I know it just was st paddys day but... my old truck has a miss and thought it may be water in the gas so i drained some into a glass jar to look at and it was green !! Smells old no water sep,I had put stabil additive in it recently.It has rec 90 gas which is suppost to be low alcohol . Any thoughts?
As for the miss plugs look good , not backfiring just seems low on power and has a stutter from 900 to 2500 rpm. idles ok.

Are you sure it's not diesel? That has a slight green tinge to it.

Sounds like old gas to me. Always turns green. If fuel level is low enough, you might be able to add enough new gas to burn through it. Otherwise, siphon/drain it.

If you lived here and the gas was purple, I would say you used the pump that's for boats and farms. Purple gas is not for highway use - no road tax paid.
