Looking at the list of top tier gas stations, I haven't purchased top tier gas in over 10 years. Unless my local Wawa sells it but doesn't advertise it.

I think that's the key. Not whether you use synthetic or conventional. Get whatever is the best deal and change it more often. You will be way ahead of the game. It's not like there is a oil shortage. Geez.

I have heard that with some Jeep 4.0L engines, you can swap multi-hole injectors from a different vehicle and get a performance gain because of improved atomization. I'm not sure about what car has the multi-hole injector that fits.

What kind and weight oil are you using? I would change oil and go with a heavier oil. Even a 15w40 oil and see what happens. I certainly would go dumping Sea Foam down plug holes-yet? Diesel oil is very robust and I think will really stop or greatly

Sounds like your brake is dragging. Could be stuck caliper a seized slider pin or bad brake hose. Check the wheel with the most brake dust.

See if you can free stuck rings by putting seafoam or MMO down the spark plug holes. However, if the rings are in extremely bad condition, no chemical can save your engine. Lucas oil additive might make it run a little bit better.
