    You do not need any antifreeze in your engine. Just start your engine and rev it up briefly. Remove the water hose going to the exhaust manifold to allow the water to drain from the engine copmletely.

    You should use a Gasoline Stabilizer in your fuel and run it for 4-5 minutes after you make sure it is mixed well. It helps prevent formation of rust and corrosion on the bare metal in the tank and fuel system and the drying and cracking of gaskets and seals. It also prevents formation of varnish and gum in the fuel system. Here is the link to that product from AMSOIL http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?zo=367509&page=storefront/ast
    Sta-bil is also a Gasoline Stabilizer that is a good product.


    Here is the Fogging oil from AMSOIL. It acts as a barrier that keeps condensation from coming into direct contact with steel and iron components, that forms surface corrosion on cylinder liners, piston rings, anti-friction bearings and steel/iron contact surfaces on rotational seals.
