Published April 25, 2018

Rumble West Palm Beach says the number of police cars that had to be pulled off the streets due to engine failure has risen to 49. City Administrator Jeff Green said at this point they believe a tainted fuel shipment in the middle of March is to blame. All of those cars had traces of biodiesel in their tanks, which are meant for unleaded only.
