As stated in another topic, I don't have a PUMP receipt. Only a generic CC receipt. No octane or gallons/dollars shown.

Only the $20 generic CC reciept. I have no recourse. I'm on my own on this one. But they WILL hear from me.

I would really like to see the station be held responsible for this. I mean come on, it clearly states "Premium Unleaded Fuel only" on the fuel door, if they didn't read/see that, they should be at fault for the engine damage.

EDIT - damn you responded before I clicked submit.

I can't prove what octane is in the car, nor can I prove I didn't fill up SINCE then.

Let'* get off liability and get back to the root of the problem.

This is what happens when you run regular gas in a premium application on a PERFECTLY running motor with zero KR.


Go back to the previous page if you haven't seen the damage.

Well its about ******* time that engine saw some real damage
sorry, had to. Last year at your house Bill, i asked you if you thought she would see 150,000 miles on that engine, you figured no, you figured correctly, mind you at 2000 miles a year...that would of taken a long time.
Nice work, too bad it may only be octane related.

This is why I constantly monitor KR with my Aeroforce gauge.

It makes me so nervous when I'm in the states and can only get 91 or 92 instead of 94 octane that I always run here, I add octane booster to every fill up. Cheap insurance.
I'll have to stock up on octane booster before my next trip.

.....just a thought Bill. You didn't by any chance have your timing control turned up by accident, did you.

No. Timing was in PCM default.

And Matt and Joel know how much KR I had with this setup. The ambient temps when it let go were only about 70.

Why didn't your knock sensor detect and your PCM compensate by lowering timing (KR)

This is VERY unfortunate. And a very good lesson for those who run less than premium in their supercharged engines.

Stupid gas station attendant.

I'd be interested to see the PCM timing tables on the Jet chips. What sort of timing does the stage 2 command @ WOT normally?
