I got a friend with a 00 lightning and some punk put a pound or more sugar in his gas tank. He said it woudlnt run over 20 miles an hour and it would always bog out when he pushed the gas tank. I'm just wonderin what kind of damage this does to the engine.
I was under the impression that since sugar won't disolve in gas that it would just plug/clog up the filter, thereby restricting fuel flow. That sounds like what would allow him to only get up to 20 mph. Could a person remove the plugged filter, while opening the fuel line into a empty gas can or other container to drain the sugar, or would this require dropping the tank?
