2001 C2 Fuel Stabilizer

Vehicle Information: Model: 996 C2; Year: 2001; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 100000;

Now that winter is here i will only be driving my ca 1-4 times per month. Does this infrequent use require me to add fuel stabilizer to the tank? If no, are there any downsides to "contaminating" the fuel with such an additive as a precautionary measure?

2003 911 stuck fuel compartment door

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 20,500;

The door to the fuel compartment (i.e. gas cap) is stuck. What causes this and how can I fix it?

2001 996 C4 Check Engine Light Code 1411

Vehicle Information: Model: 996 C4; Year: 2001; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 55,000;

My check engine light comes on sporadically after I refuel. Never right after I refuel but usually a few days later. Occassionally it will go a tank or 2 of gas before it comes back on again. I get a fault code 1411 Engine Controller. We replaced the gas cap and the 2 secondary air injection valves. The car runs great but the engine light is driving me nuts.I have checked the Q & A site but there's nothing that addresses my problem specifically.

2004 C4S Engine running rough when gas tank is near empty

Vehicle Information: Model: C4S; Year: 2004; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 13,000;

It seems when the gas tank is approaching empty and the warning light comes on, the engine seems to run really rough. When full, there is no problem. Do you think that there is some bad gas that is sitting on top of the good gas in the tank that is finally reaching the bottom, when approaching empty? Would the remedy be to just let the tank run really empty and endure the rough engine or should I drain the tank, and if so, how is this done?

2000 996 gas tank filler location

Vehicle Information: Model: 964 c2, Carrera, Cayman S; Year: 1995; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 45000;

Joel, In response to the question posted about why the gas filler is on the offside, my understanding is that it is prompted by the problem of the driver's door being too close to the pumps. By placing the fuel inlet on the offside the driver can more easily get out of the car without banging the door on the pumps when exiting the car. This also follows along with your point of the spaces at small European gas stations.

on some 996 models, you fill up the gas tank on the passenger side...i've never seen any 911's like that. when did they start making them on the passenger side and why?thank you
