Ahh, touche. (hey, did I use that right as it's not really an argument :D ) I knew that but it slipped my mind, plus I prefer the Raw instead as people seem to understand it better. I have heard it both ways so it really wasn't my twist. :o I guess I can take the credit. Did I tell you about that time I invented the internet..............

Wazabi Owner, RUG is more commonly Regular octane, Unleaded Gasoline, but I like your twist on the acronym. And best of success to you, too.

It was the incongruous mental image of "unused gas" that grabbed my attention.

With VE pumps timing depends on internal pressure, which depends on viscosity. :thumbup: According to my Bentley up to 5% gasoline is o.k. but I really wouldn't push my luck. Other things to increase the viscosity of the fuel such as paraffin wax and non-detergent motor oil can also help. Ideally though, the best thing to do is just adjust the internal ump pressure to what it should be running on whatever fuel ya happen to be running on. That being said, veggie oil doesn't spray very well out of the injectors, so I would keep an eye on 'em.

I've normally known it as "bad gas" but if I went around asking people if they had bad gas I'd probably get my butt kicked. :p "Old gas" works too I suppose.

Regular octane Unleaded Gasoline doesn't seem to scream to me that it isn't bad unusable gas.
