Default Vehicle shutdown 3 times in past 2 weeks

I have a 2017 Nissan Rouge I bought from Nissan 2 months ago and in the past 2 weeks, has shutdown randomly 3 different times. I took it into Nissan, they checked the data from the system, and found cylinders 1 and 3 misfired. They checked the spark plugs and found them to be burnt.

They told us that we must of got bad gas and it caused us to get an disproportionate amount if fuel causing the spark plugs to be burnt. Since this problem isnt a manufacture defect it's not covered in the warranty and they want $788 to replace plugs and flush out fuel.

My question is cant I get this done cheaper somewhere else? Also is flushing out the fuel necessary?? Sorry if I seem stupid but I dont know much about vehicle mechanics and just wanna make sure we arent getting screwed or if there is a better way to go about this then paying close to $1000. Thank you

Of course, you can always take your vehicle somewhere else. Most independent auto repair shops are less expensive than dealers and changing spark plugs and cleaning out a fuel system is within most reputable shop's capabilities. That said, and speaking as a former Nissan tech, what steps did they tech to confirm that the fuel was bad, outside of looking at a couple of spark plugs and making a wild guess? In order to do so, they would need to take a fuel sample. Usually this is done by disconnecting a fuel line and letting the fuel pump dispense gas into a clean, clear glass, jar or beaker or similar item. If there is water in the gas, it will separate and it will be visible in the jar after settling for a few minutes. Dirt would be visible, but that should have been stopped at the fuel pump module filter. If nothing is detected visually, then the gas sample could be sent out to a testing facility like Blackstone Labs to be tested and confirmed that contamination is the issue.
