BP should have to prove it didn't. They produce bad gasoline and then put the burden of proof on the consumer. Don't seem fair.

Another reason (besides high prices) not to buy BP gas. In this area they tend to be some of the higher priced gas stations.

Another huge black eye for BP. One would think that there would substantially improve their QC and decision making processes to minimize the frequency and severity of major screw-ups in the Gulf and the chemical composition and formulation of their fuel products...
