Re: Fw: Exhaust
Several of you have responded to my posting regarding the rotten egg smell
(which I suspected was secondary to a suphar product and a result of the
catalytic converter). Uniformly you have all suggested that I change to a
higher octane or different station. Here's the scoop regarding this . . .
I do not use the same stations routinely. I rely on Amoco, Marathon, and Sunoco
for my gas. The Octane ratings used in my care are exclusively HIGHER than
93. I have also used Chevron with Techron x 2 over the past 2K miles.
Any new thoughts?
