VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTKR) Deborah Rock and her 1989 Corvette have always been inseparable.

But for the last three weeks, she’s been stuck at home and her car is stuck in the shop.

She says she got bad gas from a BP Gas Station on Laskin Road and First Colonial in Virginia Beach.

After filling up her tank, Rock says her car died.

Rock had it towed to her dealership where they confirmed her suspicion. She was told she had a tank full of contaminated gas.

And to get her car running again, mechanics had to flush it out and replace several parts.

And it wasn’t cheap. The repairs cost more than $700.
