HAMILTON, N.J. (December 11, 2012)--Aviation fuel was pumped into cars after it was mistakenly delivered to three New Jersey gas stations, officials said.
Authorities closed a station in Lawrence, N.J. and two in Hamilton, N.J., after the error was discovered.
Mercer County spokeswoman Julie Willmot told The Times of Trenton the stations will remain closed until all underground storage tanks, lines and filters are emptied and cleaned.
State officials are investigating how the mistake happened.
Several cars stalled on Friday after a gas station in Keyport, N.J. and one in Manasquan, N.J. unknowingly pumped jet fuel into their tanks.
