Dude I thought was only me having problems. I usually put premium in my car. About a week ago I filled up with super 290 worth. Now the car have a bad misfire, it keeps missing missing at low rpm. Planning to drain the tank tomorrow or drain as much as I can and refill with premium and see what goes on.

Wait did you used to put super before all of this ? Why did you change to premium ?

$180 super gas gives APPROXIMATELY 456 kms.
Therefore $1=2.53kms.

$220 premium gas gives APPROXIMATELY 525kms
Therefore $1=$2.38kms.

Doesn’t make a difference what fuel I fill.both gave APPROXIMATELY the same.
Car used-Toyota Axio.

Had the same issue when I filled super at that station last week. Pinging at low rpms in 3rd and 4th gear. I threw in a Schaeffer's neutra in the tank and it ease up.

Does any1 know the parameters used by the relevant bodies to test the fuels sold by Paris Trading.if the new supply of fuel is better,what is it based on ? What where the parameters of the older fuels produced by Petrotrin ???
I saw checks being carried out at Peaks Gas station up in the west.but those checks where to verify the volume of gas paid for was the volume of gas dispensed at the pump.when asked what the checks where about,the supervisor confirmed it’s just a volume check.

These questions are based on the following article

For all anyone knows, there could be a new fuel racket in town. Like that big one where they found a whole network of pipes and selling the subsidized fuel offshore... And nothing happened after.

^^ That problem disappeared with the elimination of subsidies. Now fuel is being smuggled out of Venezuela.

Did an oil change and purged my diesel filter today, usually just purge after 5k and then change it the next 5k
It would appear the new diesel very clean.
