BP Gas Station Complaint - Wrong Color Handle For Diesel Fuel
SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA -- I have a 2010 F350 Diesel Truck. When traveling from my residence in Suffolk, Virginia, I always refuel at the BP Gas Station on Hwy 460 in Suffolk, Virginia. On 11/25/11, I stopped at the BP Gas Station, same pump as usual, grabbed the "green handle" refueling nossel and filled my truck up with $100 worth of what I thought was diesel fuel. I drove 35 miles when my truck shut down, subsequently making me late for work by 4 hours. At the time, I had no idea why the truck engine quit. Never would have guess it was fuel related.
The truck was then delivered to the Ford Dealership where it was purchased. The mechanic informed me that my truck was the 7th or 8th truck destroyed this month that has refueled at BP Gas Station.
It is common knowledge of every diesel owner that diesel refueling handles are Green. I think the Gas Companies are already making plenty of money off of their fuel from their customers. Why change the colors of the diesel handles and invite opportunity for mistakes that leads to more money from our pockets? It is already difficult in the economic times, working 2 jobs to make ends meet, just to go farther in debt by destroying a $60,000 truck on $100 worth of fuel just because this gas company changed the colors of the handles.
I think BP Gas Company should reimburse the money to replace or repair every destroyed vehicle of the loyal customers that were using their products.
