experience with this is absoulutly correct. We were at a baseball tournament and
we needed gas so we stopped even though the tanker was filling up the gas
station and we didn’t make it out of the parking lot. It plugged up my fuel

hundred dollars and labor was free as my husband did it but very expensive
lesson on my part.
