Contaminated fuel. Photo supplied

A man who says a petrol station in the southern Tweed Heads area sold him contaminated fuel is seeking any other motorists who may have experienced the same. 

Chad Hamill told The Echo he has commenced legal proceedings against a petrol station franchisee.  

He says that on April 10, he filled his vehicle up with what he believed was diesel at southern Tweed Heads petrol station. He says he then broke down soon after near Sleepy Hollow and is still unable to get it going. 

‘The operator has a legal obligation to close off the diesel pumps to the public and do testing, which they never did!’ He also thinks there may be more than one petrol station that has carried contaminated fuel. 

If you have had issues with your car, and suspect petrol stations, contact [email protected] to add your name to a possible class action.

  1. Anyone else remember many years ago, the same thing happened at south Tweed and cars were breaking down going up Sexton hill? But there were multiple cars it happened to then. Perhaps ring NRMA and ask if there was an increase in breakdowns for this reason?
