...gas without MTBE!! Has anyone noticed any differences with the new formulation of CA gas? I filled up Saturday and have been through half a tank and have been choking on fumes ever since. I did a search on "Gas Fumes" and found a recent thread and most roads seem to lead to the gas cap! I bet I didn't get mine on all the way or something.
Anyone had to re-tune/de-tune to run the stuff?? Any other problems??
I ran a half tank through my car this weekend and could not tell any difference. The next tank full may be a better tank to judge from though since I usually fill up when it gets to about 3/8 left. So I was really only running 5/8 of a tank of the new stuff. If I let it go to 3/8ths again and fill up, I'll be running (where's my slide rule?) about 7/8ths new formula.
As for the gas smell, did you still smell it when you were not in the car? You probably dumped gas on your shoes.
