>> Why not buy ethanol free unleaded regular to begin with.
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.
>> Stabil makes another product for daily use to counteract the ethanol in gas. It is clear to light yellow in color
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.
Q: What is the difference between Marine Formula STA-BIIL®, STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer, and the new STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment products?
A: Marine Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment was designed for use at every fill up for marine engines (boats, jetskis) to protect against the damaging effects experienced when using Ethanol blended fuels — including corrosion caused by water attraction, and fuel system plugging caused by deposit loosening.
STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer is designed for use during STORAGE of any gasoline equipment or vehicle stored for 30 days or more, or used infrequently. It will keep gas fresh for 12 months, and help prevent corrosion, and gum and varnish formation.
New STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment is designed for use at every fill up for all gasoline automotive and small engines for protection against these same problems.
All STA-BIL® brand products are effective in all gasolines, including Ethanol blends, including E-85.
