GAS STATIONS INCLUDE BP, THORNTON’S AND SPEEDWAY
BP has published a website with a database searchable by zip code that lists BP gas stations and non-BP gas stations that received off-specification gasoline associated with problems related to the alkylation unit at BP’s Whiting, Indiana refinery. 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 — producing gasoline that contained a “higher than normal level of polymeric residue.” BP’s Whiting refinery 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. Reports initially indicated that most of the motorists affected were in Northwest Indiana with a small number of motorist affect in Illinois near Northwest Indiana.
Not all cars fueled with off-specification fuel will display adverse symptoms, but if your car does experience hard starting, rough idling, stalling, or other drivability issues, please have your car towed to a repair shop to be checked out and call 1-800-333-3991 or 1-800-599-9040 to make a claim. Gasoline consumers are advised to save sales receipts, credit/card record and repair bills.
Recent reports indicate that BP gas stations and non-BP gas stations, including Speedway and Thornton received off-specification gasoline in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The list below includes a sampling from the database that includes gas stations affected in the northwest suburbs.
The following gas stations that received off-specification gasoline are BP station unless otherwise specified.
