Man claims local Shell station sold him bad diesel

By john.wallace

Ryan Pekarik's Volkswagen runs on diesel, but it wasn't running very well after he filled his tank at the QMart Shell station at 9410 North Sam Houston Parkway East near Wilson Road.

"It just kept getting worse," Pekarik said. "The rough starting issues and then it started rough idling."

A mechanic drained the diesel from Pekarik's car.

"In the tank was a bunch of dirty fuel," said Pekarik.

He saved the fuel that was drained from his car, took pictures and included them in his claim to Shell. He wanted the company to pay for his $630 fuel flush, but Shell denied the claim. A representative told him Shell had the diesel pumps tested and they found no problems with the fuel.
