Thread: Condensation

  1. #1


    I just got the ski back from the dealer after the 10 hour service and winterization. The tank is only about half full, and from what I (think I) know, the tank should be full for winterization because condensation will form in the tank and water will enter the gas. Should I fill it up?

    Yes, it should be nearly (95%) full and have some Sta-Bil in it.... Ron

    I just run it down til the ski is beeping at me like crazy. Throw in a little stable run it through the fuel lines and you're set. That way you don't spend all that $$$ and have a fuel tank of gas with stable to run through your first couple rides of the next season.

    I worry about condensation in cars with steel gas tanks, ski's with plastic tanks I like to leave it low on fuel so I don't have to worry about stale fuel on the first ride of the season.

    I thought condensation occured when the air temp on one side of a surface was drastically different than that on the other....or...when warm air blew against a cool surface?

    A fuel tank is a closed system...where is it getting enough air to form any apprecaible amount of water?

    Some enters through the fuel vent that exits under the rubrail..

    Wouldn't it have to sorta be circulating or something?
