Inspection finds Valero station in Decatur sold customers contaminated fuel
An inspection by the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Fuel and Measures Division confirmed what several Decatur residents suspected: the Valero station on West Howard sold them bad gas.
Last week, several of the customers took to social media to complain that the station’s fuel cost them hundreds of dollars in repairs.
The Department of Agriculture confirmed to Decaturish that samples of premium fuel were contaminated.
“According to the report, the premium gas failed due to the presence of water in the sample,” a spokesperson for the department said. “Upon receiving the results of the tests, the station closed all premium and mid -grade pumps until they can be cleared to reopen.”
WSB-TV reported that the station’s owner will meet with every customer who purchased the contaminated fuel.
Here’s the full report, provided by the Department of Agriculture.
