I guess we are stuck with higher prices at the marinas!


No....Just add Sta-bil Marine to the gas with Ethanol.

Buy it at Wal Mart. It is $20qt.



Q: How does MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment and Performance Improver work, and how is it different from Regular STA-BIL?

A:



MARINE Formula STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment is a new, enhanced formula of STA-BIL, America's top selling fuel stabilizer, that was designed to fight many of the unique problems related to ethanol in gasoline in the moisture-laden marine environment, and fights those problems in three ways:



1. Fights Fuel System Deposits ? Ethanol in gasoline acts as a solvent on the accumulated deposits in marine fuel tanks, fuel lines, carburetors, injectors. These loosened deposits can cause engine performance problems, including hard starting, rough running and stalling. MARINE Formula STA-BIL cleans-up power-robbing deposits from carburetors, fuel injectors and intake valves to improve engine performance. MARINE Formula STA-BIL contains more than FOUR TIMES the fuel system cleaner in Regular STA-BIL ? it is a Complete Fuel System Cleaner.

2. Fights Fuel System Corrosion ? Ethanol in gasoline attracts water from the moist marine air. Since virtually all marine fuel systems manufactured through 2007 vent to the air, the ethanol continually attracts water ? which can cause corrosion damage to marine fuel tanks, fuel lines, carburetors and injectors. MARINE Formula STA-BIL contains DOUBLE the corrosion preventer in Regular STA-BIL, to fight the unique problems of ethanol in gasoline in the marine environment, including marine fuel tanks which vent to the marine air.

3. Fights Fuel Degradation ? Pumped gasoline starts to degrade immediately. MARINE Formula STA-BIL keeps fuel fresh for up to 12 months in marine gas tanks. Just like Regular STA-BIL, adding MARINE Formula STA-BIL Keeps Fuel Fresh , and eliminates the need to drain fuel prior to storage.






Q: In what types of fuel can MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment and Performance Improver be used?



A: MARINE Formula STA-BIL can be used in ALL 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines designed to run on ALL gasoline, gasoline/oil mixtures, and ethanol blends. It is recommended that you treat the fuel in the tank at each fill-up, and each time you fill up the gas can(s).




Q: Can I use MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment and Performance Improver in my marine engine(s) and also in my other gasoline-powered outdoor equipment engines too?



A: Yes, MARINE Formula STA-BIL can be used in ALL marine gas tanks, all inboard and outboard boat motors, onboard generators, and personal watercraft engines. It is also safe for use in all gasoline-powered cars, motor homes, lawnmowers, tractors, snowmobiles, motorcycles, grass trimmers, leaf blowers, tillers, power washers, backup generators, golf carts ? ALL outdoor power equipment. Again, it is best to treat the fuel in the tank at each fill-up, and each time you fill up the gas can(s).







Q: Is MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment safe to use?



A: MARINE Formula STA-BIL is completely safe to use in any engine powered by gasoline, gasoline/oil mixtures, and ethanol blends. It contains no additives that could harm a fuel tank or fuel lines, or an engine, fuel injectors or intake valves. Use of STA-BIL will not void any engine warranty. In addition, over treatment is safe and will not harm engine.







Q: Why is using MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment a better way to store fuel than draining it from the fuel tank and fuel system?



A: MARINE Formula STA-BIL should be used to store fuel in tanks, rather than draining fuel for several reasons. First, it is nearly impossible to get all of the fuel out of the fuel tank and fuel system simply by draining. To remove all of the fuel, the fuel lines and all of the fuel system components must be blown out or enough fuel will remain to cause gun and varnish to form. It is usually difficult to dispose of the drained fuel in an environmentally correct manner. Second, draining fuel exposes the bare metal in the tank and the fuel system to air and moisture that causes corrosion. Third, gaskets and seals may dry out or crack, leading to leaks when the tank and fuel system is refilled. The best solution is to fill the tank 95% full with fresh fuel and to immediately treat the fresh fuel with STA-BIL.







Q: How long will MARINE Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment keep fuel fresh?



A: MARINE Formula STA-BIL keeps fuel fresh for up to 12 months in marine gas tanks and gas cans. Adding STA-BIL prevents the formation of gum and varnish that can cause engine performance problems including hard starting, rough running and stalling.







Q: How much MARINE Formula STA-BIL® should I add to fuel?



A: For everyday in-season engine performance improvement and protection, use 1 ounce (30mL) in every 10 gallons (37.9 L). For seasonal storage and for fuel system clean-up, use 1 ounce (30mL) of MARINE Formula STA-BIL in 5 gallons (18.9 L). Again, over treatment is safe and will not harm engine.


This is how I treat mine all the time.



For seasonal storage and for fuel system clean-up, use 1 ounce (30mL) of MARINE Formula STA-BIL in 5 gallons


That means that the qt will treat 160gal.

Sorry Shark,



Sta-Bil does not prevent phase separation, the biggest problem with fuels containing ethanol.



Sta-bil (or any other chemical) can not change the properties of the ethanol in the gas.



Keeping the tanks full (reducing 'lung effect') and keeping fuel less then 1 year are the only real defenses against phase separation. Fuel stabilizers are still good to use, but they do not fix this problem.

I got bigger problems then phase separation if the fuel in my tanks is a year old or more.
