Getty stations should have been ok. Only Lukoil and Wawa stations got the supply of contaminated gas. You might have some other problem.

Anyone else have problems after filling up with gas on Monday 5/12 or Tuesday 5/13 at Sunoco gas station in Cranford, NJ just off of the Garden State Parkway exit 137? My car would not start after I filled up at this station. They told me they had water in their gas. I'm trying to find someone else out there that it happened to.

I bought gas on May 13 and still haven't gotten mt car back. Sunoco is "taking care" of this sistuation (so I've been told).

I think this is a good cause for lawsuits. Can this ruin people's car?

I just found out I got contaminated gas sometime in May. I went to the shell Station right before the entrance to the Parkway exit 137 for the first three weeks in May and the Sunoco right after the 137 exit for the parkway last Monday the 27th of May. The car did not break down until today and I had it towed to Autoland Toyota who says contaminated gas caused the problem.

I've been getting gas from Enrite in Clifton and my car has been stalling only after I hit the breaks, then I'm able to start it up again. I spent about $1000 during its scheduled maintenance with no specific diagnosis for the stalling (mechanic said he changed a bunch of stuff like spark plugs, etc.) My husband used the car to try and replicate, but perhaps because he uses a different gas station, it never stalled with him. Then now it's back with me, I went to Enrite again twice, then the stalling started again. Fortunately I can still start the car but I'm never going back to Enrite.
