You know what's funny, below is the clip I've saved in my own personal 
archive since you wrote it::

 think I was paying attention old buddy!  What I've been doing lately is 
running about a quart and a half of Canola to a tankful, starts and runs better 
and noticably smoother  but unfortunately no appreciable gains in mileage, 
maybe just a tiny smidgin.  It is comforting knowing that with the additional 
lubricity, the engine should last longer as well.    Doug Ferguson

Well Ferguson  -- some time back you said that you were interested in those AD-100
I knew you paid attention --- just wanted to make sure that you understood that the timing mechanism
was the problem --- causing even a perfectly TIMED  Rabbit to smoke and lack power.

Later under Hillbilly TUNING   it will be explained how a what DIY guy can do about the timing



PS:  Canola makes a lot of difference ?   --it may mean the pump is wearing.
