WHITING, Ind. – BP is alerting northwestern Indiana fuel distributors that it's recalling unleaded regular gasoline shipped from its Whiting fuel storage terminal Aug. 13-17.
The company said Monday it believes that fuel stored in a tank at the storage depot could cause hard starting, stalling and other drivability issues. BP asks any customer whose vehicle has experienced those problems since Aug. 13 to contact its customer hotline at 1-800-333-3991.
BP says the fuel may have been purchased by motorists at BP and other retail outlets in the region. Ricker's said Tuesday that none of the recalled BP gasoline made it to any Ricker's stores.
BP says it's going through shipping records and contacting customers who may have loaded tanker trucks at the terminal during the affected period.
