Okay I stand corrected and you have well said your claim and backed it up
with reliable news sources.
Of course if you had just included that simple little link in the begining
we could have red the story and gone out and filled up our tanks anyway
because lets face it, we don't carry test kits for our gasoline to test it
before we buy so we rely on the refiners to give us good stuff. Just like we
rely on the wieghts and measure guys to make sure the pumps are pumping a
gallon when it says it's a gallon.
I stand corrected on the shell closing thanks for the links.
You are attributing/linking in the thread, this to the wrong person, all
I did was explain the gauge.
I could have come up with the old ones (links) that happened a couple
years back, this isn't the first time. Chrysler and Jeep gauges were
86/00 CJ7 Laredo, 33x9.5 BFG Muds, 'glass nose to tail in '00
88 Cherokee 235 BFG AT's
A news release from the oil refinery resposible for it:
New Orleans, Louisiana Gas Gauge Advisory
Motiva Enterprises LLC has determined that gasoline delivered into its
Kenner, Louisiana Distribution Terminal contains elevated levels of sulfur.
The elevated levels of sulfur may cause gas gauge sensors on some vehicles
to malfunction; however, these elevated sulfur levels are not known to
affect engine performance or cause engine damage.
Motiva is temporarily ceasing the sale of gasoline from its Kenner Terminal
and is supplying the market with fuel from the company's distribution
terminal located in Convent, Louisiana.
Some Texaco and Shell-branded stations in the New Orleans area have received
supply from the Kenner Terminal. Because the quality of our gasoline is
paramount to us, we have elected to temporarily halt selling gasoline at
stations that have been affected. We will remedy the situation at affected
locations to ensure the integrity of our product.
Customers experiencing unusual gas gauge readings are encouraged to monitor
their mileage or to keep fuel tanks filled in order to prevent run-outs.
Shell stands behind its products and affected customers can contact Shell at
Motiva and Shell regret this occurrence and are working diligently and
applying all appropriate resources to resolve known and suspected sulfur
issues affecting fuel quality as quickly as possible. In addition, we are
also working closely with affected parties to help ensure adequate supplies
of gasoline for our customers.
