You just have no idea the depths of my OCD and attn to detail anxiety do you? LOL, jk. I'm looking to just enjoy the damn thing. It's a 'cheap' 'econo car' that I bought during the height of dieselgate and I currently own outright. I plan to responsibly abuse the car, enjoy it, throw the dog in the back, let the upcoming baby spit up on it, etc.Nope, no sarcasm. Just assume they fixed it and drive it as always. Don't look for every little thing that might indicate a problem - those things you would have never even noticed prior to this issue.
You're talking to ME about OCD??????
Driving to my detailer to do the PPF (30 miles on the odometer), I'm thinking "this thing is almost pinging, what have I bought? Why did I buy sight unseen" etc. On the way back it dawned on me "I bought the car in Albuquerque, ABQ has 85 octane as normal gas. The dealer filled the car with the cheapest swill which is probably really 83/84 octane" and topping the tank off with 93 seems to have resolved that.
Yes, ABQ is what 5500 ft? 85 is fine for cars that use "minimum 87" due to the higher altitude, but I'm near sea level here in NoVA.Is ABQ elevated? It is BEYOND me how companies can sell 85 octane fuel legally in America when every modern car’s cap literally says MINIMUM OCTANE 87
HahahahahahahaI used to love driving from sea level (OC) to Mammoth during my time in California. A bag of chips would puff right up. Also, with my APR boost gauge to see the noticeable air density differences right in front of you was fun. On the way down my yeti water bottle would get some awesome suction after opening it back up. SCIENCE.
