Why not buy ethanol free unleaded regular to begin with. It’s about the same price as premium or about 30 cents per gallon more. I would still use the red Stabil if you keep the gas for more than 1 month. Stabil makes another product for daily use to counteract the ethanol in gas. It is clear to light yellow in color, but you’re better off getting the ethanol free gas if it’s available in your area.
I can never understand why all the FReepers who complain about expensive problems with their OPE don’t do exactly as you say, or head to the local airport for some avgas.
Yeah it’s a bit more per gallon, but how much cost are we really talking about vs the problems they claim to have?

Uh... because that would require me to plan ahead? :-)
But seriously, I did buy and use five gallons of av gas from a pilot friend and it worked great. It’s just not as instant-gratification convenient as buying gas anywhere and adding something to it.

OH NO!!! There’s a YELLOW one too? If you mix the blue stuff with the red stuff and add the yellow stuff, do you have WHITE Sta-Bil? j/k thanks for the tip, I’ll look for it.
In some areas it is not available. It is over 100 miles (one way) from my place near Houston to the nearest store claiming to sell ethanol free gasoline.
There are a lot of us that don’t have ethanol free gas within 50 miles or more.
