WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A three month long Contact 5 Investigation has already caused the state of Florida to take action and the story hasn’t even aired yet.
Getting a batch of bad gasoline can do some damage to your car and cost a lot of money to repair.
“The whole car started vibrating, it would chug for just a second and then stop,” said driver Kerry Warwick.
It happens more than you think. One local mechanic has had three cases in just four weeks.
The Contact 5 Investigators wanted to know who’s protecting you at the pump. What they found may surprise you.
“I’m shocked, shocked,” said one customer.
The Contact 5 Investigators took gasoline samples at stations throughout South Florida. What they discovered caused the Department of Agriculture to step in and take action.
It’s news every driver can use before filling up.
