Cars sputter and drivers fume: Marysville gas station sells diesel for unleaded
Posted by Mike Carter on April 18, 2012 at 8:58 PM

A Marysville Chevron station was dispensing diesel fuel out of its unleaded gas pumps for 18 hours on Sunday, crippling the cars of at least 18 drivers, KING5 television reports.

One was Calial Lyon, who’s driving her dad’s Subaru because she “gassed” up her Toyota at the Chevron Sunday on her way to a basketball tournament. Her car’s in the shop.

“As soon as I started my car it was like the gas pedal didn’t really register,” she said. Lyon quickly realized she wasn’t going anywhere.

“It just kind of started smoking and it wasn’t working at all,” she recalled.

Lyon said the costs of the repairs, which include flushing the fuel system and the gas tank, are being picked up by Harris Transport, the company that services the Marysville Chevron.
