so the other day i was going to work, did a lap around my jeep and saw a puddle behind the gas tank (thought to myself ah **** whats leaking now, or did someone siphon my fuel)
gas was the same as the night before started up fine... get on the highway, sputters and dies. wont start. check the fuel going in (after fuel filter) it looked almost orange. let it sit and it was almost half gas half god knows what. so my thought was to siphon the almost full tank out, let it run dry once or twice and see how it was. and voila it worked (so i thought)
next day same thing happened. messed around with the idle the air/fuel mixture... nothing. check the fuel again and its still orange!!
this thing will not hold an idle it its life depended on it. idle screw is maxed out. but it just backfires/misfires like no tomorrow
