Dangerous gas mixture sold in Winterset

Posted:

WINTERSET (KWWL) -- A Winterset gas station is warning customers about bad kerosene.

Customers who bought the fuel from the Kum and Go station in Winterset are being asked to return it because it could contain a dangerous mix of gasoline.

A Kum and Go spokeswoman says 50 to 70 gallons of the mixture were sold between Friday and Monday to customers who thought they were buying kerosene, but gasoline was added to the tank where kerosene is kept creating a highly combustible mixture.

The Winterset fire chief says if the mixture is ignited, there's a high potential for an explosion.
