Thread: Fuel stabilizer

USE IT!!! I have decided after today that the smell that I hate the most is old stale gas! I spent a few hours trying to get my custom dune buggy running so that I can sell it. It has a 1970's Honda 360 twin streetbike engine in it with dual carbs. Of course after sitting for the last 2.5 years in the back yard without running, the carbs needed the old stale gas cleaned out of them. Finally got it running, but that smell is still with me. Can't seem to get rid of that stale gas smell. I sure hope that the carbs on my Sleeper project are not plugged up with old stale gas. I would be tempted to buy a set of 44s off someone rather than deal with that smell again! I wish that I had used some FUEL STABILIZER so that I could have avoided the situation. Of course actually using it each summer would have helped a bit too!

have used red stabil for years, never a problem starting skis/outboards in the spring.
have recently switched to ethanol fuel version as a lot of gas in michigan contains ethanol witch can cause big fuel system problems.

it will take about a year of old gas to give you problems , as long as the temp didnt go up or down and its properly sealed off , that gas should be good and should just need a splash of new gas to get it right
