Have had it on vacation and had many gas fills and it still does it. Service manager says oh that northern fuel is different that ours!! Very frustrating!! I am afraid it could be dangerous if in the right circumstance.

Wow! Never heard about fuel differences causing problems during or after vacations..here on the West coast, we change our fuel blends each 6 months with no change in engine operation other than mileage variances, I think the Service manager you spoke to is feeding you a line. even a tank of "Bad gas" will not cause long term problems unless it clogs a fuel filter. Even putting Diesel fuel in your tank will not cause long term problems as proven by the video following (see it on youtube and look over the description and comments) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwv5esyv9-U My suggestion is to get a second opinion from another dealership or perhaps the Mitsubishi corporate district office and stay away from that dealership if possible.
