Contaminated fuel sold by a Morrisons petrol station left dozens of motorists stranded for hours after their cars broke down and could face repair bills of up to £6,000.
Around 30 vehicles caused chaos in the surrounding area of the Leicester petrol station when they ground to a halt after filling up with “watery orange” petrol which “looked like tea” on Tuesday afternoon.
Drivers now face their cars being written off or costing thousands of pounds to repair after the dodgy fuel caused serious damage to their engines.
Some were left waiting for up to seven hours to have their tanks drained after breaking down on the forecourt or just several metres away.
Morrisons shut off the pumps and closed down the site while an investigation was launched.
