ExxonMobil reopens its terminal

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

ExxonMobil opened its Baton Rouge terminal and gasoline loading racks Thursday for the first time in more than a week.

Local repair shops had seen several vehicles being brought in with problems after owners filled up with gas last week. 

Exxon officials say that a bad ratio of gasoline's ingredients--apparently not some outside contaminant-- created the bad gas that messed up people's cars.

The two problem batches of gas are reportedly gone now from ExxonMobil's plant and all gas stations.

Exxon has offered to talk to everyone affected by the bad gas and help out on repairs.

Drivers who've had problems are being told to call Exxon's support line to file a claim at 855-300-2659.
