Re: Fwd: Re: Smelly cats

I've had great luck with Chevron, havne't used anything else.  My
parents used Gulf (no longer available, no wonder) for a while in their
4000, got clogged injectors.  When they started using Chevron in about
'87 they had no problems either.
For a short while I had some sulfurous stench with the Chevron but it
went away shortly after the station in my neighborhood got new tanks.

said, 'Gee, I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't
cold enough. Let's go west.' "
