    Old fuel and fourstrokes?

    With old two-strokes and especially tunned ones old gas could cause Big problems
    but how sensitive are the fourstrokes? Typical question fuel standing over the winter?

    worse problem with 4 strokes and gas sitting very long is injectors can get clogged up.

    Personally I do not. I only use stabil when I winterize the ski for the winter. I run the ski enough that gas doesnt sit in it for more than a week.

    I use SeaFoam on all my equipment (ATV, PWC, blower, Weedwacker, mover, etc.) that sits or is exposed to moisture. It works great!

    On the weekends I take long rides, going farther each time, going to new places so my gas does not sit long. I fill the tank up on the way home after each ride as I am slow in the AM...
    I am always ready to ride! The local dealer is pushing the Fuel additives and was just wanted to know what everyone else is doing.
