UPDATE on Fuel Contamination
Well....after 5 days of being in the shop, the guys finally figured out what happened. They pulled the fuel filter, checked the fuel pump and then took fuel samples. As I suspected, the fuel was contaminated. I saw the sample that was taken from my gas tank and, to my dismay, it looked more like cloudy water than anything else. I wasn't too happy about the dark, floating objects on the bottom, either.
Talked to Frank (owner/operator of Frank'* Auto in Oshawa) today and he said the fuel is so contaminated that it no longer had a flash-point. So no WONDER the sample didn't look like much more than water!
So I guess the plan now is to call Sunoco Head Office on tuesday and complain (probably to no avail) and see if they will pay for my car repairs.
Sounds like I'm going to have to switch to a different fuel company.
I was thinkin about goin up the road to Esso (Hwy#2 and Varcoe Rd-Courtice) but I'm not sure about their fuel. Maybe I'll do some research into them and some other companies and try to determine which one to use.
Won't be getting my car back until tomorrow sometime - they have to drain my tank (just filled it up - 68.11 litre capacity), clean the tank, discard the contaminated fuel, put everything back together and then put in $10 worth of fuel. I am hoping the repair bill isn't going to be too astranomical.
Anyway... Now we all know that my station has provided contaminated fuel twice in 2 months.
Talk to y'all later!
