Just drove her to Iola Wi on Saturday spent a few hours at the old car show.
Put in some more non ethanol 91 octane and it seems to be back totally where it should be.
Is there a fuel system cleaner or treatment that should be run thru periodically?
Right after I bought the car about 18 months ago, i put a bottle of Techron in it since it had been sitting all winter with the PO. The Techron made it belch out some real black nasties out the exhaust. It was almost like chunks of carbon were "dancing around" inside the turbo.
I was afraid to rev it up and ran most of the first tank very gingerly thru. I'm afraid to do the
Techron thing again but am wondering if there is a recommendation?
Thanks in advance....
