Grossly Contaminated Fuel: What Shell said before ABC News intervened

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from an article by by STEPHANIE ZIMMERMANN published 21 March 2014 by ABC News under the headline: Michigan Gas Station Pumps Fuel ‘Grossly Contaminated’ With Water, Kills Car

Dear ABC News Fixer: I filled my gas tank with fuel that was contaminated with water, causing more than $1,300 in damage to my car – and now the Shell station won’t reimburse me.

I presented this information to Shell and they basically told me to take it to court. I think it’s shameful that Shell, which makes billions of dollars a year, refuses to take responsibility for damage to my vehicle that was clearly caused by faulty fuel from one of their stations.

After ABC News Intervened

After we showed all your proof to Shell, they sprang into action. The next morning, you got a call from the distributor, who apologized several times and promised to pay for all your damages. You also heard from a wholesale sales manager at Shell, who said he wanted to make sure everything was being handled.

A few days later, the refund from the distributor arrived: a total of $1,916.45 — $1,362.50 for the repair, $57.95 for the gas purchase and $496 for your missed day of work dealing with the problem.

A short while after that, the sales manager from Shell sent you a package containing two $25 Shell gift cards, a Shell coat and a Shell hat, along with a note saying they appreciate your business. So now this is really fixed.
