purchased a full tank of gas (gas light was on and i was basically running on fumes). Total tank came to $40.01. Brand new 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. About 20 minutes later, car started bucking and shaking. Went to dealer - had car looked at and gas tested - contaminated gas - alcohol level was at 15%, which is much higher than they NYState standard. Also hydrometer was .738 heavy. Entire fuel system was ruined - needed new fuel pump, six spark plugs and entire gas tank dropped and all lines cleaned. Car was tied up for 3 days. Filed complainet with DEC, BBB, Valero Corporation and Weights and Measures Bureau because owner of gs station refuses to acknowledge situation. Honestly, just want my $1, 404 reimbursed - not interested in anything more. Any other suggestions? Thanks - Laura
