A federal judge gave final approval to a $7 million class-action lawsuit surrounding tainted BP gas.

BP Products North America, Inc. recalled the contaminated gas in August 2012 after it ended up at more than 575 retail outlets in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Ohio. The settlement includes damages, costs and fees for drivers who bought the gas, which had higher than normal levels of polymeric residue that damaged some vehicles.

Payouts for drivers will range between $50 for the cost of the gas to $1,500 to cover repairs.

Class counsel included attorneys from Cohen & Malad, LLP and Price Waicukauski & Riley, LLC of Indianapolis.

The gasoline originated from the Whiting Plant. More information about the settlement and claim submission can be found at www.pricefuelsettlement.com or by calling the Claims Hotline at 1-800-769-5703.
