forgive me if this issue was discussed in the "raw gas smell" sticky but I wasn't quite sure..
Ok here's the deal, about 6 months ago I fired up my bugeye and the car puffed black smoke, idled extremely rough, and barely had power both at low rpm's and low amounts of throttle regardless of what gear I was in. I limped a few miles home and didn't drive the car until the next day. It ran fine, as if it never happened which left me quite puzzled.
I didn't have any other issues with it until this past february. On a cold start, it showed the same symptoms once again. Ever since then it's progressively happened more and more over the past few months. Even more puzzling, I was on a road trip recently (bout 500 miles) and was cruising down the highway when all of a sudden I noticed that the car started to studder and lose power. My boost levels went up about 5lbs also. I pulled into a gas station and noticed the same symptoms that I had dealt with before...stuck in the middle of nowhere..I had no choice (work two jobs) but to limp home on the highway...getting 11-12 mpg...no joke...I pulled the codes on my access port and the car is throwing both "bank 1 too rich" AND "bank 1 too lean"
This is not only costing me ridiculous amounts of gas money (91 oct is $3.90+ around here) but I can only imagine what it's doing to my vehicle..PLEASE HELP
