    My Honda Integra 90 clogs up on 2000rpm and I really have to give it to
    reach 3000 and up, but after 2000 its fine. I took it to the mechanic and he
    said it was petrol wasn't good quality and suggested I use it up and fill up
    premium unleaded to clean it up. Has anyone had a common problem? or know
    anything about it?

    Several years ago, there was an old gas station or petrol station that had
    storgage tanks buried in the ground that were over 40 years old. We
    stopped going to the station after the family car started running poorly
    every time we purchased gas at that station. We stopped buying gas at that
    gas station and the problem went away. Several years later, we saw an
    article in the local paper related to the gas station owner admitting that
    the storage tank had a hole in the top of it and rain water would get in
    the tank after every major rain storm.
    You should change the gas filter since it is probably contaminated and
    fill up the tank with gas purchased at a fairly new gas station that has
    newer storage tanks. Also, I advise you to buy major brands since they are
    more likely to have cleaner gasoline. It does not have to be premium gas
    or petrol.

    very true about the fuel filter and the major brand buying does not have to
    be premium just a name brand

    Go to Costco and buy four bottles of Chevron fuel cleaner for $10+ and
    it does help.
