I appreciate your concern, I really do, but every forum I go to (not for gas, many others I frequent for mechanic work and software) has people like you. By that I mean people who say to give up because I am not a pro.
My guess is that you are a pro so you don't have the full understanding of how it feels to be on the other side of things, trying to find help, and unable to afford a proper professional.
Again, your concern is appreciated, but spamming unhelpful comments on posts seeking advice does not help whatsoever.
Yes, I know I technically should call a pro. I chose not to and a stranger on the internet telling me to give up will not stop me.
The only thing your comment did in my post was water down the helpful comments and possibly drove other insightful comments away because often times people do not bother with threads with many comments.
If you really want to help, you could give actual advice, or simply tell me what to avoid so I can stay out of harm's way.
