2.0 out of 5 stars Sta-Bil, June 29, 2011
This review is from: STA-BIL 22214 Fuel Stabilizer - 32 Fl oz. (Automotive)
I used this product in my Waverunner, Snowmobile and Boat.
Put it in every tank every time I needed to add gas.
All engines were made by Yamaha, I need to do over all my Carburetors
which was very costly. This product seemed to break down and gunk up the carburetor.
Not happy with the perfomance. My son who does nothing in his Ski-Doo has never
had a problem, just empties the gas at the end of the season.
I have switched to another product.

It's meant as a storage treatment not as an every fill up fuel treatment. You put this stuff in your boat snowmobile, ect when you are going to need to store it for extended periods of time not when you're using it every weekend or day.

I am assuming that you used 87 octane with 10% ethonal.
And some want government to take over the health care system.
I know that Skil and John Deere do not recommend 87 octane.
There may be products out there that will help with the government ethonal.

I am trying "Briggs and Straton Fresh Start"
It's written to keep gas safe for two years.
I don't know, but I am going to try it out instead of this stablizer due to this review.
Thanks for the review/heads up.

You guys really have NO CLUE! When gas sits around for extended period of times YOU should have something in it for a treatment.
Ethonol breaks down very quickly. I'd fill the gas tank in the wave runner in May and wouldn't finish the tank until the end of August.
Do the math, gas should be used within 30 days of purchase. You can run stabilizer with your gas a gas treatment. After all that what it's
meant to do. Case and Point, I shut down my Harley in November, it's gets stabilizer, usually when I run the bike it gets refilled more often
no need for stabilizer. The snowmobile gets filled and may sit for weeks, and again the seasons end is determinded by the weather.

I use Stab-il every year in all my engines; snow-blowers in spring, movers, blowers etc. in fall. Next season, they start right up after priming. Follow directions for proper mixing, run through the engine, shut off the gas and let engines run dry & stop. Next season, always good to go. This guy used it as an additive but it's not an additive. It's not for running, it's for storage.

The label says it can be used as an additive.
