Mystery!!!!- Refueled, engine dies after getting gas, other issues, please help

I don't know where to start this thread.
I need help, Advice, or any info possible.
What has happened to my Touareg could possibly happen to any of us.


My touareg was performing perfectly.
I went grocery shopping for my grandmother, and after delivering her food, hanging out, and later leaving her house,

I decided to refuel after the chime from the dash, I noticed I had 3/16th's of tank.


I filled up to "full" with premium gas. The Touareg started, ran for 10 seconds, then died. (I tried it again and again). (...and again to start it, 15+ times).

I feel how "alone" my situation is.
Thank You.

I thought it would be water in the station's system.

one way to detect fuel pump issue is you have to shut all doors and lock the car as you normally do, wait for a bit and then open drivers door, you have to hear buzzing noise, if you dont hear anything its more likely your left side fuel pump have failed, try it, its only my guessing and it does not mean that its 100% the problem

Hey Thanks again for being present. I will read the link right after I post something.
(I'm desperate).

After arguing with the Gas Station manager about X, Y and Z it turns out that I'm on my own unless they decide to contact me later and repair/ replace my Touareg. At the advice of a lawyer, I took it to the nearest expert on german vehicles.

dot dot dot !

It just so happens that I manage a major (80,000 square foot) building that exxon rents from us. at their largest hub in the USA. They will not like me now.
