NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - State officials say they reached a $137,000 settlement with three companies over the sale of aviation fuel that was pumped into motor vehicles at six New Jersey gas stations.

Consumer Affairs officials say the fuel damages catalytic converters and oxygen sensors.

The settlement includes $85,000 from Freehold-based Pasmel Property, which owns the six gas stations. It also includes $32,000 from Pittsgrove-based fuel transporter Lee Transport, and $20,000 from Brooklyn-based Zephyr Oil.

There is a provision for more than $7,500 in restitution for consumers who demonstrated that their vehicles were damaged, or who paid to have the fuel removed from their vehicles.

It was sold to motorists at the Daninka station in North Plainfield; Express Fuel in Trenton; Keyport Delta; and Lukoils in Manasquan, Lawrenceville and Scotch Plains.
