Customer Question
I just filled up my...
I just filled up my 2013 Subaru and it started running rough and now won't start. The station said they had a sign on the fuel pump not to use which they say was on the ground. The pump worked with my credit card as normal. It now appears, that it probably had water in the pump and I now have it in my tank. Is there an easy fix?
