Chevron (CVX) says it halted sales last week of a bad batch of premium and mid-grade gasoline at stations around Houston, and will compensate customers who say their cars were damaged.

~500 stations were initially included in the sales halt as a precaution, but CVX has since allowed ~375 stations to resume sales.

CVX says the gasoline came from a terminal at Galena Park, Tex., where additives are blended with the fuel.
