Quiktrip Complaint - Bad Gas Smells Like Alcohol

Review by vern151 on 2011-09-07
GLENPOOL, OKLAHOMA -- I got gas at Quiktrip on 09-06-2011 Glenpool 141st. After about 40 miles started to run rough. At same time I filled a gas can and it smells like alcohol. Has anyone else had the same problem?

You didn't put E85 in by any chance?

I have a shock for you. If you look up the materials sheet for alcohol, you will see that it is a colorless, odorless liquid. As I saw in a court hearing one day (not one of mine,) The guy's attorney attacked the officer's report, when he stated the subject smelled of alcohol. It is the odor of alcoholic beverages, not alcohol. Even if alcohol did have an odor, you would not be able to detect it in a gasoline mixture.

Any possibility that the gas station's underground fuel tank was mis-filled with E-85? If a vehicle does not have a "flex-fuel" engine, it will run rough on E-85. QuikTrip needs to pay for your fuel system repairs because it was their gas that went bad.
