CBS Atlanta gets action for woman whose car was damaged by bad gas

Posted: Updated:

Mark Ali, manager of the Citgo gas station on Glenwood Road and Columbia Drive, defended his station Thursday afternoon. He said accusations that his station is at fault for selling gas with water in it last October are wrong.

"Keystone Petroleum is the one who sold us the gas, we are not at fault," Ali said.

But Lakeshia Hayes said shortly after she filled up the tank on her SUV, it broke down. And she said she hasn't been able to get anyone associated with the gas station to pay for repairs. She said she asked Ali for help on several occasions but she said he never provided any information.

"I came here earlier today and yesterday and I gave him my paperwork proving what happened and he didn't give me anything. He gave me a piece of paper and told me to write my information down," said Hayes.

When CBS Atlanta News reporter Bernard Watson showed up, Ali told him to leave, but he later provided the number of Keystone Petroleum which has pledged to handle all claims.

"I got the number and I am thankful," said Hayes.

Ali said he wants people to understand his station has a long history of getting things right.

"The incident happened only once. We have been here for 40 years, and there was no water in our tank. They, Keystone Petroleum, delivered the gas and that is why they are responsible," Ali said.
