ADIMX is correct guys, I am his local Torco rep, and after 1 of my customers had a gallon that was tuning and running different resulting in a problem for him, I do test every gallon of fuel I sell in my own engine prior to selling it to make sure none of the weird ones get sold.

That being said, out of 100 gallons of fuel, that 1 case is the only problem I have found so far. Is it due to the capping issue? Possibly. Did Torco take care of that persons issue? They are trying but that driver hasn't sent in his engine yet. I am good friends with this driver and I know first hand that Steven from Torco has been pro active in insuring that this customer has a good expecrince with Torco fuel. He is currently running Torco from a different case of fuel I swapped him for and he is loving it. Like has been stated before their may have been a capping problem but it has been resolved. Like any other fuel, put Torco in your ride tune it correctly and you will enjoy it. It has been very good for me for the three gallons I have burned.

I said no RUSTY metal cans. If there is rust on it, it's been sitting around way too long in a way too humid environment.

Yup, rust on metal cans isn't a good sign. Chances are that rust didn't come overnight.

Gacha. Thanks for the clarification. My comprehension must have been really low this morning.

I think I"ll go burn some of that stuff up now...
