#61 of 69 Multiple cylinder misfires--fuel?
Jun 25, 2008 (5:02 pm)
I bought a new 2006 Crossfire convertible about six months ago and love it. It now has 1991 miles, and it runs great. Last weekend, I added about 10 gal. BP premium fuel at a convenience store while on a trip. I have burned only Shell or BP premium in it since new. I only made it about 1 mile before it started misfiring, losing power, and the "check engine" light started flashing before becoming constantly on. It continued to misfire, so I rode back on a rollback. At the dealer, the engine analyzer showed multiple cylinder misfires. The fuel was drained, the lines purged, new fuel added, and it runs like it's supposed to. The gasoline distributor claims there are no other complaints from other customer, their monitor computer shows no abnormalities, and that they sample checked the fuel after my call finding no contaminates.
Has anyone else heard of such a problem? Any particular types of fuel to avoid?

Exact same thing happened to me on June 11th at a 92 octane BP pump in KCK just off I-70. Tank drained....OK now. Owner of station discovered June 8th shipment was not pure gas....this load had 10% ETOH. He said you can't put ETOH fuel in a station tank unless it has a specific type of water removal system. Supplier agreed to reimburse me for all expenses. But, last night on the nightly news......local....TV....bad gas(BP) delivered to Topeka-Lawrence-Leavenworth Kansas. Uncertain what the real problem is???? Water?

Thanks. I have the fuel that was removed and will be reviewing this further with the BP seller.

According to the TV & newspaper some BP gas stations have had (they admit) diesal fuel contaminating their gasoline. They say Topeka-Lawrence-Fort Leavenworth.
They claim since mine was in KCK....mine was something else....probably water.....????

It seems like that a lot of dealers are offering the same Max care Lifetime and other options at a wide range of prices. Please let me know what's the best possible price for this warranty and which dealer/s are offering it. I am looking for Max. Care Lifetime wrap with $0 deductible. Someone also can advise what's the best one to buy such as 7yr./100,000 miles instead of lifetime. I know that convenience coverage such as rentals, trip interruption etc. disappear after 7yr./100,000m whichever occurs first. Please PM me at aryan_76ymail.com.
#69 of 69 Oil Filter leaking
Apr 10, 2013 (2:04 pm)
After 29,000 miles on my 04 Crossfire, I am having problems with oil leaking between the cap and the housing of the oil filter holder. I have tried various amounts of tightening, but it leaks no matter how much I tighten it. I am afraid to go too tight. Seems like there should be a rubber gasket here, but there is not. The oil filters I buy have an O-ring, but they do not
work. No place for an o-ring, and if I just put in between the cap and housing, the pressure just pushes it out.
