Gas stations have insurance for this purpose, have you looked into filing a claim?

I went through this with my 7.3 several years back, the Shell franchise's insurance company had to pay the $4K repair bill, and rent me a truck for 2 weeks.

This is the reason I keep all fuel receipts, and I always write the odometer mileage on them before I drive away.

It's enough evidence to convince them that they don't want to litigate.

It probably doesn't hurt that I'm an attorney, but when they took care of my 7.3 I never even mentioned my profession.

Also, the station may try to blame the supplier, don't let them. Get in touch with the Maryland (assuming that's where you got the gas) Dept. of Weights and Measures, they'll inspect their tanks ASAP, and can shut them down until the tanks are in order. Here's a complaint form : http://www.mda.state.md.us/weights_measures/complaint_form.php

If I can help, just ask.

Put a bottle of FPPF fuel additive and drain out your water seperator and you will be fine, I have this happen every year I park my truck inside and I live in MN where the temprature can go from 50 above zero to 30 below zero in just a few days so you end up with condensation in your fuel tank. So what I am saying is unless you live down south it is just something that happens.
