Supermarkets selling 'watered down fuel!'

Dunno if anybody has seen the news today but there's been a lot about fuel outlets selling watered down fuel with ethanol. My mate rang me up with the information about his Motor Control System failing and it being traced to the Lambda sensor... Guess what happened to mine the very same evening? Motor Control System Failure! Anybody else had this problem recently. Seems rather too close together to be coincidence, I bought my fuel from Esso this morning and so far only Supermarkets (Somerfield and Tesco so far) have been implicated in this scam so i'm really not sure.

If this really is down to the outlets, i.e. added AFTER the fuel companies have delivered to them, then this surely must be illegal?!

Any ideas?
