How can you tell if you have bad gas in your tank


What are the indications of bad gasoline?
A:

QUICK ANSWER

The symptoms of bad gas involve a lean misfire, which creates a P0300 code in newer cars, engine detonation and pinging, sputtering and stalling. These occur because the bad gas fails to keep the fuel system clean and introduces contaminants that can clog fuel filters, fuel pumps and fuel injectors. In addition, bad gas can have an octane rating lower than advertised, leading to the aforementioned detonation and pinging.

FULL ANSWER

Receiving bad gas from a fueling station is more common than the industry admits. The only cure for fixing bad gas is to drain the fuel tank and fill it with fresh gasoline while cleaning the fuel system in the process. Bad gas can be caused by gasoline suppliers not mixing the required amount of additives in the fuel, causing them to be less effective in preventing deposits and causing fuel varnish to form in the fueling system. Sometimes the tanks, whether at the fueling stations tanks or in the vehicle's own fuel tanks, are contaminated with dirt, corrosion and water. Because no filtration system is absolutely perfect, even with the various filters and stringent EPA requirements in place, these contaminants end up inside the car and may damage it. Gasoline that is lower in octane often occurs because either the supplier or the fueling station intentionally sells regular fuel as higher octane, profiting over the difference in price.

Put bad gas in 2010 colbalt,it womt start now. What should i do?


You are going to have to drain the gas tank and motor of all bad gas. The next time you put gas in it buy some gas treatment and some sea foam and that should clear out the bad gas.

sounds like bad gas

disable the fuel pump and spray carb cleaner into the throttle body

assuming the car starts then you have confirmed the bad gas theory

most bad gas is the result of water so buy 2-4 bottles of "Gas Dry" and see if that helps

otherwise you will have to get the tank drained and refuel with good gas

I filled up my 2002 Mazda MPV yesterday at Walmart, Manning


Could be bad gas, water in the gas? Run the tank down to about 1/4 and put gas from somewhere else in it. Maybe higher octane for one tank full. Maybe put an additive in with it. If it clears up, then it was the gas.

97 honda civic wont start.


If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.
