Bad gas,fill it up with 89 or 93 oct run a bottle of fuel injection cleaner in gas.sea fome is the best.do this about every 10th fill up,will keep the injectors clean.

OK thanks, all we use is 93 octane in it. Will try the sea fome and see how it works was trying gumout octane booster every 3rd fill up.

octane booster is not worth what you pay for it.it dont up the oct.always use fuel injection cleaner.

Ok. that's great info tried a fuel injection cleaner and so far my gas mileage has improved. Still waiting to try the sea foam though you tube videos has me a little worried that something might go wrong with it.

seafoam is a graet product. use some in your gas tank but if you want the best results pour slowly into your ait intake system while someone is reving the engine ( holding around 1-2.5 rpms). this will get alot of crap out of your engine. make sure you are in a well ventilated area because youll have some dark smoke start coming out of your exhaust (which is normal).
