Gas pains

My stepdaughter’s car came up lame over the weekend, so she had it towed to the dealership yesterday.

The preliminary tests showed the onboard computer was spazzing out and reporting several error codes.

They dug deeper this morning and f0und a lot of water in the gas tank. How much to remove and drain the tank? $500+.

We found a trustworthy shop that would do it for half that figure.

Plus, the guy who runs the shop has had experience with the sleazy station where she got the corrupted fuel and presumably can help in recovering her damages.

So far, we’re out $98 for the dealership diagnostics and $60 for a tow, but we may get it all back.

At least we can hope.
