normal tank mileage 360-380. bought some bad gas and got 245 miles
that tank. car running bad. white smoke coming out of exhaust. idle
drops drastically when stopped with foot on break. hesitation when
touch gas pedal. got new tank of gas (high octane) went 51 miles on 6
gallons of gas. changed plugs and oil. noticed gas smell in oil.
inside car smells of unburnt fuel when running. think possible
injector stuck but not sure how to check. please advise any info.
The latest mantra from the media preaches that all gasoline comes from the
same storage tank farm / barge no matter what brand you buy, only difference
being a speck of additives thrown in the underground tanks.
So what does citgo have to do with it ??
I'm curious to hear what you have to say since I have a 95 T-Bird LX 4.6
that seemed to choke on a bad tank of Citgo gas about 6 months ago.
That is technically correct.. but the KEY is those additives. And the
condition of those tanks.
And it's rubbish; anyone who's been victimized by Sohio/Standard/BP in
the midwest .. until they recently changed their ways.. knows different -
Unless you're a socialist, you should be avoiding Citgo on principle, as
it's run by Chavez in Venezuela.
But on the practical side, the ONLY TIME I ever had Catalytics Curl up in
a molten ball was immediately after a desperation fillup at a mom/pop
I only use Speedway otherwise... and by the way NEVER have to add
And, yes, Jeff, that is only anecdotal.
I fully recommend using -LOCALLY- high volume brand from high volume
stations... if that happens to be Speedway, you cant go wrong.
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
