I think it is the stp octane that is making your exhaust smell. It is a different chemical besides gas going through the system. I think after you do the treatment once you should expect good gas mileage from your bike without another treatment. Isn't it made to clean the system. You don't need it every fill up do you? If you do, I don't think it's work the extra gallon of mileage it it? Wouldn't that equal like $10 per gallon for the stp octane booster, instead of the $4 per gallon we pay at the pump? Also is the stp made for bikes? Hopefully you aren't ruining something in your bike using it.

Why poor fuel mileage and hard starting


Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Although, it could be bad o2 sensors. If the computer sees that the o2 sensors are showing lean then it will increase fuel flow to try to even out, which causes it to burn more gas.

I accidently put super unleaded gas.on my VW beetle 2002


That is not a problem it is actually recommended that you use premium 93-94 Octane fuel, if you put turbo blue (115) in it that would be a problem but 93-94 octane is the VW recommended fuel type.

2001 honda shadow what kind if fuel should i use


Regular unleaded should work well in your motorcycle; it may actually start and run better with regular than with premium gasoline.

The big wild card, however, is the amount of ethanol in the gas you are buying. Your bike would definitely run best on "pure" gasoline that contains little or no ethanol, but that's getting harder and harder to find. Personally, I have noticed that my bikes have started harder and run worse as the ethanol content in gasoline has increased. That's one reason I actually recommend staying away from premium, which sometimes has more ethanol in it than regular (it raises octane). I prefer to keep my bikes stock, rather than messing with the carb jets to compensate for the different performance curve of ethanol-blend gas.

If it's available in your area, you might try running your bike with some Cam2 racing gasoline to see if that makes a difference. You don't need the extra octane in that fuel, and some varieties of that fuel may still contain lead (a no-no for your engine), but it doesn't contain ethanol, as far as I know. Double-check with whoever is selling this fuel in your area to make sure you're getting the unleaded stuff. If you find that your bike runs well with this fuel, you might consider blending a bit of it with pump gas on going-forward basis.

2004 Jetta sedan, 1.8 TDI, about 38000 miles, manual transmission. Always use premium gas (91 octane or above) from name-brand stations. Last serviced in Oct 2010 -- oil change, new tires, new brakes...


You use premium gas in a TDI? Run that by me again? A TDI is a diesel engine car. What don't I understand here? I'm not being a smart __s but this just does not make sense. If you have put gasoline in a TDI, DO NOT DRIVE IT. Tow it to a dealer.

My bike is cutting out its got 5700 miles on it is it the plugs maybe? is there a fuel filter on it tho its injection. some times when im trying to take of it dies. i goose it and it doesnt do anything it...


yes theres a fuel filter.
doubt its the plugs.
you dont need octane booster or even anything above 89 octane.
chances are you have a problem with the ignition coil(s).

2002 passat v6 fsi engine. 90000miles..recently i changed air filter, cabin air filter, fuel filter, sythelic engine oil..it ran good. then one day i put gumont fuel line cleaner with full premium gasoline...


This vehicle is due for a Fuel pump.

Mixing and using to many of these Gas treatment is not a good thing, i prefer putting in 1/2 of the bottle during a fill up and only after 3k or every 6 months.

Now what to do:

You need to have this one serviced.

*** If you plan to just keep driving try refilling it at a 1/2 tank to see if this will dilute all the additives you have in the tank and clear things up.

Hope this tip helps.

Unknown problems with my xb9r


I am having some problems with my 2003 xb9r. It has race ecm exhaust and K&N and about 5500 miles on it. The problem is i am loosing low end power and loud backfire in airbox when down shifting exhust backfires when i let off the throttle. I just put in new spark plugs and changed all the oil and it didnt help. It seems it might be running too rich but i thought the ecm would fix it on its own. I was wondering if maybe i had to get it remapped or something... any ideas?Try to check the muffler packing.,,
