Exxon Express Mart

The Exxon Express Mart, 1400 W. Central Texas Expressway in Killeen, sold bad gas during the heavy rains on May 4.

During the heavy rains on May 4, water somehow mixed with gasoline being sold at the Exxon Express Mart, 1400 W. Central Texas Expressway in Killeen.

Since then, a number of vehicle owners who purchased fuel at the station that day have experienced engine problems.

C.P. Paudel, manager of the Exxon Express Mart, doesn't know how water got into the gas. He said three or four people have come into the station, asking that the cost of their engine repairs be covered.

Paudel is referring the customers to the station's insurance carrier, Abbas Insurance of Dallas, 972-812-0786.

"People are coming in wanting to be paid in cash," Paudel said Thursday. "We don't do that."

Since the incident, a technician has thoroughly cleaned the equipment at the station. "Right now, the gas is clean," Paudel said.
