[DML] Sputter and Cough! - All the way home.....



On my way home from the Northeast Exotic show, my car started to 
sputter and cough blowing out a light black smoke.  I went through 
3/4 of a tank of gas in about 60 miles.  Sounds like it's running too 
rich and blowing through gas.

It would sometimes "catch" a good breath and smooth out only to begin 
a downward spiral with even pressure on the gas pedal.  I was losing 
power, but then when I would "punch it" it would sputter up to speed 
while putting out the light colored black smoke.  This was happening 
periodically for the past 4 weeks only in the mornings.  I thought it 
was either bad gas or a clogged fuel filter (which I replaced at the 
beginning of the season).  Seeing how much gas it used in the last 60 
miles of my trip I don't think that's the problem.  Idle was ok for 
the most part with a few stalls at traffic lights.  It started right 
up however.

Any ideas?  O2 sensor?

Thanks

Tom
