My vehicles only run on top tier, 91 octane, ethanol-free gas.
Same. Shell near me used to have it I think but no longer. There is a non-TT station that does but I don’t use it.I am not sure that I have ever seen "Top Tier" branded ethanol free gas.
Surprisingly - BP isn't a top-tier fuel: top tier fuel brands - Google SearchAgree … not sure which brand is best, but I only use BP or Shell in my old 987.2 BS … she only likes the good stuff and will sputter on Speedway … she’s a bit of a diva when it comes to her fuel.
Also, read the signs at the station.Surprisingly - BP isn't a top-tier fuel: top tier fuel brands - Google Search
That's not to say it's a bad brand, I've been using it (and Amoco before it was bought by BP) for about 55 years now. Back when Amoco was the only unleaded fuel available.
Some surprising brands ARE Top-Tier in the US, some of the discount brands: TOP TIER™ Gasoline Brands - TOP TIER™
I’m always surprised by who is and is not on the TT list. I always thought BP was.Surprisingly - BP isn't a top-tier fuel…
I, quite a few months ago - used regular ceramic sealant on the same cowl section while I was doing the entire paint finish on the car, and the difference was dramatic, it basically looked new. Mine wasn't quite as faded as yours was though. It's held up since then fine, but I think for Christmas I received the same CERAKOTE trim coat kit, and tried it.Used a ceramic coating product on the cowl below the windshield wipers, which had faded to a light gray color. Used CERAKOTE® Ceramic Trim Coat Kit - Quick Plastic Trim Restorer. Quick and easy using pre-moistened applicators. It's supposed to last for 200 washes. We'll see.
For now, just did one coat as I was running out of sunlight.
Keep in mind that "petroleum distillates" are usually just carriers for the actual main ingredient that you're interested in. The distillates evaporate away, leaving behind the actual ingredient you're interested in... in the case of the fabric guard, it's the protectant. This could be the same or similar as the grout sealer, but it may not be.Finally got around to wash / coat the soft top (after removing the hard top and doing Mother's day chores ) with 303, and found out 303 Fabric Guard has the same main ingridient as my tile grout sealer (i.e., petroleum distillates) - I was curious as the odor was the same.
The fender liner was not difficult to remove, 5 torx screws and 3 10mm plastic bolts. However, there are two fasteners that are hard to see/find. One is a torx screw under the rocker, just behind the wheel opening. It is very close to the jacking point, so it may be hidden depending on where your jack stand or lift pad has been placed. The other is a 10mm plastic nut that is in a recess up in the wheel well, at about an 11:00 o'clock position as you look at the well.I had a slight washer fluid leak. It seems to have stopped for the time being. I will have to check for that same issue next time I have the front driver's wheel off the car. Hopefully it isn't too difficult to dig into the fender liner.
Do check the washer pump/motor - most of the leaks come from the rubber around it.I had a slight washer fluid leak. It seems to have stopped for the time being.
