My wife pumped gas at a Marathon station and the next day her car died. Nearly a week later the dealership that held the warranty stated it was bad gas. The Ethanol content was 65% and the gas content was 35%, they saved a sample of the gas. This Marathon station does not sell E85 so my wife couldn't have possibly pumped the wrong type of fuel and the service manager at the dealership said she could pump premium and it wouldn't cause an issue. I called weights and measures and never heard back, I called Marathon's corporate office 2 times and never heard back. We contacted the owner of the Marathon station and hew as less than cooperative. This is not a simple scenario of water in the gas tank, this is a scenario of wrong mixture and sadly it is 2 weeks out from when the gas was pumped so by now I am sure they have filled their tanks multiple times. The gas in her station could have only come from this pump as she pumped on 1/11, 1/19, and 1/25 from this exact station and the car died on 1/25 at home in our garage. We have the reciept and it states unleaded gas was pumped in the quantity of 10.### gallons so she topped herself off from like a quarter of a tank.
This is not a class action.
If you can prove that the gas caused the car to fail, you will have a good claim
