Bad Gasoline Traced To Tank In New Haven

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Department of Consumer Protection has determined seven gas stations in southern Connecticut sold bad gasoline that caused problems for more than 100 motorists.

A statement from the agency Friday says the contaminated gasoline came from a fuel tank in New Haven. The tank has been removed from service.

Reports of bad fuel and problems with vehicles prompted the department to open an investigation on Thursday.

The agency has encouraged people who experienced problems from the bad fuel to save their receipts and contact the department and the gas station.
