What to do if a car is filled with low-quality fuel at a gas station

What to do if low-quality gasoline or diesel fuel is poured into the tank of your car.

Who in life has never had a situation when refueling at a not-so-familiar gas station became a necessity. And the quality of fuel that will be poured into the fuel tank of your car is always a lottery.

Experts explained what to do in cases when no luck.

You can understand that low-grade gasoline or diesel got into the car, according to some characteristic signs. This can be special unusual sounds, “floating” revolutions, deterioration of dynamic characteristics, sharply increased fuel consumption, black exhaust or other problems. Unfortunately, such signs do not appear immediately, but as a rule, when you have left a decent distance from an unscrupulous gas station.

The first necessary action in this case is to stop the car, because the shorter the engine runs on low-quality gasoline, the better for its “health”.

It is extremely important to get to the gas station “on your own” and voice your complaints. You must provide a cash receipt or video from the registrar, so that there is evidence that you refuel your car at this station.

If gas station employees begin to “deny” and not respond to your complaints, then feel free to demand an expert examination of the fuel. As a rule, large network gas stations have their own mobile laboratories. If this does not work, then you can invite independent experts to the place, and take gasoline or diesel fuel for analysis.

In this case, if the examination proves the low quality of the fuel, then you can immediately go to court and demand damages. Usually, the owners of gas stations try not to bring matters to litigation and go forward to solve the problem without involving government agencies..

The main thing to remember is that if you feel obvious signs that your car has been charged with low-quality fuel, immediately return to the offending gas station and prove your innocence.

All-wheel drive station wagon Subaru Legacy Outback – in the development of new markets

Station wagon Subaru Legacy Outback 15

Subaru cars generally stand out against the general background of other manufacturers, and the Subaru Legacy Outback model stands out even among the relatives of the company. The car has a single platform with Subaru Legacy, but differs in the increased clearance and the most powerful power units in a line of the company in this segment.

The Outback station wagon operates exclusively with opposed gasoline ICEs and has 4-cylinder installations of 165 and 245 forces, with a 2.5-3.0 cubic meter. The younger engine accompanies the manual transmission (5) and automatic transmission (4), and the senior manual transmission (6), for European deliveries and automatic transmission (5). All-wheel drive cars arrived at the domestic car market only with automatic transmissions. In versions of the station wagon with mechanics, the torque is distributed proportionally (50/50), and in configurations with automatic transmission, the distribution of traction is controlled by a viscous coupling. In some cars with manual transmission, you can additionally observe the presence of a downshift.

The interior of the car is interesting, using expensive materials, which is rare for the Japanese auto industry, at least in this segment. Specialists found the interior a bit narrow, particularly in the rear sector. Ergonomics at a high level, the only gripe is the lack of steering adjustment.

Outback installed as standard in the factory equipment: air conditioning system (2 phases), ABS with EBD distribution system, airbag (6 pillows), CD changer, alloy wheels. In the top version, in addition: an on-board computer with LCD, electric leather seats, xenon, automatic transmission and ESP (stabilization) system. Almost all cars imported to our country by authorized dealers are brand new.

During operation, all engines of the station wagon increase oil appetites, and exorbitantly. Timing belts are belt-driven; only the 6-cylinder unit has a chain mechanism to operate the distribution mechanism. These devices do not cause complaints. Platinum candles are installed in the ignition system, but they are not nursed for long, when using low-quality fuel. By the way, the manufacturer is categorically against the use of conventional devices.

Manual transmission works without problems, and automatic transmission needs a regulated oil change. The durability of the clutch assembly, as well as the brake pads, fully depends on the manner of operation of the car. Multi-link wagon suspension at the stern and McPherson on the bow. In the first place, silent blocks will be required, later stabilizer struts. The remaining components of the suspension and steering gear are strong and durable. By the way, repairing the latter is very expensive, not to mention installing a new one.
