Nothin Wrong with the fuel, I have gone thru over 12 gallons..stop breaking your engines in on the living room table, Its ok to go outside? Or do the neihbors not take kindly to ya? I hope you get you engine back, that should be automatic, I think if Torco thinks it was there fuel that grenaded your Mill, they will make it right, But IMO (In Monkey's Opinion) If you broke it in that way...to bad, I am not a break in Nazi, But mine are way better and they last longer, I average 10 galons a mill, 2 tanks, on the box, one on the ground, next tune is on race day, Run it like ya stole it! If somthin goes KaPlam...Well, the Mill Was probably not good to start with. I would not blame the fuel, I would talk to the Mill manufactures, perhaps they may warrenty it? Unless you deviated from their reccomended Break in proceedure? Then you might just be S.O.L? I often vary from the beaten path, sometimes I am right, sometimes I am wrong, decisions are a risk, you make em, you live with them....

had a 1 gallon old vspec go south within 2 minutes of switching to Torco... Talked to steven about it privately as not to stir the pot and he was happy to replace it, I just needed to send in the motor, so I did. He acknowledged he received it and that he had ordered a vspec to replace mine and also a few plus 4's for a few other people that had the same issue. Now, from the sounds of it Steven is no longer at Torco but tells them that he took care of my problem. And Torco pretty much tells me I am SOL....

Live and learn I guess, next time I will make it public.

that sucks. i think the company is still responsible for what has happened. that steven guy was a torco employee and respresented torco at the time of the incident, therefore, torco is responsible for what has occurred. just cause the employee quits, it doesn't mean they're off the hook. that's how it is with any company. if you bought a dell computer that broke and spoke to a tech support guy saying "hey we'll replace it" then he quits the next day, does that mean dell no longer has to replace your computer? .. umm no. still entitled to that replacement.
