Today at 5, I told you the story of a local guy who bought bad gas at a Shell station on the Beltway near Wilson Road. You can watch the story here. Ryan Pekarik told me he felt helpless when Shell originally denied his claim for his car repairs. He’s not a fuel expert; but he is a computer guy… so he used the skills he has to try and help others. He started a website called Bad Gas Reports. It will only work if consumers actually share their bad gas stories and experiences. Check it out.
It is not an alternative, though, to filing any complaints with the Texas Department of Agriculture. You can do that by calling 1-800-TELL-TDA. Call as soon as you realize there is a problem so an inspector can get to the pump while there is still fuel to be tested!
