So my engine wasn't too happy today. It wouldn't rev up over 4k, 6th gear at 40 mph caused major vibrations--all around not happy. This happened when I filled up.

SES light came on--all sorts of misfires (startup and fuel cut off) in cylinders 1, 3, 4, and 6.

Put in "Lucas" fuel treatment and after 30 miles, drives fine. Expect SES light to go out soon.

I guess I'll do a precautionary fuel filter change. Because of multiple cylinder misfires, I assumed it was fuel.

You will most likely have to clear some fault codes also. Had this happen to me previously, it was BP fuel and the alcohol content was around 17%, the max the engine can take is ten. BMW recommeded to me to use Shell or Sunoco.

Feed it to the neighbors cats. Or, put it in your neighbors lawnmower, or GM product. Should would well for all three applications.
