer hotline at (800) 333-3991

BP is recalling unleaded regular gasoline that was shipped from the company’s Whiting fuel storage terminal between Aug. 13 and 17 after motorists throughout the region began experiencing problems with hard starting or getting their cars to start at all.

According to a statement from BP, the company believes fuel stored in a tank at the storage depot could cause hard starting, stalling and other issues. The gas may have been bought by motorists patronizing BP and other retail outlets in Northwest Indiana during the past seven days.

The issue surfaced Monday as dealerships and service shops throughout the region were inundated with motorists having difficulty starting their vehicles.

Tony James, owner of Northwest Indiana Auto Supply in Merrillville, said calls from dealerships and customers began rolling in Monday morning about cars having trouble starting or not starting at all. The business is an AC/Delco and Motorcraft distributor that, along with its retail parts business, supplies parts to a large number of local dealerships.

Barry must be a little worried. There has been talk about him tapping some of the oil reserves to bring prices down.

For those that don't know, the BP Terminal in Whiting fills up EVERY MAJOR BRAND in the Metro Chicago Area.

Each brand then adds their (secret formulas/additives, i.e. Shell, Marathon, Speedway, Luke Oil, Thornton, Clark, etc.)

No BP in Ford Heights. There is a Citgo on RT30.

When was the gas sold, and at what BP stations was it sold at? I drive all over NW Indiana on my RDO and occasionally use BP.

When was the gas sold...

Thursday night into Friday. by 11 AM Friday, the Lynwood and Dyer BP's were closed and the lines were a mile long at the Speedway stations over in Dyer. Some stations stopped taking debit cards for some reason and made the whole mess worse. I trucked back through beautiful Ford Heights yet refused to pay IL prices for gas and motored all the way to Chesterton before heading to Michigan for the weekend.
