    Winterizing and Gas ?

    Greetings--

    GTX-SC

    Coments on leaving talk full of gas with stabilized vs draining tank and running out the gas in the hoses/system ? I've always topped off the tank and added stabilizer-- but thought I'd ask.....

    fill it up and STABIL...empty attracts condensation and dry, cracked lines?

    never had a prob topping it off...plus then you are ready for that first nice day to blow it all out!

    Mix Stabil in the tank the last time you ride .

    Don,t just add stabil and start the engine for 30 seconds.

    I leave 2-3 gallons inthe tank as everything is Stabiled then in the Spring you can Fill it with Fresh 93 Octane.

    One good thing about ethanol in the gas is it will absorb any water from condensation and keep it in solution until it is burned. No need to add "dry gas" anymore as 10% ethanol already has it.

    Doesn't the vapor vent off the gas tank have a one-way valve to let out vapors from the expanding gas? If so, then if the tank is nearly empty, won't the large volume of air when cooling (from a nearly empty tank) cause a vacuum in the tank unless the filler cap is loosened slightly?... Ron

    Do as stated!
    I have done this since 1990 when I first got into jetskis and never have had a problem

    Just so you guys know, there is a new marine version of Stabil. It's supposed to be better at fighting the negative effects of ethanol. I've been using it in my boat all year.
