Hi guys,

As the title says, my dual fuel el sedan is coughing and jerking when give on WOT....

Basically one morning my el was having trouble starting and to my suprise i was low on fuel so what i did was pretty stupid but anyway, I poured in a bit of fuel from a can which was mixed with 2 stroke oil which I use for my mower!! doh!!

So i re filled several times with 98 octane but even until today its still missing and not pushing as hard as it used to....

The funny thing is the car drives perfectly on gas but not on fuel?? Any thoughts???

My guess was maybe a change of spark plugs? Clean out the injectors? Or even replace leads???

Any help would be appreciated..

thanks..
