Winterizing 06 rxt
Yes, I am fully aware that it is not even June, however that doesn't minimize my curiousity on the proper technique for winterizing a 4 tec engine. I used to own a 951 2 stroke and winterizing that was a breeze. If someone could point me to the proper thread, or continue with the process on this thread, I'd appreciate it. I feel more comfortable learning the proper process and doing it myself rather than taking it to a dealership. I'm going to be buying a shop manual soon but I doubt they would have the winterizing process in there.

Winterize is when you prepare the ski's engine for the cold climate and being layed up for a while e.g. fuel stabilizer..stuff like that.

In winterizing you flush out as must water in the intercooler and exhaust system as possible. As we knwo water expands as it freezes and can cause havoc on intercoolers and engine blocks.

during winterization with the fuel level, i heard you should have as little fuel as possible in the tank when you are preparing to winterize but still adding fuel stabilizer. Now i heard you should have a full-tank of gas with the stabilizer. im getting two different answers.
which is better, or does it even matter?

When you winterize motorcycles you should use a full tank of gas because their tanks are metal and it would prevent rust. In seadoos, the gas tank is a composite of some fiberglass I believe. Especially with most gas today being 10% Ethanol, you don't want to fill your tank up much at all due to the properties in ethanol which could break down the fiberglass particles in the tank.
