Bad gas leaves damaged cars & RVs , angry drivers

SEATTLE -- Three gas stations were shut down temporarily on Sunday after at least 11 vehicles were damaged by bad gas the drivers had just pumped.

"I filled the tank up and as soon as I pulled away from the pump my car died," said Mary Anne Trengove, who stopped at the Shell station on 2nd Street in Snohomish.

"The guy right next to him had just filled up his motorhome and the motorhome did the same thing -- started but didn't pull away.

Officials said tanker trucks that filled up at the Shell Terminal on Harbor Island in Seattle at about 5 p.m. Sunday received a sludgy gas that may have been mixed with water.

The gasoline was delivered to several Puget Sound area Shell and Safeway gas stations.
