RE: 2005 E55 Fuel Problems
My father used to own a Chevron gas station in EL Paso, TX. He always told me to buy gas from a name brand, because they change the tanks more regularly than the cheap gas stations. The tanks underground tend to get water in them. I know EPA has regulations to replace the tanks, but the name brand gas companies will require their franchises to replace the tanks when there is water in them. Right around the corner from me, an EXXON franchise owner lost his franchise, because he would not replace his tanks. Now the gas station is a MALCO gas station.
I avoid Citgo and other cheap gas stations like Black Death. I was surprised that Citgo paid for the damages. By buying gas from a cheap gas station, you are playing water roulette.
