Is this a case of using Chevron premium gas ? there has been a lot of cases of engines being totaled because of this. Was on the news Monday night

Interesting. I actually bought this one with a bad engine. So I have no idea what happened. I'm guessing maintenance was a little lacking, but not sure. I've got zero compression on one cylinder and week on a couple more on the same bank. The other bank is pretty good. I'm guessing timing chain or camshaft.
