I had it towed and had the distributor replaced. They told me I had lots of gas in the oil (which I had replaced 1000 miles before). I had them change the oil and then I crossed my fingers and resumed my road trip.
From then on I got 30 mpg again.
If I the rings caused the gas in the oil and the huge fuel consumption, wouldn't it have continued on the road trip. I checked my dip stick on the road and didn't notice any gas smell.
Any ideas about what caused the one time massive gas consumption and gas in the oil?
have the same problem?
