Emarats Ibn Battuta fuel station has been temporarily closed for inspection after one of the underground fuel tanks got contaminated with water, a company official confirmed to Emirates 24|7.
The underground fuel storage tanks are property sealed, but water did seep into one of these tanks. This is the reason for the cars getting stalled, said Hussain Kazim, Manager, Corporate Communications, Emarat.
At least 15 cars were affected due to the water mixing with the fuel with the company temporarily closing the station for inspection.
As a precaution, we are checking all the underground tanks in the station. We will look into the matter after getting the inspection and technical reports. We expect the station to be operational by tomorrow.
Asked about compensation, the official said that they would certainly compensate those affected in all possible ways.
On Sunday, some of the motorists who requested for Super variety fuel from the Ibn Battuta fuel station saw their cars getting stalled and their vehicles had to be towed to workshops.
Happened to me once when a tanker truck driver put diesel in the unleaded tank at a station just off the interstate north of Wichita KS. The station operator caught it before I drove off but had to pay to have some cars brought back to town from the highway. They towed all of us to a local shop that drained our entire tank.
This is not breaking news. Can we please sideline this mundane stuff?
Yeah. What we really need is more ground-breaking explanations of Scripture from the Rood Awakening guys!
