BP Releases List of Sites Affected By Tainted Fuel

BP has released a searchable database containing a list of the gasoline retail sites that sold off-specification gasoline. BP says this gasoline has been associated with problems related to the alkylation unit at their refinery in Whiting.

BP officials say that once these locations were identified, each retail site was instructed to immediately stop selling the tainted fuel and to properly clean out their tanks and dispose of the material. They say the problem at the Whiting refinery has been fixed, and they are now only supplying terminals with gasoline that meet their “rigorous quality standards.”

Locations that were supplied with the bad fuel include the BP station in Knox at 802 S. Heaton St., ten stations in Valparaiso, a gas station located at 104 S. Main St. in Kouts, the BP station at 203 N. Main St. in Culver, and many others throughout the state.

Consumers who obtained fuel from the affected sites may or may not have filled up with off-specification fuel. While not all cars fueled with off-specification fuel will display adverse symptoms, some vehicles may experience hard starting, rough idling, stalling, or other drivability issues. BP encourages anyone affected by the off-specification fuel to have the 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.
