    Hey all (chris), My moms misubishi endevor gives a ghastly smell if yu don't put in premium. It smells like sulfur, or what i give off after a burrito. Not a problem just curious why it does it.

    you know i'm not sure. It calls for 89 octane and we shared the car for 2 years. She wanted me to wait til after my first year at college to get a car since it would sit for 8 months depreciating. I hated it but in hindsight it was a fantastic Idea. I'm well aware of the smell because whenever it was my turn to fill up i would put in 87 :devil:

    Its just the cat. Many cars from the early 90's and up, have that issue.

    Ok it smells like rank ass. Any fixes, or just live with it?

    how many miles? If it smells like rotten eggs then its more then likely time for a new cat. converter. I think there only supposed to last like 100-125K
