View Full Version : Urgent Q...

12-24-2005, 10:09 AM
Alright, went out of town for a few days to come back and find my car has a full tank of 89oct gas, and was drivin 30mi on 89oct while i had it set on the 93oct setting from Apr.(female mistake) So my Q is could there have been any damaged done while only drivin 30 to 35mi?

Also, my next step is getting out, i can drain the whole tank, or just add 3 gallon of toulene and change my setting to 91oct. Ideas?

I dont think to much damage came come of this.. Just dont drive like a madman.. You could try and pump out the tank a little..

I wouldnt worry about it to much..

relax.. it's not that big of a deal.. even if she was a really crazy driving female, there won't be any damage to your engine. it just didnt run as good as it could..

remember our cars have knock sensors for this very reason.

i'd set it at 91 and just run out the gas and take it easy driving it. as soon as you're close to empty fill up with 93.

have a beer and enjoy xmas with your family. unless, of course, you have a race planned for the weekend.

Get some octane booster.

Just stay out of boost and you should be fine. That shouldn't be too hard with a big turbo.

yeah, just put some octane booster in there...
dont waste gas and pump it out!! how the hell would you dipose of it?

you girl, you're fine

No need to add octane booster or anything else. Just take it easy until you are able to add 93 octane.
