Contact your real estate agent ASAP. Check the regulations where you are from, but when I was selling real estate this is something that needed to be mentioned in the selling agreement and if it was not covered, they are out of luck and you get "free" fuel. Check you agreement and call your agent to make sure that this was not mentioned prior to the sale and to double check the regulations where you live.
