WESTBURY - A Westbury gas station has been shut down by Nassau Consumer Affairs for allegedly selling contaminated gas.

The pumps were turned off at the BP station on the corner of Carman and Stewart avenues in Westbury.

News 12 has confirmed that at least five customers filed complaints with Consumer Affairs, saying their vehicles suddenly stopped running after getting gas at the BP station.

The consumer affairs commissioner says an inspector discovered 5 inches of water in the gas tanks. They say it was caused by melting snow and ice that seeped through a faulty seal.

The station will have to purge the contaminated pumps and replace fuel filters before reopening.
