So I've finally found out why my car is using tons of gas and running like crap.
I found out someone pissed in my gas tank. After I'm done beating the crap out of them with an e34 camshaft, what can I do to get my car running properly again?
If it matters, my car was almost out of gas when this happened, I had to raise the compression with oil in the spark plugs and add a few gallons of gas to get it started. I figured the car was just flooded, but now that I know what it was, how can I get the car back to running normal? Piles of octane boost, fuel injector cleaner and drygas? Or is there something more I need to do?
Octane booster sounds like a good idea. Also, try to keep your gas tank as close to topped off as possible with the highest octane gas you can get. You can always just siphon out the gas/urine mix (gross, I know) and fill it up with good gas. You pretty much need the water and other impurities to be flushed out. In my opinion, the best way to get that done quickly is to extract the contents of the tank.
If you have an E28 or E34 there should be a plug in the bottom of the tank you can take out and drain everything out. If you have an E39 take out the fuel pump and use a hand pump to remove as much as you can from the tank.
Apparently he did this for no fucking apparent reason. Later in the week he decided it would be a great idea to beat up his girlfriend. I already broke three of his ribs and his nose. And now that I found this out I'm paying him another visit. This time he's getting hurt.
Also in the spirt of one upping him, my buddy is stopping over with a tube of valve grinding compound in order to return the favor. We'll see how long his motor lasts with a tube of that floating around in the oil.
Anyway, I'm guessing it's just the fact that my car isn't a piece of shit that has him pissed. He drives a 91 Nissan Sentra with heavy front end damage thanks to him being an ass and driving way too fast. He can't even turn the wheel lock to lock on the thing because he bent the whole front end up so badly. This is after he wrecked his dad's honda running from a jersey state cop while drunk. He pretty much managed to fuck his entire life up in 24 hours. The kid used to be one of my best friends. I've known him since I was 7 years old. When I saw him go to hit his girlfriend though, all that dissapeared. He's a fucking scumbag and I have no pity for him at all.
I'm sure you can just use a bottle of water remover or even a bottle of rubbing alcohol. They displace water and make it run through the system. The rubbing alcohol was recommended by my fuel systems teacher when I went to an automotive technical school. He told us not to waste our money on those water removers and that it's perfectly fine.
heh drain the tank if you can as much as possible then replace the fuel filter (alot o piss will get trapped in there thats not in the tank) and fill it up with the highest octane you can find and id run a bottle of seafoam through your car also... (not all at once though... that shit is pretty strong stuff)
How much piss are we talking? If it's not alot, just filling your tank should flush it thru. If u disperse the average persons amount of piss in 16 gallons of gas, it shouldn't effect it too much. The smartest option would be to siphon out as much as u can and run seafoam thru it. Replacing the fuel filter wouldn't be a bad idea either, plus it's only twenty bucks.
As far as your roommate goes, i'm sorry that he's a bitch. Only bitches hit girls. If you ever want help beating him, give send me a message on here and i'll be there
