    Anybody have a preferred brand of fuel (gasoline) stabilizer they use? A few of my old pieces sit for months and I'd like to use a good quality stabilizer. It would be with both carb and injected engines.

    Thanks

    Seafoam. After using Sta-bil for a number of years I found the Seafoam is better. Does a better job and for longer periods.

    I use seafoam as well. I don't remember what they say for a mix. I think their site is seafoamsales.com. If you want to use stabil, use the marine version of it.

    One can per 20 gallon is my preferred treatment. Tough to over treat with it regardless.

    How often? I put a can in every 3 fill ups. Tank holds 22 gal. That's not overtreating is it?

    It's virtually impossible to over treat with SF...within reason of course.

    I put a whole can in one of my mower this year not thinking when I poured it. Smoke some but cleaned it and workin better.

    Thanks for the knowledge, B&B and 06Sierra. I'm going to run Seafoam from now on.
