Patch Flash: Bad BP Gas Sold in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin

Chicagoland news to talk about: No charges in deadly Palatine stabbing.

BP is recalling unleaded regular gasoline that was shipped from the company’s Whiting fuel storage terminal between Aug. 13 and 17 after motorists throughout the region began experiencing problems with hard starting or getting their cars to start at all.

According to a statement from BP, the company believes fuel stored in a tank at the storage depot could cause hard starting, stalling and other issues. The gas may have been bought by motorists patronizing BP and other retail outlets in Northwest Indiana during the past seven days. The issue surfaced Monday as dealerships and service shops throughout the region were inundated with motorists having difficulty starting their vehicles. The News Sun is reporting that the bad gas also went to some stations in Illinois and Milwaukee.

According to the Palatine Police Department, 21-year-old Corey Frazier of Palatine was the aggressor in the physical altercation that resulted in his death on Sunday Aug. 19. Before Frazier suffered multiple stab wounds, the 21-year-old severely beat the suspect. Witnesses told police Frazier repeatedly punched the 22-year-old man in the head. 

the couple kept in their garage for years. The Windsor Road couple was cited in June by the Highland Park Police after the city's no-kill animal shelter Tails of Hope removed 21 Persian cats from a garage that had no ventilation, no light and only one litter box.

Gov. Pat Quinn joined Illinois Muslims celebrating the end of the month-long Ramadan holiday Sunday in a ceremony in suburban Bridgeview. The governor joined roughly 15,000 Muslim Illinoisans in prayer at Toyota Park Sunday morning, and spoke out against recent attacks against Islamic institutions in the area. He also commemorated the post-Ramadan holiday Eid by signing a religious tolerance bill that requires universities to provide alternate assignments to students who miss work or exams to observe holidays, 

The book turned out to be a rare Nazi artifact titled 1938-1941: Vier Jahre, Hermann-Göring-Werke. The book describes a four-year Nazi economic plan for a steel-producing industrial site in the town of Salzgitter, Germany, during World War II. According to the library, the book was given away to workers at the steel mill as a Christmas gift.

I really did have exactly the same problem after I bought gas at the Shell on Dundee Road next to 53 a couple of months ago. I filled up drove to soccer and it was fine. Left soccer and it started having problems. I recognized the symptoms because I had this same problem when I bought gas at a mobile station years ago. I had it fixed and told my husband not to use that gas station again but he did anyway. Car started having the same problem again almost immediately after filling up. I was told to use Shell because it has cleaners in it and I have been for years. I went to this Shell because it was cheaper than the other ones. Has anyone else had a problem with their car after filling up there? *
