Anyone Use Stabil In Their Gas?

Recommended Posts

Recently I paid over $600 for engine repairs, some of which involved gas line rot from ethanol, screwing up my fuel pump and three carbs. Other than the red Stabil gas additive, a friend told me about Stabil that looks like motor oil but that protects against ethanol damage. He said he thought it also increased performance.

Anyone use it or other additive for the same reason?

I run Quick Kleen all the time and if I'm not going for a while I fill up and put Sea Foam in. I run Sea Foam in all my mowers, weedeaters, etc.

What's the difference between red stabil and marine stabil? I've been using red and seafoam for 10 years and haven't had issues.

Good question. I've used the red and the marine Stabil. I have not had any issues either.

Frank!! Glad to have you back!

I use Marine Stabil ALL the time, year round, plus Ringfree, in every tankful without fail.

Marine Stabil is twice as concentrated as the pink Stabil, plus it has a few extra additives.

Don't be a stranger Frank!

I use the non ethanol fuel. It cost a little more & is readily available around here.

Thanks everyone!! I've been pulling my hair out trying to find some form of protection from ethanol rot. Marine Stabil and Sefoam I'm going to use regularly.

Hi Glen

I'll post a cool perspective on brush guards as soon as I copy and paste from another forum. It's only logical.

I have been using the red stabil for many years without any problems. I also add seafoam a couple times each year to clean out deposits. It works great!

Marine Stabil all the time, plus pulling the fuel line and running my engine out of gas before pulling the boat from the water if I won't be fishing within a couple of days. I run a tank treated with seafoam 3-4 times a year.

I use marine Stabil also , every tankful. The last tankful I ran I tried a product called Ethanol Shield that was recommended to me from the owner of a small enginge shop our garage deals with, it was a free sample to me so I'll see how it works.

Star-tron in every tank, Seafoam a couple times a year. Did use the blue marine Sta-bil for a few years, but had gas problems out of storage this past spring, so I switched to Star-tron.

Note: Stabil Marine is $20 for 32 oz. on Amazon - much cheaper than buying the smaller amounts from Walmart which came to over $34 for 3-10 oz containers.

S/H for me was free because of Prime membership ($79/yr).

My local Gander Mtn had it for about $20 for the 32 oz.

Anybody try Star Brite Star Tron? I want to the local tackle and marine store yesterday looking for either Seafoam or Marine Stabil and they were out. They did have one bottle of Star Brite Star Tron left so I bought it.

It seems I need to use very little. I had 3 gallons of gas left in my tank so I just put a splash of the stuff in the tank because they called for 1 oz for 8 gallons.

Is the stuff any good?
