    I am now 99% sure my truck has been full of bad gas. I've had a few posts on here about my 99' Ram 1500 misfiring and running rough. I have had two shops go through that truck top to bottom and so have I and could not figure out what was wrong with it. Recently it has been getting better and went about a week without missing. I finally started thinking back and realized the week it ran fine I had filled it up at Valero. I always get gas from the same Speedway in all of my vehicles and three of them have been having fuel related issues lately. I didn't start putting two and two together until I filled it up at Speedway today and it started missing the second I pulled out. I'm now sure it has to be bad gas. Anyone else had problems with Speedway gas?

    I had a Dakota that did this all the time and i knew of several other trucks that came into the dealer for this issue. I always dumped 2-3 bottle of drygas in the tank and it would be good for a couple months and then back to running like crap. I told the customers to do the same or we would have to drop the tank and clean it. They opted for the drygas and never complained again.
