    Today I had to stomp on the gas pedal to get into to traffic. The engine loaded up and away I went without a problem, but when I looked in the rear view mirror to see who I'd cut off, all I saw was a massive cloud of BROWN exhaust. I've never seen this, I've seen blue and white and black, but never brown. We use oxygenated fuel during the winter months here but thats been here for ten years. Any ideas? Other than this episode the truck runs fine.

    Was there maybe a whole bunch of dirt on the road that you didn't see and kicked up a bunch of dust.

    Hey Riz, I appreciate the kind though but, no.... Not this old crate. Maybe on a good downhill stretch. I dunno, I guess I'll blame it on the gas. I know what it is! All this expensive gas were using is laced with water, and.......... my blazer sat in the driveway all week long and......ummmm it rusted the inside of my exhaust pipes, see? and when I stomped on it, um..... all the rust blew out, THATS why it was brown! I'm on vacation, I'm bored and I'm going back to bed. Have a great Holiday everyone.
