BOTLO (Be On The Look Out) - Dorian car problems
My first one in a while, many more expected... Customer had dutifully filled his fuel tank as Hurricane Dorian was approaching last week. It hadn't been driven much (folks hunkered down). Today it's got a P0300 and the misfire counters per cylinder count up regularly on all cylinders.
The fuel tank has about 1/3 water, the rest gas.
If he filled-up before the storm why did the gas have water in it?
Panic buying that the public did virtually drained every gas station's tanks. It's possible that 1). during refueling rainwater got in the station's tanks, 2). the customer left his gas cap off while going inside to pay during a torrential downpour or 3). the tanker was transporting a substantial amount of expensive water that was introduced to the gas station ( <:-0 ).
Those stickies staying right in place reminds me of all the media last year, with people playing at the beach, directly behind the news reporter (talking about "the big storm"). :-) No place to go here, so we have never had panic buying at the gas station. Thanks man.
