Water in gas tanks at South Tampa store damages cars

Water in gas tanks at South Tampa store damages cars


RIGHT NOW, ON NEWS CHANNEL 8 AT 5:30. IT TOOK A LOT OF BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, SO TO SPEAK.>ANOTHER FRUSTRATED DRIVER AFTER PUMPING BAD GASOLINE INTO HIS VEHICLE, GOOD EVENING EVERYONE, I’M JOSH BENSON. WE HAVE AN UPDATE TO A CONSUMER ALERT, ANOTHER VIEWER CONTACTED US AFTER OUR STORY ABOUT BAD GASOLINE AT A SOUTH TAMPA CIRCLE K, IT IS LOCATED ON SOUTH WESTSHORE BOULEVARD, THAT IS WHERE ROD CARTER JOINS US NOW. Reporter: GOOD EVENING, GEORGE STOPPED HERE AT 3:00 SUNDAY MORNING TO TOP OF HIS TANK AND HIS CAR IMMEDIATELY STOPPED WORKING, IT HAS BEEN SITTING HERE EVER SINCE. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I MEAN, THIS HAS BEEN BAD. HE NEVER ONCE THOUGHT, A SHORT TRIP TO THE GAS STATION WOULD END UP WITH A LONG-TERM PROBLEM WITH HIS CAR AND PET PROJECT. IT TOOK A LOT OF BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, I’VE HAD THAT VEHICLE FOR 7 YEARS, THE VALUE IS NOT GOING TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR WHAT I VALUE THE VEHICLE TO BE. HE IS TALKING VALUE BECAUSE WHEN HE PUMPED GAS INTO THE TAKE, HE APPARENTLY GOT WATER, TOO. AND HE IS NOT ALONE, A LOT OF PEOPLE NOW HAVE ENGINE TROUBLES BECAUSE OF WATER IN THE TANK. YESTERDAY, THEY SENT AN APPRAISER OUT IMMEDIATELY TO APPRAISE MY VEHICLE, SO THAT JUST TELLS ME THAT THEY ARE LOOKING TO TOW THE VEHICLE, SO THEY ARE PROBABLY LOOKING TO PAYOFF THE VEHICLE AND IT COMES DOWN TO DOLLARS AND CENTS TO THEM. VALERIE HAD THE VERY SAME ISSUE. I LEFT, I GOT ABOUT A HALF A MILE UP WESTSHORE AND MY CAR COMPLETELY DIED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. TODAY, COMPANY OFFICIALS GOT HER A RENTAL CAR AND THEY DID THE SAME THING FOR GEORGE ON THIS WHITE TRUCK WHEN IT COMES TO FIXING HIS 300 Z, HOW FAST WILL IT GET DONE? OBVIOUSLY, I’M A LITTLE BIT APPREHENSIVE AS TO WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO AND WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO OFFER. THE OBVIOUS QUESTION IS, HOW DID THE WATER GET IN THE GAS TAKEN THE FIRST PLACE? GEORGE TOLD ME, HE TALKED TO AN ENVIRONMENTAL GUY THAT WAS TESTING THE GAS, HE TOLD THEM THERE WAS DEFINITELY WATER IN HERE. THIS IS WHERE THEY FILL UP ALL OF THESE TANKS AND AGAIN, IT IS ALL OF GAS EXCEPT FOR PREMIUM GAS, THIS IS WHERE THEY FILL UP THE GATES GAS, THIS IS FROM ALL
