Mercer County spokeswoman Julie Willmot says the stations will remain closed until all underground storage tanks, lines and filters are emptied and cleaned.

More overhead expenses for the OIL COMPANY that has to repair the vehicles for their mistake. "AKA" consumers will pay for it a PENNY at that time at the pumps.

Engine died on everyone of them as they drove away.
Required tow, draining fuel tank, hours lost.

Jet fuel won't burn in an automotive engine that requires gasoline. Just like filling the tank with water.

Jet fuel is basically kerosene. I don't think that even a flex-fuel car would be able to digest that stuff.

Station vends jet fuel instead of gasoline at pumps, if only the vehicle had jet engines then everything would have turned out fine. Flying cars? But the vehicle has a gasoline engine and things will get very costly for the fuel distributor.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
