Re: Fwd: Re: Smelly cats

I switched to Amoco and have had NO problems with my fueling since. I had
the infamous 1.3 bar bog that went away shortly after I started using
Amoco. Hasn't returned since. Once in a while, Ill use Mobil (I have a
speedpass) and will notice a slight difference towards the worse. Point
being, my car is very sensitive to gas and quality. I have no problems
with Amoco, so why not and try it.
My gas choices:
1. Amoco
2. Texaco/Exxon

What I advise against:
1. Mobil
2. Merit (a  *CHEAP* company in NY. Might as well pump water in to your
3. BP (same as Mobil)

You could always try 100 octane Cam 2... 8-)
