Has anyone else had this issue? What damage can it cause?

I bought a bad batch of 93oct fuel and the whole car started to **** down. Piedmont custom motorsports believes it to be water. We shall see come later in the week!

Hey dude. That's a common issue here in the uk when we buy cheaper petrol. Never known it to cause any damage unless you let run right down to the red. There are a number of products you can buy to remove water from the tank. That's what I currently do with my 96 mustang. I use some of that water removal stuff every 3 months

Haha far from it brother! That would be nice though! With the purchase of the car + parts + labor, now a rebuild it will have 100k in it... The car is going to run like a dream when I get it back thank god... I'm going to try and sell it for 45 if I can. It runs high 9's and is a mint show car. I'm trying to find a 2011 gt500 now..

100k... And because I was able to obtain mine from a friend who NEEDED to sell it ASAP and gave me an offer I couldn't refuse. Unfortunately he is no longer with us.

Dang brother that is crazy! Is that price only to fix the chain? You can add less than half that gain and get a brand new engine.
