Welcome to the Information Website for the Price v. BP Products North America Inc. Class Action Settlement
UPDATE: Claims are currently being processed. Settlement Benefit Awards will be provided to qualifying Class Members who submit valid Claim Forms after all claims have been processed and all appeals resolved.
The Settlement Agreement provides you the right to appeal the determination of your claim. For complete instructions on how to appeal your claims determination, please refer to "How do I appeal my claim determination on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
If you purchased gasoline or it was put in your engine at certain Retail Outlets in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin or from one Retail Outlet in Ohio from August 13 through September 7, 2012 and experienced engine performance or drivability issues or had to make repairs, you could be entitled to a cash payment from a Class Action Settlement.
If you previously submitted a claim to BP or to another third party entity, you are still entitled to submit a claim under this Settlement.
This is to notify you of a proposed Class Action Settlement (“Settlement”) involving gasoline produced and placed into distribution by BP Products North America Inc. (“BP”) and sold at certain Retail Outlets in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and at one Retail Outlet in Ohio from August 13 through September 7, 2012.
The Court has given its preliminary approval to the Settlement, and has ordered that Notice of the settlement be provided to the Class. A copy of the Settlement and Notice are available on the Important Documents page of this website.
You may be a member of the Class covered by the proposed Settlement if you were the owner or lessee of a vehicle or other item with a gasoline powered engine that received, or if you purchased, gasoline from certain Retail Outlets from August 13 through September 7, 2012, and you, before September 28, 2012, either: (1) experienced engine performance or drivability issues resulting from the use of the gasoline but did not undertake vehicle repairs or repairs to non-vehicular gasoline powered engines by that date (“Subclass A”); or (2) undertook vehicle repairs or repairs to non-vehicular gasoline powered engines resulting from the use of the gasoline (“Subclass B”).
The Settlement will establish a Claims Process through which qualifying Class Members who submit a Claim Form and all required documentation can seek reimbursement for certain categories of compensation. The categories of compensation available to members of Subclass A and Subclass B are described on the Frequently Asked Questions page of this website and are listed on the Claim Form.
A Court authorized the Notice because you have a right to know about the proposed Settlement of this class action and your options, before the Court decides whether to give final approval to the proposed Settlement. If the Court approves the Settlement Agreement, and after any appeals are resolved, payments will be made to those who qualify and submit a valid claim, including all required documentation. The Notice explains the lawsuit, the Settlement, your legal rights, what benefits may be available, who may be eligible for them, and how to get them.
