Epic Fail At Thrifty Gas
According to a report at ABC 7 News, a huge snafu at Thrifty Gas at Balboa and Rinaldi left a herd of disabled cars in its wake this morning.
Apparently, the driver of a fuel delivery tanker mistakenly put diesel in the station's unleaded tank, and in turn, several drivers filled their tanks with diesel fuel, causing their cars to stall.
My favorite part of ABC7's report: "While people were still filling up with diesel, Thrifty employees said nothing to the customers. They just taped small signs on all the pumps and went back inside. The employees are in there hiding out, the owner's hiding out...."
Hopefully, the victims of this witless move will be compensated for their repair bills, but no word on that yet.
