Dozens of cars reportedly broke down this past week after filling up at a pair of Colorado gas stations, where for some unknown reason the cars were filled up with the wrong kind of fuel.
According to Fox 31 Denver, these breakdowns occurred to customers who filled at either a Circle K in Boulder or a King Soopers (a Kroger-owned regional supermarket chain) in Brighton. Both stations' gas pumps were delivering either gasoline contaminated with a significant quantity of diesel or diesel outright. The Circle K reportedly blamed "bad gas" with diesel in it for the issue, whereas the King Soopers attributed an outside vendor for its diesel-filled gas tanks.

I had the same thing happen to me over 30 years ago. I filled up the ‘69 Chevy Impala with what I thought was regular leaded gas. Turns out they mixed diesel with it. I made it work just fine. However, on the way home, it was a completely different experience. The gas station did flush out the fuel tank and lines.
