YUBA CITY, CA (KTXL/CNN) - A fuel mix-up at a Yuba City, CA, gas station could cost several drivers hundreds of dollars in repairs.

A fuel delivery driver accidentally put diesel and premium fuel in the wrong tanks.

About a dozen customers who went to the pumps afterward say their cars were affected.

Wesley Yee, a local mechanic, said the vehicles lost functionality.

"It runs kind of rough and then it dies, sputters and dies," Yee explained.

Damages are estimated to cost between $500 and $800 per car.

The gas station owner said he's reaching out to the delivery company so the drivers can get compensated.

The incident is under investigation.
