Hey All,:wave:

I would like to get as many opinions as possible on what additive is the best to stablize gasoline. I know by reading the other here, that peolpe are doing lots of things to help with the gas problems in out GT's. Maybe we could start a poll or something to get feedback on this issue. I'm very tired of always cleaning and or rebuilding carb.

What does everybody else think?:anyone:

Thanks, Brian

I always run a fuel stabilizer in all my equipment that sits during the winter. I dont always buy the same brand...usually whatever is on the shelf at the time LOL

You could start a poll if you wanted to

Dr.

Does the stabilizer work well? How long will it keep the gas good?

I cant say for sure, but I think on the bottle it says a year to a year and a half.

I used to use Sta-Bil with good results. Now I've gone to Seafoam, stabilizes & cleans with no "shelf-life". ~~ grnspot110

I try to make sure I always put stabilizer in the gas can every time I fill it. That way if something sits for awhile there hopefully won't be any problems. I have been using Sta-Bil but I will be checking out the Seafoam mentioned before. Definitely like the idea of no "shelf-life".
