95 suburban is choking out and dying after using octane boost
I thoughtlessly put ocatane booster and also a cleaner in the gas (we use ethanol) we drove a long trip with no problem, After it sat for a day, it would not stay started. Its like its getting no gas. I am thinking it couldnt handle the octane, so i put regular gas in and its worse, now cant even keep it started to move it. ALso, where is the fuel filter located to check it? is it internal? After reading, seems like this is a common problem with this model except it ran perfectly with no warnings, so I am thinking it has to do with junk in the tank. Help!

hange your fuel from low grade to premium. Your car is designed to use the higher octane gas. For the time being put some octane boost into your tank to boost the low grade fuel that is in there at this time and the fill the tank up with the premium gasoline, using some fuel additive to clean your injectors and lines from the **** gas you had used in it. I had the very same issue with my Mitsubitshi eclipse, and it cleared up once i did these things I am describing to you .

Are you sure of the ratio? Here in the states E-85 means 85% Ethanol and 15% gasoline.
If that is the case, and your mix is 95% Ethanol You will have hard start when cold, less power and the check engine light will stay on. I have been running E-85 on my gasoline vehicles here for the last 5 years. I have had no other problems.
The higher the better. If your car is made for 93 you can without problem use 95 or 97 but if your car use 95 you soulden use fuel with lowe octane number such as 93 od 91 which you can still found in some countries. In aurope there is no longer fuel lower then 95. Higher te octan number better the fuel is, it burns faster cleaner and make more energie and can be more compressed. My recomendation is 95 because it is most common but you can use 97 as well!!!
It could be but sounds like some bad gas, try using some octane boost because the gas you got might not have enough octane in it to run your car. So try using Octane boost and no its not the same as a gas treatment. gas treatment just cleans your lines and intake. Octane boost puts more octane in your fuel which is needed to run the car properly so try that.
The best fuel you can use on your vehicle is any octane that contains at max 10% ethanol.
Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel additive made by fermenting and distilling crops that have been broken down into simple sugars.
A 10% blend of ethanol and gasoline will
not harm any engine or fuel system component. However, the ethanol has
a cleaning effect that will remove rust and other junk from the fuel
system. This necessitates frequent fuel filter changes until the fuel
system is cleaned out.
Most gas stations in our area are set like so:
87 octane (Up to 10% ethanol)
89 octane (Up to 5% ethanol)
91 octane (No ethanol)
Now we do not have 93 or 95 octane available to us here, so I am currently unsure as to what is in 95 octane fuels. In my opinion, I would use 91 octane (No ethanol) for the majority, while adding 87 or 89 octane (5-10% ethanol) ever so often to clean the lines.
I hope this helps you out,
Also if you would not mind taking a moment out of your day and rating my solution it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
