gr8ness97 Posted November 5, 2010 Share Posted November 5, 2010 Learn something everyday I suppose. Down here in West Florida, its been a steady downpour for two days straight. Today, it cleared up, and I had an appointment with a local tuner to tune my LGT. I decided to get some good Shell gas, as I planned to embark on yet another long trip once the tune was done (I travel extensively for my job). What happened next was not fun: The car cranked and didnt even make it out of the gas station without shutting down. After getting both the tuner and the dealership involved (I just had my 90K service done yesterday), it was concluded that bad gas was the problem. Of course, when talking to the service attendant (Some lady), they tried to put it on my not taking care of my car and whoever worked on it. (and subsequently, tried to claim I flooded the car....like she knew what she was talking about). The manager as well, said the same thing. After threatening him with calling an inspector out to test the gas (He claims the station had tested the gas in the last hour), both him and his maintenance guy check the regular and premium tanks for water. Guess what: water in the premium tank. And LOTS of it. The dealership got a sample of it, and a good deal of the sample was water. The station/corporate will be paying for the repairs, as they have claimed full responsibility already. The dealership thinks no major damage has been done, but I'm not super convinced yet. Is there anything I should be aware of when I pick up my car tomorrow? (hopefully, that is?) Cliffs: 1. Its been raining alot lately 2. Car isnt running well after bad gas. 3. Manager claims no water in gas 4. Manager eats crow, when he tests gas and realizes water significantly contaminates tank of premium gas. 5. Help?
