    Thanks heaps I had a feeling it would just need a good cleanout and let some clean deisel run through it till it settles back in.

    So looks like the mechanic might miss out on the estimated $8000 he quoted her.

    Regards

    John

The motor is probably ok,empty the fuel tank, change the fuel filters,and drain the fuel lines.Engine may need to be run several miles before feeling normal.

Can 94 jetta run on leaded or unleaded petrol


It is best to run this engine on unleaded petrol. A high grade unleaded will give you extra performance and cause no damage. Leaded fuel was designed for cars made in the 60's to 80's that had used softer materials in their cylinder heads, leaded fuel pro-longed cylinder head life and reduced pre-ignition. Unleaded fuels are a cleaner, safer fuel to use.

What petrol should i use in my 1989 citi sport golf? Lead replacement or unleaded fuel? Thanks


Unleaded is recommended for this car but it is compatible with LRP since it has no catalytic converter.
I am asuming you are in South Africa? Have a look at the NAAMSA fuel compatibility database.

I mistakenly put a regular gas in it when its an UNLEADED FUEL only model an automatic 1994 geo tracker


Hi!!
At the pump, when it says Regular, it means Regular Unleaded Gasoline, the one that says Super, is Super Unleaded Gasoline, the only difference between the two is the octane rating. Both will work just fine on your vehicle.
Good Day! Don't forget to rate this post!!

I just bought it and need to no which gas is best for it out of the three types. and if i put regular gas in, will that break it!


when you open the gas flap to put gas in it should say "unleaded fuel only" or " premium unleaded fuel only". If it says premium only use premium. If it just says unleaded then you can use normal unleaded gas. But some stations have a lower grade unleaded gas. Use 88 octane or better.
