BP is doubling the size of its gas recall from Indiana’s Whiting refinery – which now sits at 4.7 million gallons of gasoline.  The petroleum company has also identified the gas stations that received shipments of recalled gas.  According to an online searchable database at BP’s website, there are several stations in the IPR listening area that received the recalled gas.

In Muncie, the BP station at the corner of McGalliard and Walnut.

In Anderson, there are three stations:
The corner of Scatterfield and 59th
The corner of State Road 32 and Park Road
The corner of 53rd and Martin Luther King Boulevard.

BP says all gas stations were told to stop selling the tainted gas and to properly clean out their holding tanks.  Company spokesman Scott Dean says BP has begun processing nearly ten thousand claims from customers whose vehicles were affected – mostly in Indiana and Illinois.
