    n00b question on fuel

    I just had my ski summerized. However, when it was winterized last year, i still had half a tank of fuel in there sitting all winter.

    When i fill up the tank when i am about to go riding, can i add an octane booster since the old fuel has been sitting there for months?

    Or will doing this run the risk of messing up the fuel system?

    Please let me know what to do.

    Thanks everyone.

    Did you use anything like Stabil in the gas when it was winterized? It keeps gas good for around 6 months... Ron

    Top it off and ride it out. In the future though, you should put stabil in your tank and fill it up when you winterize it. I wouldn't do the octane booster. Bad gas is bad gas, no matter the octane.
