Ethanol Being Blamed for Increase in Number of Water in Gas Incidents

Service centers across North Texas are seeing disturbing vehicle damage from water in gasoline.

Some experts believe the problem is a by-product of ethanol-enriched gas, allowing water to mix with gas more easily.

The problem can cause engine problems and cost hundreds of dollars in repairs.

Car critics say water in the tank used to be rare until the changeover to ethanol mixed gas.
