    Car won't start after using NOS fuel additive

    My E46 was running like crap on my way home from work so I stopped at a gas station to get some NOS. I poured in 2 bottles and drove it home. Well I don't think it helped because it ran even worse on the way home and now it won't start. Any ideas?

    The additives can clog injectors. If it got worse after the additive, that would be my guess. Sounds like some issue with the fuel system.

    What do you mean exactly by it was running like crap to begin with?

    It was running rough so I though some NOS would help, higher octane is always better right?

    I don't how how MORE octane can hurt anything....

    Well, that was not higher octane fuel it was artificially inflated with an octane booster.

    If the injectors were clogged or not running right to begin with, then yes, it certainly may have hurt and octane was probably not the problem to begin with. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

    Best bet is to have it towed to the dealer.

    How many miles on your car? When was the last time you replaced your fuel filter?
