Won't start due to brand of gas?

I was talking to my mom who owns a 2010 JK 2 door and she claimed that if she uses anything BUT mobile one gas that it refuses to start in the morning. I personally own a TJ but I was curious if the JKs have any peculiar fuel choices or issues? I feel like she just got a bad tank of gas or two and some other details are being left out. She's been using dry gas in every tank so far

Yes--plainly, completely, utterly, absolutely, unequivocally, certainly, thoroughly, and beyond any doubt false. No question.

So, you're fairly confident then?

yea prolly just bad gas she got once. my first car was an 86 buick skyhawk (what a great car!) i used to go to this little tiny corner gas station because across the way from them was a texaco that had like 20 pumps and always had a lot of cars. idk what they did but they must have had watered down gas or something because my car had huge problems... after i stopped going there and got gas anywhere else the car was fine after a few tanks to clean it out or whatever.

You want a real experience, get some Mexican gas from Mexico. It has sulfer in it. Stinks as well as burns engine parts.
