ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The outbreak of contaminated gasoline is growing as the refiner confirms delivery of the tainted product to stations in more cities.
Western Refining now says it sent bad gas to 11 gas stations in New Mexico.
On Wednesday KRQE News 13 reported two stations in the metro area got bad batches: the Shell Giant station at Paradise and Universe NW and the Conoco Giant in Rio Rancho at Rio Rancho Boulevard and Corrales Boulevard.
Western Refining is not naming the nine additional stations and only saying they're in Santa Fe, Gallup, Farmington, Kirtland and Jamestown on Interstate 40 east of Gallup.
The company says it's already had 100 complaints from drivers claiming damage to the engines of their cars.
