That's it!!! It's the sandwiches. You break them into little pieces and add them to the gas. Mystery solved!!!

Just curious, did they list how much maintenance and repair work was done during that time period? I would assume with good maintenance and good mechanical repair work, couldn't you keep about any engine running forever?

Main reason I run it is they can’t blame anything on oil if there’s a problem!
Ride on Bro!
