I'd like to think that,but this would be the first time in my life it's ever happenend.I've gotten crap gas that was below the specified octane level before,thank god for it being an older hunk of crap car.so what drain the entire tank and fill it back up?my old man thought I had water in the tank,but how would I get 30 plus Miles of no trouble at all?wondering if the fuel pump is bad at this point,but it starts and idles fine

Put a Bottle of Sea Foam Fuel treatment in the tank and take it out for a ride.

If it is water then MDR WaterZorb or E Zorb will take the water out.

Good luck and Keep us posted.

It's getting progressively better,I'll get some sea foam and I guess some injector cleaner too,and put some higher octane fuel in it as well once it drops further.haven't drove it much maybe 50 miles

The Sea foam is also a Injector cleaner, sounds like some water or the E10 had started to phase separate and you filled your tank at just the wrong time.

Keep driving . Have a great Holiday.

keep us in the loop.
