Never had a problem. Nor have I noticed a difference between Costco and name brand gas.

I've been buying gas from Costco in Citrus Heights, CA for at least 3 years and have never noticed any problem.

No problems at all here either, Costco gas is just as good if not better than anywhere else.

Never a problem with Costco gas on either coast. I believe they use the same wholesalers as everyone else, so the gas is equal.

I just wanted to see if anyone experienced a similar problem as the situation below.

A person I know went to Costco to fill up a tank full of premium gas and went home directly. Next day, when she started the engine, the engine light turned on and she brought the car to her car dealer, which has an AAA rating from BBB. The dealer reported diesel in her gas tank and repaired the issue. Costco does not normally sell diesel and the pump does not have a button for diesel. The car owner also did not go anywhere to get more gas between the time she left Costco and the time she arrived at the car dealer.
