That's when I also switched to PS because it's easier to find. Car was faster than it was when I bought it but I thought that was because of the cleaner filters.

I am not talking of a big problem here but I can tell the engine is working harder and rougher than before.

Again, with the Stanadyne Performance Formula. Good stuff, but guess where the water ends up?

In my VW experience, the water ends up in the fuel filter, and you drain the water out every 10K miles. The filter is replaced every 20K miles.

I have been using B20 and the white PS for about 60,000 miles.
