Now that I live 0.5 miles from work, any vehicle I drive to work now by default lives a much harder life than before. Somehow I didn't foresee that when I signed my lease (with my workplace in the background).

My remedy to preventing carbon buildup is a good ol' "Italian Tuneup". I basically redline every shift at least once a week and make sure the car gets its legs stretched. I have to do the same with the scooter I sometimes ride to work. If I don't, the crank breather starts spitting out milky oil..

I would try a double dose of Marvel Mystery Oil & see if that will clear up the rough running engine. If it does, put in 2 ounces of MMO every other tankful.
