Thumbs down Is sugar a good petrol additive?

well like the topic says..

i didnt think so.. but some vandalist mother ****er did...

how this... 2 slashed tyres and a lovely bag of sugar petrol additive on a 2002 nissan patrol..

best yet is that it was in a carpark inside like a hall in kew..

2 months before it was keyed on 5 panels but parked out the front on glenferrie road..

there are some dirty mother****ers in this world.. KARMAAA...


im a bit upset at this point in time..

lucky we didnt get the 1st damage repaired which was estimated at $6000... thank god for insurance.. i think in order to fix the sugar thing.. because it went unnoticed for around 40km.. its well through the system meaning new petrol tank, fuel lines, petrol pump, filter, etc, motor needs to be rebuilt, new injectors, or basically a new motor.. im guessin at least about another $15k?


looks like our 2 and a half year old car is soon to be "erased" (written off)

**** those low scum out there...

cheers,

froma very pissed off me

Re: Is sugar a good petrol additive?

got a rough idea..

i think the person has a big misinterpretation on the way the world works, and it is directed at my mum more than anything.. im not going to get into it..

but as the cops say, unless there is hard evidence, it is ****en useless accusing anything..

just a shame to see such a awesome car go to waste, cost a ****load of money to compensate for because of some.... *thinks really offensive names* silly people...

grrr

Very sad to hear mate, especially on a car that would have otherwise been going strong for 20+ years.

Re: Is sugar a good petrol additive?

Actually. Sugar in the tank will not cause any harm to the engine. The worst you can see of it is the fuel filter getting clogged up. Sugar will not dissolve in Petrol.

Still sucks since you have to get the crap out or keep replacing filters over and over again.
