Sulfur Damage From Shell Gasoline

I don't know if everyone knows this or not, but Shell shut down several of its gas stations in LA all the way out to FL. Elevated traces of sulfur were found in their gasolines which has lead to many broken gas guages. I fill up with nothing but Shell premium, and I have noticed that my needle has been acting funny. I just filed a claim online with Shell for my '95 LS400. I have every single recipt for fill-ups since I got the LS back in March along with my own vehicle mileage(at fill ups) and fuel consumption spreadsheet. Lexus of N.O. gave me an estimated price of $400-$600 for repairs. Shell better get ready to pony up for my repairs; I've used their gas since March with no problems, and now other people and I have these gas gauge problems that seem to be more than a coincidence. Has anyone else had this problem? Has anyone spoken to Shell about how they will repair our cars?

Here's a link to the story from a local N.O. paper: http://www.nola.com/search/index.ssf?/base...183560.xml?nola

You are right. However, the concern here was the kind of sulfur and the amounts of this particular type of sulfur. Our(LA's) attorney general is the process of questioning Shell about this outbreak of gas gauge problems for us Shell consumers.

Fuel from South America has a lot of sulfur. It's usually sold in so called *supermarket* outlets. High sulfur fuel that's sold in the U.S. caused BMW to replace a lot of V8 short blocks before they changed the type of cylinder liners they were using.
