Maine Gas Station Fuel Mishap Leads to Damaged Vehicles

January 19, 2018

Some drivers in Maine say their vehicles were damaged when they purchased fuel that was in the wrong pumps at a gas station.

The Kennebec Journal reports all of the drivers filled their tanks at a Mobil station in Waterville last week. Customers say pumps for diesel fuel and gasoline were mixed up. The owner of the gas station says he has received complaints from six customers.

Kevin Strickland says he has paid over $700 to fix vehicle parts that were damaged as a result of the mishap. Other customers had smaller repair problems.

The station owner says Mobil officials are investigating the error to determine what happened. The owner says he is collecting information so Mobil can compensate customers after the problem is figured out.
