SOURCE: wrong fuel in car

Hi, My name is Tom and I need to get some info on your car. Make,year,engine type, how long it has been stored, was there any fuel in the car from before, was the old fuel drained, does the engine call for the good old leaded type? What is it that you think that you may have ruined? Tom.

SOURCE: by accident put the wrong fuel in tank

There is a bolt under the gas tank. You will need to go under your car to get to it. Once you loosen this bolt the fuel will drain out there. This is called a fuel dump hole, or a flush hole. It is located directly under the gas tank on the tank itself.

Another method, is

1.) remove the hose that is connected to your fuel filter. Its the one that's leads from your gas tank to your filter.

2.) place the end on this hose into a bottle or container

3.) turn on the ignition. The pump will run, pumping the fuel from the tank to the container.

There will still be some fuel in the filter as well as the engine. the fuel from the filter can be drained out , The one in the system will have to be burned out while the car is running after you put the right fuel in.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump located on a 1989 hyundai

Turn the car on and listen for a sound resembling an electric motor running, which should stop after just a few seconds of having the key turned to acc (pre ignition) If nothing then you will have to drop the gas tank belts and pull the pump from the upper assymbly. I believe it is threaded normally and the fuel hoses can be removed with the ends taped to keep dust and dirt from making its way into your fuel system.
Check O'Reilys or Autozone for the pump



GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!

SOURCE: what fuel is recommended?

The engine comes from japan, a daft statement but the engine was designed to run on unleaded petrol in japan and when they came to England we still ran fully leaded petrol the engine is quite happy on ether fuel the motor may be unsettled for a while but will stablise if you change over from one to the other.

Can someone please tell me what petrol I should put in my pioneer torro 125 cc please


Hi, Jill excellent question, before I begin let me address motorcycles with valves and seats designed to run on leaded fuel issue, you can run unleaded fuel without a lead additive with no problem just replace the valves and seats with ones designed for unleaded fuel the next time you need a top end overhaul. In extremely rare cases some higher compression engines will ping using the highest octane graded unleaded fuel available in these cases the use of a lead additive or aviation fuel is recommended. Octane rating is a measure of a fuel's ability to resist 'knock'. The octane requirement of an engine varies with compression ratio, geometrical and mechanical considerations and operating conditions. The higher the octane number the greater the fuel's resistance to knocking or pinging during combustion.
The recommended octane rating for most motorcycles is usually octane 87, but be sure to check your bike's owner's manual. Ordinarily, your motorcycle will not benefit from using an octane higher than recommended in the owner's manual. However, some motorcycle models have high-compression engines and electronic controls, which are designed to benefit from the greater power output and improved fuel economy of high-octane fuel. Since octane requirements can vary with operating and environmental conditions, your bike may need a higher octane fuel than recommended to prevent knocking.
Bottom line, use the lowest grade octane that gives you acceptable performance without knocking or pinging.

I put unleaded instead of regular gas in my 1999 Plymouth Neon and now the engine sounds like a stock car and extremely loud...is it the gas oris something wrong with the engine?


You can't put unleaded into a 1999 vehicle... you must have things confused. Some vehicles prefer high octane gasoline instead of regular. Using the wrong one (containing 10% ethanol can overheat and ruin the inside of some engines) Dual fuel engines can handle the ethanol.

I put the wrong octane in my '08 wrx sti


all impreza recommends high ROM.
although 99ron or 100ron is recommended, some uses unleaded for non-turbo and of course notice a sligth defference in performance using high ROM fuel.
in your case is the reverse, means does't need to drain for a change.

I accidently put super unleaded gas.on my VW beetle 2002


That is not a problem it is actually recommended that you use premium 93-94 Octane fuel, if you put turbo blue (115) in it that would be a problem but 93-94 octane is the VW recommended fuel type.
