Angry Watch out for Gas station mix water with gas!

I really think there are couple spots in my area used to mix water with their gas since my car started choking after filled up and got back on the rood. I experienced in some mobil and shell station in san gabriel valley.

Can't be... There's a new CA regulation on that. The government forced gas station companies to install units within within the underground tanks. If a certain amount of water is detected in the gas, the entire station shuts down and only a federal agent can turn it back on... There was a special on CBS.. They got more detailed into it though...

You are not saying that they are purpously mixing water in gas are you?
Like stated there is a law that requires all stations to change out their storage tanks before summer if it is not one of the approved type.
Older stations have been contaminatating our ground water tables because the tanks were all leaking.
