Hope someone can answer as to what may be wrong.I had traveled about 60
miles and had the air on high.I had put gas in the van about 11 miles
before this happened.I stopped at a drive in and let the motor idle. While
I was waiting, I saw the engine lite and found that the car had stopped
running. I started it again but it was missing so bad it went dead. When
the water was checked it was full and the ac fans were running.
I thought it must have somthing to do with the heat so I left it and
returned about 2 hours later
to get important papers from the car. The Van started and had no missing
or any trouble with it so I drove home.I was told it could be the gas and
went to get somthing to get water out of gas. I am afraid to drive it
thinking I might break down
or it do the same thing and be in an unsafe place.
I am a Female and never had to worry about a safe way to travel before.
Any advise would be a big help. Thanks so much
You cant drive with a constant worry... you should have a cell phone.
No matter WHAT you drive you may have a one-time occurrence like that.
Use the drygas product and from now on;
ONLY BUY FUEL AT HIGH VOLUME HIGH PROFILE "Branded" STATIONS.
That is.,..this does NOT mean 'national name-brand' (low-volume-name-brand
gas MAY be contaminated, too) means the brand has a lot of stations in the
area and a lot of customers.
Where I live, Speedway is the brand of choice. If they ever had a fuel
problem, it would affect MANY people and they would have to own-up.
