Was looking for a Fuel stabilizer specifically designed for Small engines. A normal everyday fuel stabilizer does help but it's not designed for smaller Carburetors with a float bowl. Thus you will still get those corrosion lines and gunk buildup above the fuel in a carburetor.

 

Sta-Bil put this on the market last month. This looks VERY promising for us small engine peoples.

 

It's impossible to find in Auto parts stores but some dealers are starting to carry it. Our local Messick Farm Equipment dealers have it in stock but haven't found it any where else yet.  I'm anxious to get ahold of a 1 gallon jug. 1 8oz bottle treats 8 x 5 gallon gas containers.

STA-BIL 360° Performance (Small Engine Formula)

  • Ultimate protection against Ethanol blended fuels
  • Helps clean fuel system to improve performance
  • Helps prevent corrosion above and below the fuel line – where no other additive can!
  • Use in season and out of season
  • Stabilizes fuel up to 12 months
  • Size: 8 oz. bottle

 

More Information
The Next Level Of Performance Is In The Vapor.

STA-BIL 360˚®  PERFORMANCE™SMALL ENGINE is the only fuel treatment to emit a revolutionary vapor that rises above the fuel line to protect your engine where others can’t. Use it with every fill up to help keep your engine running cleaner, leaner, smoother and stronger.

Usage Directions:

To measure small quantities: Remove small cap & seal (on long neck) squeeze bottle to desired level, and pour. To measure large quantities: remove large cap & seal, pour (measurements on bottle side).

1oz. (30mL) treats 5 gallons (19L) of fuel. Recommended for use AT EVERY FILL UP in season for year round performance & protection. Product does not contain alcohol.

STA-BIL 360˚®  PERFORMANCE™SMALL ENGINE HELPS TAKE PERFORMANCE OVER THE TOP.
  • INCREASE POWER: Strip away carbon buildup, gum and varnish that can inhibit engine performance, and get the most out of your fuel by burning it more completely. Bring back the power your engine once knew.
  • CLEAN FUEL SYSTEM: Clear and prevent harmful gum, varnish and buildup throughout the combustion chamber and injectors.
  • PREVENT ETHANOL DAMAGE: Protect your entire fuel system against damaging rust and corrosion caused by moisture and ethanol fuels. An exclusive Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor rises above the fuel line to provide a protective coating on ALL the metal parts of the entire fuel system and combustion chamber, even when the engine is not running.

My experience with stabilizers over the past 20+ years has generally been bad. I recommend Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas and run the engine out of gas before you put it away for awhile. Good Luck, Rick

I've seen that RoadKing did a video on that.  its looks pretty promising but will have to wait till next year to find out that ethanol crap though sure isn't good on engines though. Maybe ill try to get some of that one day if it ever comes to stores

Not having pure gas (non-ethanol) available must really stink.

I've been treating with Lucas Fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for a few years and it works ok. I Still get some Water/Ethanol separation in a float bowl if it sets longer than a couple months but it isn't nearly as bad as just straight gas.

Don, I know you commute a ways, which direction from home do you go? The map lists the airports in Joliet and Paxton, plus a gas station in Forrest, which has ethanol free 87 octane.

I am right in between all of those, I am about an hour away from all of them, I commute south East for work, basically away from all of them.paxton would be closest to work but almost an hour SW From there.

used to work in Joliet, didn't know that you could buy fuel at an airport if you don't have a plane. All are too far away to make it worth going there just for a can of gas.

Here in Canada Shell says that their high test fuel doesn't  have ethanol in it. Another place to get ethanol free fuel is at a marina.

I have to stay with the tried and true MMO or Seafoam. Plus I use non-ethanol gas.
