They didn't replace fuel filter. All was said was that I had a half tank of water, so they drained it out and it started back working again

When my son was about 5 years old he decided to 'fill her up' ... with the garden hose. My (now ex wife) pulled the hose out and proceeded to drive away. She got less than 1 block, and $1500 later the car was never the same.

This particular was an Audi that had a secondary fuel pressure pump, run of cam, that operated at 2500 psi. No typo. 2500psi. It had what the mechanic called a fuel distributor, to overcome compression when the injectors didn't release fuel until near TDC

caramelslim_08 I am skeptical about that. Contact the place where you bought the gas and ask if there are any other complaints. The will likely deny that, but it's worth a try. They have insurance, and can also go after wholesaler. See if you can find out who the wholesaler was, and ask them. Again, probably denials all around.
