Bad gas can cause several concerns depending on what's in it. If it's only a liquid type bad gas then it can be purged. If it has debris it's another story. With a liquid only concern, a scan tool can be used to turn on the fuel pump and pump out the fuel by removing the fuel line at the injector rail or fuel filter. The fuel is under pressure so please use safety glasses and relieve the pressure. If the fuel had debris in it, the tank should be removed and completely cleaned, the lines should be purged, the filter replaced and an injector flush performed which requires a special tool. Fill the tank with fresh gas after repairs and monitor engine performance. The fuel injectors have tiny orifices that spray the fuel and are subject to clogging. If there's any reason you can't give four thumbs up, please request more information. Thanks and good luck!

Run a diagnostic to see if you've any bad sensors in the system. If none are found and your check engine light is on, then it's a mechanical problem. Like possibly a bad seal on the gas cap. Little things like that can cause bad fuel economy.

2001 Chevy impala starting but stalls out quickly


Try unplugging the MAF sensor. It is located on the top of the throttle body. It should have a three wire connector. If the car now starts and runs than I would suspect a bad MAF. typically the MAF and the connector are replaced at the same time.

Po455 trouble code


It is a leak in the fuel evap system. This can be caused by a loose gas cap. If the cap is not loose then there is a leak in the system. That model Impala is known for the return solenoid going bad. It is located by the gas filler. They run about $40. I have included a link from a forum that may help you if you are mechanically inclined.

Hi,
You might get some gas treatment for your tank. Sometimes bad gas can cause those symptoms.
I would put the treatment in and let it sit overnight. Hopefully the next morning the car will feel better!
I hope this helps... Good luck!
