I came across a new product yesterday while at a small engine shop. It's called Mechanicinabottle.com . It has two things that I really liked. #1) it has a fuel stabilizer to counteract the etenol in our gas now. #2) it has a solvent in it that lets you clean the carburator in your car, truck, mower, GT, LT, Etc.. It also has a water disapation property and can be used as a fuel satabilizer for your equipment while not in use.
I was a bit skeptical but got to looking at the info in the store and asked the owner if he used it yet and he said he had with great results. It is supposed to restore rubber products inside the gas delivery system as well as clean the carb, valves etc..I was going to buy some but it is $ 69.99 for a gallon, however acording to the web site, mechanicinabottle.com , the gallon will treat 1280 gallons of gas. This was the first I had seen of it and would really like to try it. I emailed the the company and asked them to send me a sample to try on an old Sears LT that I have with a Briggs 8hp verticle in it that hasn't been started since 1996. We will see what they say.
I haven't seen it sold there yet but Home Depot, & Tractor Supply are supposed to be retailers for it. It does come in smaller bottles but this dealer didn't have the small bottles.
If I get some I will let you know how it works. If it works like it is supposed to it may take a lot of wotk out of getting small engines (and big ones) running and keeping them running easier. Roger.
