BP has paid more than $1.5 million in claims arising from a recall in multiple Midwest states of incorrectly formulated gasoline that damaged some vehicles’ mechanical components. Information BP sent to Indiana’s Attorney General said the company had by September 5th made payments totaling $1.52 million on 2,315 of the 15,965 claims it’s received. BP recalled about 4.7 million gallons of gasoline last month distributed in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Wisconsin. The fuel caused problems that included hard starting, stalling and damage to critical vehicle components. Indiana residents have filed 59 percent of the claims, while Illinois residents have filed 33 percent of them. A spokesman for BP said the company will continue making payments to people who have filed “legitimate claims.”
