Doesn't make sense to me either but it seemed to do the trick for me. Then again, at all other times it was running fine so who knows. You didn't happen to notice a fuel tanker at the gas station while you were there did you? I've read where that really stirs up the 'crap' in the gas station tanks and can lead to quite a bit of water that can take awhile to settle back down to the botton. Happened to me once with a Subaru although the gas stationed denied any liability (near empty tank, filled up, car died couple miles away from the station, Subaru drained tank and said it was like 1/3 water )
