    Smile Gas - ethanol- STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer - Marine Formula blue

    1st weekend out with the 09 FX-HO, had 15 hrs on her
    Couple we got it from told us they only run Marine fuel in it.

    So I found a local gas station with 93 oct. non ethanol " marine fuel" $3.95 per gal.
    I still added a 1-2 oz. of the STA-BIL to be safe will this hurt it? had a less then 3 bars

    Should I still run STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer - Marine Formula blue all the time
    also run is salt water.

    Thank Guys alot of good info here

    what you did was fine, stabil won't hurt anything. You don't need to use it all the time, unless your not going to be using the ski for 3 weeks or more.

    Stabil and Star Tron won't hurt anything unless you put insane amounts in. Unnecessary maybe, but they won't cause damage. I run a little bit of both in every tank because I'm never sure when I'll be able to use it again and all our gas has ethanol.

    Wouldn't an '09 FX HO be fine with 87 octane with some ethanol? I only worry about the fuel I put in my boosted ski and those concerns only came after adding boost.

    All stations here only sell 10% ethanol. I don't use sta-bil except when the ski is in storage and I've never had a problem.
