    winter blended cr@& fuel

    alright, so my fueling options are already limited to 91 octane 5-15%(I try really hard to avoid the 15%)ethanol as is. then winter comes along and the blended fuel hits. bam, sucky milage, idle isn't so great and power is meh. slight stumble at light throttle and wastegate boost levels as im driving on really bad icy roads. has anyone had luck with bottled remedies to bring the fuel's potential up a bit? running a bottle of plain cheap octane boost did little(considering stabil)

    when you ask a manager at a decent gas station what the winter blend fuel actually is on the 91 pump, and they give you the wth you talking bout? look...its time to ask(and fuel)somewhere else. i worked at two stations, and we had to post our blend ratios for each fuel and diesel.
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    Where did he go??

    It isn't just the gas. It's the colder weather as well. Lower IAT's will cause a change in fueling and timing. Pretty much why I tune my personal vehicle for all four seasons. But you can pick up some toluene at your local hardware store and add about a cup to a tank full for a nice octane bump fuelsystem cleaning.
