Price v. BP Products North America Inc includes anyone who purchased gas in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin or Ohio from August 13, 2012, through September 7, 2012 from certain BP Retail Outlets. If you purchased gas and experienced problems or had to make repairs you might be entitled to a nice cash payment as a result of the BP Tainted Gas Class Lawsuit Settlement. The lawsuit revolves around 4.7 million gallons of tainted gasoline that had to be recalled by BP. Class members claim that this gasoline caused engine problems which resulted in costly repairs. You can find a list of gas stations that sold the tainted glass here.
