N.J. cars pumped full of jet fuel


KEYPORT, N.J. Several motorists fueling up in Monmouth County Sunday found themselves with tanks full of jet fuel, though that didn't mean their cars would be taking off. Instead, they were stalling out.

Police told CBS Station WCBS that jet fuel was mistakenly delivered to a Delta gas station on Highway 36 Sunday morning.

Some cars gassed up on the jet fuel, and ended up stalling out as a result.

The gas station has been closed down until its operators can identify which pump the fuel was put into, so that it can be cleaned out.

Hazardous materials crews said there was no fire danger.

A Lukoil station in Manasquan also received the wrong fuel, The Star Ledger reports.
