Re: Rough idle, barely runs at low RPMs.

Word of advice unrelated to the GF. After years of marriage and 80% of our friends now divorced. If either partner is that impatient the marriage will likely not last. Do you think the pioneers who walked across this country treated each other that way? You stated you took risks and did things you likely would not have to “attempt to keep her happy”. Also the fact that you were locked out when you finally got home was another indication… Word of advise from someone with 25 years of marriage. You need a partner who answers the “sickness & health, richer/ poorer, good times and bad”, etc. sincerely. You don’t need a slave but a friend who has your back. IF you learn anything from this forum this will be of the most value over the next 50 years. Just my $.02.

Agree 100% !!! I had bad running engine as you described. I put gas in mine too. Would barely run & had to restart a few times to limp home. I syphoned out as much as I could. Refill tank with 10 gal of diesel & one quart of Diesel-kleen. Cycled key about 7 times and waited for pump to stop each time(about 20-30 seconds) Then try & start. Ran very, very poorly for about 2-3 minutes then slowly cleared up. Then ran it about a good 20 minutes to get real hot. Everything seems ok now. I hope yours is just fuel related & can fix with filter & good fuel. Good luck & keep us informed of out come .
