BAD GAS
Posted by Legolas on 10/21/2004
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- Quick Trip gas stations seem to be popping up all over our state since last year. When they opened inour neighborhhod we got coupons and went to buy our gas there. 3 days later, my car stopped working in an intersection and needed to be towed. A few weeks later my husband'a car started to show signs of severe powerloss, so much that it became impossible to drive on the freeway. Another friend of ours had the same problem with his older car. All 3 cars had carburator/ fuel injector probelms. We will never get gas there again.

well, actually "tank farms" have little or nothing to do with the problems you are describing here. "Off Brand" fuel dealers purchase from whomever they can get the best "deal" on gas from - hence they buy from multiple sources. The gas in America comes from the same few refineries, despite the different brand names. The problem with Off Brand gas retailers, is usually they are older establishments that have passed through several hands over the years, have older equipment and underground tanks that more readily accumulate CONDENSATION (water) when they don't keep their supplies topped off (because they are waiting to find their next bargain shipment.)

Just because you pump gas there, doesn't give you the inside scoop about products and refineries. Next you'll be telling us about the business model behind selling milk and lottery tickets, no that's right, you didn't learn that stuff while getting your G.E.D. I was speaking in generalities, having never heard of that particular chain you spoke of because I don't live in the SOUTH, and heaven forbid would never consider it. Contamination CAN occur at any point, but since YOU mentioned WATER contamination in your original post, I pointed out the most likely cause, CONDENSATION and groundwater invasion due to aged storage containers. I'm sure you think your career of pumping gas like Goober and driving a rig makes you so knowledgeable in such a learned area as gasoline, but I think you should stick to what YOU know, insults and rounding up the carts at WalMart!

Concerning QT gasoline quality. I have three vehicles which travel approximately 350 miles per day 5 days per week. I use QT gas in all of my vehicles without incident. Perhaps the problems with your vehicles were both pre-existent from another fuel station as well as failure to use injector cleaners every three or four fuelings. So many people simply pump the gas and forget about simple maintenance. Vehicles need their injector systems cleaned and it is something one can do at the pump.

For siffer and 1hung2lo!!! I really think you both need to address the issue spoken of by Legolas rather than going on a tangent of which it is obvious neither of you are informed. She spoke of having had engine problems after using a particularly popular fuel station's gasoline. I worked for both Exxon and another (unnamed) company for a combined 15yrs. It is really sad to read your 3 cents when the comment isn't correct or worth the time you spent writing your tangent. Address Legolas' issue and tell of your experiences not your made up stories or thoughts of how You think things are in the world of fuel manufacturing, containment, and shipment. Good day gentlemen (and I use that term loosely).

My trip home WASN'T QUIK
Posted by 75 south rider on 04/05/2010
MCDONOUGH, GEORGIA -- AFTER ENJOYING MY WEEKEN OFF IN ATLANTA AREA I HEADED FOR HOME AT 2AM MONDAY MORNING. I HAVE MY AVALACHE SERVICE ON A REGULAR SO I TRUST MY CAR EVEN THOUGH IT AN 2002. STOP ON I- 75 IN MCDONOUGH, GA AT A QUIK TRIP GOT ABOUT $50 in gas and jump back on I-75 south. at first the trip was going ok then as I headed up hill 15 miles in to my travel my car began to loose power and speed dropping from 75 - 60 each and every hill. I stopped again 30 minutes later and and some gas treatment and got back on the highway the truck struggled for the next 2 hours. That how long it took me to travel less than 80 miles. Its usually takes an hour to travel this distance and I could barely keep car at 50 miles an hour and my truck is shiver with power loss. At 4am I planned to be nearing home not 2 hours away and everything in site was close. Pull on exit slept from about 4am to 8am till Auto zone informed me that my car was miss firing and could have bad gas attendant recommended I try heat which should remove water from gas and Lucas gas treatment. Got back on highway truck performed a little better but the trembling from loosing power was to much on the ride not to mention every hill posed a safety threat as big trucks zoomed by its now 11am had to call in to work and wait on emergency road side assistance. got home at 1:30pm. A 4hour quik trip took 11:30 hours on bad gas.4 days later an ASE certified mechanic said it was bad gas suggested I call Quik Trip. spoke to a member of there management team who was helpful. He faxed over information for claim and now I wait to see how much they guarantee there gas and there name, because my Trip was not Quik

Despite the poor gas (which I'm sure happens from time-to-time), it seems as though the customer service was actually pretty good.

Actually I have never experience this severity of bad gas, I'm 35 years of age and have owned a car since 17 years of age about 8 different cars. As for there service, that has yet to be determine, I am looking at $1000.00 repairs, am I suppose to have to bare this expence on my own, remember Quik Trip guarantees there gas that the difference and when I visit Atlanta I stop in at Quik Trip for that reason.

I remember people telling me of receiving a tank of bad gas. The only solution then was to drive the vehicle until the gas had been used. I think it had to do with the station's underground tanks being flooded with rainwater overflow. Keep us informed. I've not heard of bad gasoline in years.

I just had the same thing happen to me after filling up at Quik Trip on Hwy 41 & allgood road in Marietta, Ga. Filled up - went to my daughters gradutaion which was less than a mile from quik trip. after graduation was on the way to her graduation luncheon and the car started sputtering and jerking and losing power. This was on interstate 75. when I got off at the exit and came to the stop light the car went dead. I re-started and every time I tried to push the gas pedal the car would move a few feet and stall. I did this over and over until I was able to pull into a Hotel parking lot. The car would start and idle fine, but every time I pushed the gas it would stall. I had to have the vehicle towed and I missed my Daughters graduation luncheon. I am very anxious to get the mechanics report to see if the gas was an issue. I just think it is too coincidental that I had the problem shortly after filling up at QuikTrip. I always maintain my vehicles faithfully and had the car in for regular maintenace about a month ago.

I actually for QT and after putting gas in my car from the station that I work at my car threw 2 misfires and has an insane amount of blow by. I think I'm looking at a new bottom end. I'm not happy about this at all seeing as the engine was rebuilt 20k miles ago.

If you like getting stuck on the road, go to quick trip.

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI -- Purchased a 2000 Suburban a week ago. All service records, ran awesome. Filled it with Quick Trip gas and 2 days later my fiancee and two children are stuck on Highway 364. Corporate was no help and informed me that my BMW was the problem, even though I was having issues with my Suburban. My BMW was also having the same issues, loss of power, missing, running like crap and telling me my o2 sensors were faulting, filled it with 89 octane at quicktrip 20 minutes prior to the issues. I have always used Quick Trip gas, had the same issue last year when they switched blends. BMW ran like crap, threw o2 sensor codes and eventually ran itself out after several Lucas and seafoam treatments. Imagine that......its back again. And they blame my BMW, yet posted no warnings about BMW's having issues with their products. Called my BMW mechanic, informed me that he has a car in his shop as we spoke with similar issues with qt gas, fuel tests revealed that the gas is garbage. I put at least 500 miles per week on my car and know every tick on it.

After the hell I've been through and the danger imposed on my family I will never return and I hope this will make you think twice before you make my mistake. As a BMW owner I have learned the hard way you need to pay attention to what you out in your cars.

Luckily, my BMW is running, Damn German won't stop. My Suburban on the other hand is sitting with the repair bill stacking up that I must produce upfront and fight these A-holes for, guess I love a challenge and a good fight. In the spirit of the STL, qt...BMW's are expensive. So are suburbans....you gonna learn today.

Thanks for Standing There & Watching the Line

OAKLAND (ST. LOUIS), MISSOURI -- For those of you familiar with QuikTrip, the place can get crazy busy, especially in the morning, lunchtime, and evening. Most of the QT's I go to usually have 3-4 people at the counter ringing people out, then 1 or 2 people restocking and "working the floor," which works to get people in an our quickly.

At this particular location, especially at lunchtime, you will usually only find 1 or 2 people at the counter with 3-4 on the floor, which is not good when you have a line of 10+ people. To make matters worse, there are two midage women (one blonde, one redish/brown hair) that are always just standing around by the coffee talking about who knows what. You want to stand around a talk when it is slow, fine. However, when you got 10+ people in line and the 2 people at the counter are new (nice kids, but still in that slow/learning phase), don't just glance at the line and keep talking about last night's episode of Couger Town, go ring some people up.

I'm sorry somewhere down the line you made some mistakes that caused to you work at a convience store at the age of 45, but try to take some pride in your work and help out. The only time I've seen either one of these women ringing people out is at like 2pm when no one is in there.

That is why I still go to the Watson Road one instead. They always, ALWAYS have at least 3 people working the counter.

I understand your complaint, and even agree to an extent. However, coming from someone who has both a bachelor's and a doctorate degree, I disagree that "mistakes" lead to people becoming middle-aged convenience store workers. There is no shame in any line of legal, honest work. Please stop judging people. It takes all of us to make this world work....just my 2 cents.

This came off as a somewhat arrogant review, imho. Maybe these women's job IS stocking and NOT register.
You seem too busy with yourself to deal with how life really operates.
