Warning to Everyone...!!! PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE!!!
I was running very low on gas, and this was the first service station I came to right off the highway exit...
I bought $20.00 worth of gas at this station on sat., March 21st,2009. I always use my credit card at the pump, but it was taped up, so I had to use cash. I went in, bought $20.00 lotto and $20.00 gas. While I was pumping the attendent Malik came outside and asked is the pump working right? I said it is slowly working and the handle keep clicking off. He said oh, and to let him know if it keep doing it. It kept doing it.
Once I finished pumping the gas, I pulled off and headed back onto the highway. As I approached the highway, I tried to accelerate and my dashboard went haywire. All kinds of lights came on including my check engine light. I immediately took the next exit and my car cut off and I coasted off to the service road (Thank GOD!!), and my car stopped there.
I couldn't understand what had happened. I called for a tow company, and then I immediately called Q Stop, and spoke to Malik with my speaker phone on and witnesses around, and told him I was stranded one exit from Q Stop where I got the gas. He told me he remembered me and apologized, and I told him, I think his company has bad gas. He said if so, then I needed to get it checked out and if that is the case, then to call for the Owner on Monday, March 23rd,2009, after 2pm, and to discuss the situation. I said okay.
My car was towed to a local Autoshop and they pulled out nothing but water out of my tank and about a teaspoon of gas, which I still have now. The autoshop could not get it all out, so my car was towed to the Dealership in Dallas, which it is still there now.
Today, Monday 23rd,at 2pm I called Q stop and a girl answered and said the owner will be here at 3pm, and to call then. I waited and still did not speak to the owner. He also owns the Conoco/Run in Red across the street. So I called there too at 4:10pm. I still got no answer. I just called again 4:35pm to the Q Stop and now no one picks up the phone. Sounds like he is avoiding me!?! Guess I'll just have to go the Media!..People need to be warned about this and not have to go through what I am going through now...
