At least five motorists called police to Emarat’s Ibn Battuta station where they said they had refuelled in the morning.

Apparently only those who requested the Super variety were affected. It was not immediately clear what caused the breakdowns.

The station manager declined to comment. Emarat could not be reached for a response on Sunday afternoon.

Staff could be seen probing underground fuel storage spaces at around 2.30pm. One motorist said the problems started as early as 8.45am.

There were at least four stalled cars — a Jaguar, Mercedes, Land Cruiser and a minivan — when Gulf News visited the station. Police could be seen taking reports from complainants. More info
