FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Krishna Abrams announced Monday that Shell Oil Products will pay out more than $762,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by eight California counties, including Solano County.

Prosecutors claimed Shell did not tell customers using gift cards and fuel rewards cards that some discounts could not be combined and that not all Shell gas stations honored the cards. The lawsuit also claimed Shell failed to redeem gift cards with balances of less than $10 for cash as required by California law and that Shell did not tell customers about some of the limits of its rewards programs.

Solano County will receive more than $98,000 as its portion of the settlement.

Shell admitted no liability in reaching the settlement.

“My office is committed to ensuring that California’s consumer protection and advertising laws are followed, both to protect consumers and to create a level playing field for all businesses,” Abrams said.
