A gas station in Wingate, N.C. sold gas diluted with water that damaged drivers’ cars. WBTV started investigating the problem after a call to our tip line. A state inspector later confirmed the problem. Now the fuel distribution company is working to cover the cost of damage to drivers' cars.
WBTV first reported on wastewater capacity issues in July 2021 and things have only gotten more contentious since between politicians, staff, developers and anyone else trying to figure out the future of Union County, one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina.
