    Hahaha good one

    On a positive note. I think I found a solution to the fuel stutter. Well it's not really a solution. But it seems to work. While starting the car. Clutch in. Break in. As soon as you see the needle start to raise. Release the break. Starts up every time with no hesitation. No idea why or how. But it seems to work for me. Weird. Maybe it's all in my head. Idk. Video demonstration maybe?

    Dunno. Mines not really any slower than an average car. I'd ask your tuner to look into it if it gets worse. Those start up fueling tables are fairly touchy.

    Destruction came a lot sooner than I thought

    Just kidding, kinda. Having some minor issues.

    I think I got some dirty gas and it has been sputtering out really bad. I thought I got all the gas out of it but Its still acting up a bit.

    Solutions???

    Dropped in some injector cleaner today

    Have new spark plugs coming tomorrow

    If that fails, looking at the fuel filters to make sure its not clogged. I also need to double check all the tubes and lines for a possible air leak.

    Car was running amazing and the only thing that changed was the gas I got from a gas station I should never of went to, was on E and wouldn't of made it and didn't think it would hurt it that bad.

    Any ideas?

    ^ This. Sorry, I have no idea how to remedy though.

    I sold a 2005 Toyota Matrix with 215,000 miles on it that ran better than my M-I-L's 2004 Camry that only has 40,000 miles on it. I'm picky about gas, she's picky about gas prices. My car never touched Arco or Valero or anything that isn't a nationwide recognized brand. My secret? Hmmmm....

    Unlikely. Even the "little players" in the gas stations purchase the fuel from the same refineries. It's not like 7/11 has its own refinery. In the end, you're always getting gas from the major refineries.

    Is it possible there may be issues with tank/pump cleanliness, maintenence, contamination and such at an individual station? I know nothing about the industry to be honest, just curious.

    This probably does make the most sense.

    I always get gas at a little US Gas place, that now turned Citgo, and I've been running perfectly fine since I've had it. Even running Wawa 92 has been "fine" (never logged).

    Just filled up from a Sunoco. Heard they are the best around here. Car died out a few times while coming to a stop and then wouldn't start for a few seconds after a couple clicks. Weird.

    Clogged fuel pump/filter?
