Olathe, Kan. (AP) -- Two gasoline stations in suburban Kansas City mistakenly sold gas mixed with diesel fuel on one day this week.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1kFQdt1 ) two QuikTrip stores in Olathe sold the mixed up fuel Thursday.

QuikTrip spokesman Mike Thornbrugh says the mix up occurred at the fuel terminal, and tankers delivered the bad product to the stores. The contaminated fuel has been removed, and both stores resumed selling gasoline later Thursday.

Thornbrugh says the mixture of fuel can cause vehicles not to operate properly and the chain will pay for towing services, repairs and rental cars for affected customers. Those customers will also be reimbursed for their gas purchase and given a free tankful.
