Dodgy Petrol???

Small problem... went out into the sticks for work the other day n had to but normal unleaded in :cry: cars now running like a pig :cry: its had normal unleaded in before, but its never been this unresponsive...

There's no kick hardly at the 3k rev where the turbo kicks in, I'm just hoping it is dodgy petrol n not something else :cry: been running fine till that stuff went in.

Mate did the same but got more trouble than only the turbo. Vavles etc did not get the right stuff, combustion chambers got damaged because the electronics were trying to make up by injection more fuel, which then damaged the turbo...
