BP’s Whiting refinery has recalled a 50,000-barrel batch of gasoline (2.1 million gallons) after hundreds of reports of hard-starting and stalling vehicles from motorists in Northwest Indiana repair shops.
BP issued a statement Tuesday, August 21, 2012 reporting that regular grade gasoline was blended at its Whiting storage terminal between August 13, 2012 and August 17, 2012. The gasoline contained a “higher than normal level of polymeric residue.”
Costs have ranged from $300 to $1,200 to drain fuel tanks and clean fuel systems.
Gas stations have also shut down while underground tanks are emptied and refilled with clean gasoline.
Motorists with bad gas are can call BP’s customer hot line at 800-333-3991. Customers have reported difficulty getting through to a representative, but BP reports they have put extra staff on the phones. Affected fuel claims may also be submitted at email@example.com.
